Five ways to spend your weekend on campus

Congratulations, you made it through your second week of classes! Now it’s time to soak up what’s left of the sunshine-filled days and tackle your two days off or sit back and relax— it’s your call. If you’re at a standstill on what to do, here are some options to make it that much easier for your brain to shut off and ease into weekend mode:

1.)    Head over to the home football game against New Hampshire Saturday at 3 p.m at the Kelly Shorts Stadium. Students get in free with their CMU ID. Don’t forget to show your school spirit before the game by tailgating, which starts at noon.

2.)    Check out CMU and You Day. This event is created for high school students and their parents, but is an opportunity to learn about the programs offered at CMU and learn more about campus. CMU and You Day is Saturday from 9:30 to 3 p.m. at varying locations on campus. To learn more go to:
