Kick Off The Spring Semester With These Welcome Week Events

Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back in the swing of things to start the spring semester off right. Welcome Month Week events run from Saturday, January 5 to Tuesday, February 5. All of the events are free to attend and there are plenty of opportunities for free food if you’re somehow already afraid you’ll run out of meal points.

Happy Valley Improv
