Students play ultimate on the Quad 4.16.2012

Tips from the A-Team

 

Participate in A-Week and Service Week activities!

This week offers several opportunities to get out and enjoy the tradition of A-Week.  A-Week originally started as a week of service where current students did landscape work and cleaned up campus.  Over the years the tradition has maintained its focus on service, and has evolved to include several student activities. This year, A-Week and Service Week have combined for one awesome week!

 

Club Membership is $15 per semester ($10 if you were a member in fall semester), and includes the 2011-2012 Club T Shirt.
