Bump the Mumps Event Takes Place Tuesday on the Quad

Hot chocolate will be served, and a number of Bump the Mumps promotional items will be available to students including T-shirts, Bump the Mumps plastic cups and stickers indicating students have signed the Bump the Mumps pledge.
Supplies are limited and the event is scheduled to take place from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The event is being organized by public relations and marketing students at the Newhouse School, Student Association and Health Service interns from Falk College.
