MURA Interest Groups

Hiking Group

First organized in summer 2016, the MURA Hiking Group typically meets the second Tuesday of each month for a two-four mile morning walk. Trails at the Schlitz Audubon Center, Grant Park, Lapham Peak State Park, Pike Lake, and Lion's Den Gorge are amongst those that have been explored by the group. Contact Gail Waring (gail.waring@marquette.edu) if you'd like to join or if you have questions about this activity.

Lunch Group

Organized in the summer of 2017, the MURA lunch group meets on the third Wednesday of each month at different area restaurants. Contact Mary Kolar (mkolar0809@gmail.com) if you would like your name added to this group's mailing list.

Moving to Music

Organized in the fall of 2018, members get an uplifting, gentle workout to the rhythm of ballroom music. No partner is needed because you "groove" on your own by imitating MURA member Marisa Gatti-Taylor, who models simple dance steps. This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month in AMU. Contact Alex Kaleta (MURA Chair) if you would like to add your name to this group's mailing list.
