“Pug Parris is one of those people who makes you feel better. Some of it is Pug being Pug. And just knowing someone named Pug is worth a smile.”

We couldn’t agree more! Don’t miss Abilene Reporter-News’ article all about Pug! She just concluded her 42nd and final year at McMurry University. We will miss her greatly.

Make sure to comment below with a photo of your ZenTangle!

News from Psi Chi. For the last three years, McMurry Psi Chi organized De-stress activities in the Campus Center during the last week of classes. We were sad about not being able to do it this semester. However, our creative leader Sam Banks found a way to bring therapeutic art to everybody's homes! Sam made a beautiful video on how to make Zentangles. No expensive art supplies needed and anyone can do it. People were saying that making zentangles is oddly satisfying. Thank you, Sam, for finding a way to encourage creativity during these difficult times! Here is the link: https://youtu.be/ngMlSTQIFZ4
Make your own zentangles! De-stress lives on!
