UMSL Staff Had a Field Day!

A field day was had by all who attended the Staff Association Field Day, Thursday, October 11th on the UMSL Recreation and Wellness Center’s lawn.  Staff members enjoyed pumpkin decorating, a water balloon toss, home run derby, chair yoga, and a pound class, among other activities. Also, three departments tied for having the most employees attend within their department:

Executive Events
Graduate School
New Student Programs

Congratulations to the participation winners!
