Social Event – May 21
We will have a luau at the Boathouse. The time is still not set. It is for all staff to have a fun time together.

Responding to questions and requests from online anonymous
We would like a place for faculty/staff to eat, meet, and relax aside from student locations.  There is no place like this at time time. Dr. Wyatt is aware of this and said there may be plans for this in the future with the relocation of offices.
