Hope everyone is getting off to a great start to a new semester.  We are excited about the new academic year and all the activities that MANS has planned.  We will start our new year with a kickoff meeting on Wednesday, September 9th at 4:00.  We hope to see all members at this meeting as we will be discussing the upcoming activities, talking about study skills and the KANS conference.  Also, please remember to check the MANS board outside of the classroom and the MANS website as well periodically for additional club information.
