Assassin – The Hunger Games

   
Date? Begins Monday, February 27th
Time? NOON
Where? MIAD
How Much? FREE
The details… Did you enjoy Humans vs. Zombies? Are you interested in participating in another campus-wide game? Assassin is a more focused game, where you will be responsible for hunting down and tagging one person. You will receive an envelope that contains a note card with a person’s name written on it. The envelope will be waiting for you in your MIAD mailbox (located in the cafeteria, by the financial aid office). Once you know who your first victim is, you must find the person and “tag” them the same way you did during Humans vs. Zombies. The victim must then give you their envelope, and you will then move on to your next victim. Continue until you are the LAST assassin standing:)…This game is in anticipation of The Hunger Games Premier!…In order to participate you MUST sign up by emailing Anne Morningsta r…All willing participants must contact Anne before this Sunday, February 26th.

MIAD Mini-Mart Grand Opening

   
The details… A new concept in vending will open in the MIAD Cafe on Monday, 2/27. A self-service convenience store called the Main Street Mini-Mart will be open any time the Academic Building is open.

Because vending machines are not being used food items are not limited by what a vending machine can dispense. The Mini-Mart will open with a full array of items you would expect to find in a convenience store. All the customer needs to do is select the items you desire, scan them at the self-service check-out kiosk, pay at the kiosk, and leave with your items. Don’t forget the pay part because the mini-mart will be monitored by security cameras 24/7.

MIAD is one of the first places this concept has been installed and we believe the service will fit the needs of our students far better than vending machines. For those who require a soda fix late in the evening, one soda machine has been installed in the vending area on the 2nd floor. Thank Jason Harter if you like the soda machine, it was his “suggestion”!
