PLEASE STICK WITH US!
This is your inSIDER. It is prepared each week for the Division of Student Affairs by the Centennial Student Union. Most of the news and videos found within this e-newsletter is written by student staff within the CSU Office of Communications. The intent is to provide for-student, by-student information on college life at Minnesota State Mankato. Many of our blog posts are personal perspectives from students who have "been there, done that." Our bi-weekly Serendipitous Moments video series will preview in the inSIDER; each highlights various areas of campus. Links to the newsletter will also be posted in the CSU social media. You always have the option to unsubscribe, but please stay with us and watch for your weekly installment through your email. We're excited to have you as our fellow newest Mavericks! If you have a story idea or question, email csuinfo@mnsu.edu.
