How to Plan an Amazing Marathon Monday:
- First, make a plan! Determine with your friends and roommates what events you want to attend, and have a time and place to meet up should anyone get separated. Make sure to charge your phone too!
- Want to watch from a specific location? Make your brunch reservations and plan to arrive at your viewing location early to find a spot.
- Play by the rules. If you plan to host a gathering at your apartment, know social host laws, and prevent the spread of COVID – don’t go if you do not feel well. The Emerson Code of Community Standards still applies off campus!
