MU Supports Local Selfie Challenge

Shop local during this holiday season! Marquette’s Employee Resource Groups are sponsoring a #MUsupportslocal selfie challenge. It’s easy: just buy from a local business, take a selfie with the food, product, or gift card, and post to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #MUsupportslocal.  

Don’t know where to start? You may consider: 

For every time you tag yourself supporting a local business, your name will be entered into a giveaway* for a Marquette swag prize, to be drawn on December 18th, 2020. (Delivery cannot be guaranteed by Christmas.)  

Parents, students, alumni, and friends who are not on campus – you can participate, too! Many local businesses provide the opportunity to purchase gift cards from their websites. These make great stocking stuffers and will help support many of our local businesses during this difficult season.  

For questions, contact Jacki Black at
