We are excited to share that our new fitness center will officially open tomorrow! In dedication to the late Faith Small, it will be named the “Faith Small Fitness Center.” Faith devotedly served on the SAU Board of Trustees from 1984 up until she passed away at 94 on June 26, 2016. She also played a significant role in SAU’s athletics for many years.

This space will be available not only to students, but to staff, faculty, alumni and community members! We are offering a special Arena Club Membership opportunity for alumni. For hours of operation, membership rates and more, visit arbor.givingfuel.com/arena-club.

The March issue of The Pulse came out on Friday, which means it's time to start wrapping up the end of the year!

If you're curious to see how The Pulse produces an issue from start to finish, join us in the Library basement tonight at 5pm (with pizza!) to talk to current writers and designers about what it's like to be a part of our team. If working with us sounds interesting to you, we would love to have you join us for these next few weeks as we put together our Senior issue. There's no need for experience, we'll teach you everything you need to know!

Hope to see you there!

Spring Arbor Community,
It has come to our attention that our article “The Future of Muffitt and Ormston” on page 8 of this month’s issue consistently misspelled “Muffitt” as “Muffit.” The error was overlooked in our production sessions and was printed with the errors. We apologize for our mistake, and will be correcting the online version of the article.
Thank you to the individuals who alerted us to the issue.

The next issue of The Pulse drops in 27 days, which means winter holidays!

Did you celebrate a tradition you can trace back through generations? Did your family do something no one else you knew did? Did you grow up in a family that didn't celebrate Christmas? We'd like to know about it!

If you have something you'd like to share about your holiday traditions, send us a message with a brief description, and you could be a part of a feature story in our December issue!
