A Munchie Bag is a reusable CIA tote* filled with TONS of goodies including snack foods, quick meals, and drinks! Students will receive an email Monday, April 29th, 2024 asking them to stop by Student Life and Housing to pick up a surprise package during finals week. The cost of a Munchie Bag is $40.
