Introducing... GPSC's first FIELD DAY!
Convivial Cohort,
GPSC is welcoming the arrival of spring weather with its first ever BBQ and Field Day! We scoff at memories of the Polar Vortex! I've packed up my sweaters for another year, I'm ready for some lawn sports and some tofu pups (that's veggie hot dogs for the uninitiated)! [Don't worry, there will be real meat BBQ items too]. Celebrate the home stretch of this semester (LDOC is just around the corner).

Also on deck this week, Sit down for lunch with President Brodhead, RSVP to see a FREE screening of the amazing film Girl Rising, and don't miss out on the Law & Economics Conference... the Keynote Address and All Day Conference are both FREE and feature Receptions with the eminent scholars.

VIVA SPRING!
