EGSA Feast

EGSA,

There’s something special about 14 February. The anticipation. The nervous excitement. The dinner. The subtle gestures. The treats. The prospects and potential. As Cupid draws his bow, we throw open our metaphorical arms to prospective students. Join us in the figurative embrace by attending any of the events listed in Sarah Clark’s message below:

Current Bears: Just a reminder about the opportunities for mingling with the prospies this weekend (and you don’t even have to click on the attachment this time). I know it’s V-Day, but dinner at La Fiesta would be an especially good time to talk to the prospective students. Also note the change to the Saturday afternoon options.
