Welcome to The Link


Evolution of a tradition

In the Fall of 2014, we moved The Link to an electronic format and made in January 2015 we began using MailChimp to create and distribute The Link as an email newsletter. As a result, some editions are stored on this website, while more recent ones are maintained on through a different platform.

The online membership transfer system developed by MAPS, the MSU, and representatives from Student Accounts and Cashiers, Student Accessibility Services, and the Registrar's office resulted in significant improvements in processing time for membership transfers. Stakeholders will be reviewing the results over the next few months to see if further improvements can be made.
