AAS & AS Students, We are looking forward to hosting you at this special, informal event to celebrate the end of classes and to fortify ourselves for papers and exams. Please try and RSVP through the invitation you received earlier this week.
This has been a very difficult few weeks for all of us and hopefully, this will be a time to gather informally, decompress a bit, to share some time together talking about how to bring about CHANGE and healing.
