Monday is the new Friday at the e-Pulse. We've decided to shake things up a bit and, beginning today, we will be distributing the e-Pulse on Mondays instead of Fridays. Otherwise, we're still the same newsletter we've always been. Five quick stories from around the College delivered to you each week with a tip of the cap and a wink of the eye. Happy Monday!
