September 2023 Commuters at Marquette Newsletter


Homecoming starts this week Saturday, 9/23 with our Kick-Off Party on 12th Street Outside the Al McGuire Center from 4-6pm. The street will be closed for the festivities including food, music, and games. A limited number of Homecoming T-shirts will also be given away. First come, first served. Then head inside the Al for the 6pm Women’s Volleyball match against Georgetown. Students get free admission.

With commuters in mind, we’ve also planned the Splash of Spirit event on Tuesday, 9/26 at 11am outside on Eckstein Commons (between the AMU and Schroeder Hall). This event includes DIY spirit gear including tye-dye shirts and the popular MU bucket hat. Then join CSA for Ian’s Pizza in the Commuter Lounge at noon.
