Blasters Golf Tournament a Success

Nearly $30,000 was raised during this year’s tournament.

We had a blast at the annual Blasters Golf Tournament last Friday. Thanks to all the alums and friends of the university who joined us at Blackwolf Run for a terrific day raising funds for Launch: Lakeland Student-Run Businesses.

Special congrats to the winning foursome of Lakeland grads Chris Thousand, Josh Henschel, Mitch Heinemeyer and Mike Ruzek!

Musko's Campus Shop Online Store Coming Soon!

Launch is excited to announce Musko’s Campus Shop online store is coming soon! Last year Launch was approached by the university to open a student-run campus shop, and by this summer, Launch will make that a reality. The goal of the new campus shop is to provide the Lakeland community with quality, Lakeland University-branded merchandise at approachable prices building LU pride, university connection, and Launch financial security. There is newly designed merchandise for every Muskie fan.

Also, make sure to watch out for the grand opening of the on-campus store set to open in August. The new store is a 1,000-square-foot shop located inside the Wehr Athletic Center main lobby featuring glass walls and mobile merchandise displays.

Follow our Facebook and Instagram pages to get the latest updates!

For more information or any questions, please email Musko’s Campus Shop at MuskosCampusShop@lakeland.edu.
