The Bark Newsletter

Introducing The Bark, our weekly e-newsletter exclusively for the Marymount community. While traditionally serving as a brief overview of upcoming events, we have decided to bring you something different—a newsletter with more comprehensive details. In each edition, we will keep you informed about the exciting events and happenings taking place on campus throughout the semester.

The Bark, delivered to every Marymount email address, is now your go-to resource for discovering events, activities, and opportunities happening on campus for the current week. Look forward to receiving your weekly dose of campus excitement every Monday morning during the fall and spring semester.

One way you can contribute is by submitting articles and columns for publication in The Bark. We welcome submissions from all members of the Marymount community, including faculty, staff, and students. Your contributions can help inform, educate, and entertain our readers, and help to promote events and activities happening on campus.
