The Cardinal Corner is open for business

The Cardinal Corner is a non-profit retail store located in the lower level of the Toner Student Center. Managed by the students of MG315 Entrepreneurship and supported by the School of Business, the mission of the store is to create an opportunity for entrepreneurship students to gain hands-on experience in operating a small business. Each semester, the class donates profits from the Cardinal Corner to a charity of their choice.

In addition, the store sells products for various SMU clubs, teams, departments, and organizations and returns 100 percent of the sales to benefit the SMU community.

This semester, all non-club related profits will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the largest health agency devoted to blood cancers. They supply funding for cancer research all around the world, and provide free information for support services. Their mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life for patients and families.

New items added this semester include:
• SMU MUTTS Frisbees and shirts
• Winona Knits and Mitts mittens
• Trendy and affordable neon sunglasses
• Cardinal Pride athletic shorts - with pockets!
• A Brother Stephen shirt - coming soon! (You’ll love the design and quote!)
