Please see below for this week’s announcements:

The Undergraduate Program Office will be hosting a food drive for the U-ACCESS Food Pantry starting 9/26/16 and culminating at the MOST Conference on 10/1/16. 9/30/16 will be the last day to donate food in the Undergraduate Program Office. The purpose of the U-ACCESS Food Pantry is to supplement the food supply for any UMass Boston students who may be experiencing hunger and struggling to buy food.

If you are a student who has utilized U-ACCESS, you will gain access to the MAP mile via the U-ACCESS office in a confidential manner.
