While walking to class, José had a thought
Soon was the day, he dreaded a lot
Finals were coming, he had just one shot
He opened his books & didn’t know squat
He had to study all night, all he was taught
On an empty stomach, study he could not!
In Hub Room 2, he had forgot
Sat Bagel Sandwiches, all fresh and hot!
Come study with us and @gmu.lunars as we host a late night study brunch!!! Finals are coming 👀 #SeSiente #gmuPhiotas

“Men are like the stars; some generate their own light while others reflect the brilliance they receive.” –Don José Martí

It is with a heavy heart that we cross our brother Don Firme to the eternal Omega Chapter of our illustrious fraternity. Juan “Firme” Adon was a quiet star that brought joy to everyone he met. He had the gift of helping others find their own brilliance through stern attentive love. Firme leaves behind a wife, Yessenia, and three beautiful children, Audrey, Emely, and Ian.
