2. Marquette women’s volleyball team holding walk at Triplesfest

The Marquette women's volleyball team will hold “Walk for Women’s Volleyball” at its annual volleyball Triplesfest tournament Saturday, June 21, at Veteran's Park in Milwaukee. Pre-walk activities begin at 9:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 10:30 a.m. The run/walk is open to everyone, not just tournament players.

Triplesfest is an annual three-versus-three grass volleyball tournament. Proceeds from the walk and the tournament benefit the 2008 Volleyball Locker Room Renovation Campaign and the Milwaukee Breast and Cervical Cancer Awareness Program.

Participants may register at the event or send in a registration form, available online. Cost is $25 per person. Strollers, wheelchairs, rollerblades and pets are welcome. For more information, contact Raftyn Rignell, assistant coach, at 8-6094.

3. Qdoba coming to campus area

Qdoba Mexican Grill will open on the Marquette campus this summer. Qdoba, a nationally franchised restaurant specializing in fast, fresh Mexican cuisine, will be located at the northwest corner of 16th and Wells, in space recently vacated by George Webb’s.

Mike Whittow, vice president for Hilltop Enterprises, Inc., said George Webb decided to leave the area after five years. “George Webb was a welcome partner in the mix of food operations made available in Campus Town,” he said. “With their departure, we are delighted to have secured so quickly a tenant of the caliber of Qdoba.”

Qdoba offers its signature burritos, tacos, salads, quesadillas, nachos and more. Qdoba expect to open by the end of August.
