News & Notes

Camas Neville, originally from Idaho and Maggie Blandford of Colorado, completed a four month internship at the Ecole du Domaine du Possible where they taught horsemanship classes. Ecole du Domaine du Possible is an alternative school that teaches 150 students grades K-12 using the Waldorf method.

The UMW Fine Arts Gallery will display the work of Missoula based artist, Jennifer Reifsneider, Feb. 19-March 29, 2019. Accompanying the exhibit will be an artist’s lecture on March 28 from 5-6 p.m. in Main Hall 319 followed by a closing reception at 7 p.m. in the Corr Gallery.

With 40 seconds remaining in the game, Freed-Hardeman (FHU) held a six point lead and looked like they were going to return to their second straight national championship game. The Bulldogs and the large crowd in red and black seemed almost stunned that UMW's impressive season was about to end.
