April 24- 29 will be a week-long celebration of

student achievements in academics and the arts.

 

We will keep our tradition of suspended classes on Tuesday (April 25) to allow for assessment activities

and the  Student Undergraduate Research Forum (SURF)

 

But from 2006 onward,

the program will include  six days  of

  art exhibitions

                             plays,

                                                a film festival,

                                                                 dance performances

                                                                                                     music performances

 

 and much more -- all of which is student work!!

 

Look for a full schedule of events in your campus mailbox when you return from Easter Holiday.

 

Make plans now to be part of this week long celebration of both academic and art presentations. You don’t want to miss it. Celebrate!
