Cocktails on the Terrace featuring Panther Spirits on Thursday, August 6
Join us on Thursday, August 6th from 4-6:00 pm for a great evening. Meet Carson Panther from Panther Distillery, the first legal whiskey distillery in Minnesota since the end of prohibition in 1933. You will sample a flight of spirits from Panther and hear their story. Then, you'll choose a signature cocktail designed by the Campus Club bar mixologists, made especially for this event. Appetizers from the creative mind of Chef Beth Jones are included!

The price is $10 for members and $15 for nonmenbers. Space is limited so sign up now.

It's OK to Book More Than a Year Out!
We have had a busy month at the Campus Club and apologize to those of you who tried to book events on days that we were already all filled. As most of you know, we book events on a first-come, first-served basis so many rooms for April and May were booked many months ago.

You are welcome to book with us for your end-of-semester, staff recognition, and any other annual events at any time. More than a year away is just fine! Contact the Campus Club Events Office at or 612-615-1967.

Meet Our New Members
A warm welcome to Campus Club members who have joined in the last few weeks. We look forward to seeing you around the Club.
