STUDENT ANNOUNCEMENTS

To the Class of A11 from Caitlin McInerney and Michelle Kaye: - NEW

Please take a few minutes out of your busy lives to complete a brief commencement survey. We know that it seems very far away, but as your class reps we have a lot of planning to do around commencement. The sooner we can get some simple things knocked out, the better. We will give you until January 1st to complete this survey. Once the results are tallied, we will be looking for volunteers to take ownership over some of these commencement-related tasks.
