Dr. Matt Rush will return to campus this Friday, April 24th.  We know that many of you would love to see him, and we have several opportunities for you to do so.  On Thursday evening, he will attend the games here at school in the early afternoon and in the evening, with some time off campus for dinner.  On Friday, he will be in the US Library Annex during your lunch period starting at 11:15.  Lunch will be provided for any student who wishes to visit with Dr. Rush during that time.  Finally, if you have a drop or a free period, feel free to join us for the Rush Zone Dedication ceremony from 1:45 – 2:15 in the bus circle.  I’m sure he will enjoy catching up with his former students!
