SA&FS Upcoming EventsSo Far!

We have a few goals for SA&FS for this year: 1) to provide a bridge between students and advisor in an informal setting, 2) to provide low pressure spaces to engage in the SA&FS community, 3) to talk about issues that should be discussed but aren't usually given the space to do so, 4) to collaborate more, to bring more voices and more perspective to the conversation, and 5) to provide more community support.
