Alumni Trivia: August 2017
Soon the bookstore will be filled with eager undergrads picking up textbooks for a new school year. Do you know where the bookstore was located before it moved to the science building? Let us know!
The answer to our last question ("At which event did the UMM Men's Choir perform in June of 1964?") is "the New York World's Fair," where they sang "The UMM Hymn." Congratulations to Eva Dockter Kathmann '92, winner of the June Alumni Trivia challenge, and thanks to all who played. Be sure to keep those answers and memories coming our way!
