Serious and casual runners alike took advantage of the sunny weekend to join the Stride for Aggie Pride 5K Sunday (April 29). They ran or walked a new route that started at the Memorial Union, circled the campus and led through the arboretum before ending back at the MU.
One of the first-time runners was LeShelle May, wife of Chancellor Gary S. May. She joined Fire Chief Nate Trauernicht and about 2,000 others, who in all raised roughly $30,000 for We Are Aggie Pride, supporting students in need, and the ASUCD Awards Endowment.
We took our daughters and sons to work
About a week after Picnic Day, a smaller version of the event happens for smaller Aggies: Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day gives campus departments the chance to showcase their work for the children of faculty, staff and students.

The Manetti Shrem's got talent
Think you can dance? The staff at the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art know they can. A video they made for an international "dance-off" has bested a group of other museums, and they're asking for your help in the second round of voting Friday (May 4). The vote will take place on the website When You Work At a Museum, and Manetti Shrem staff will send a reminder to vote to those who RSVP to a Facebook event.
