Cameo Blogger

This week’s cameo blogger is Mavis L.!  Mavis transferred to Notre Dame this year and I am so glad she did! She has been an integral part of our Sports Medicine course and brings such a positive energy to our class.  Mavis’ genuine interest in the course is evident and it also shows through the work she produces (she’s a claymation master by the way!). Please check out her overview of our class last week and feel free to comment on her website!
