Is March almost done already? A lot happened this month; Reading week, Bob Ross Paint Night, Pints Lines and Polygons, Alumni Panel... and the month isn't over yet. We still have the elections and the year end party to wrap up. What a crazy month. Big thanks to everyone who came out to our events this month. As always, it is a pleasure spending time with friends and taking those well deserved breaks from study.
