Welcome Back Bash

The first week of the second semester is here, and no amount of syllabus overview, bad ties worn by professors, or girls in UGG boots can stop the Improv Club from laughing! Why not join us in the first open forum of the semester? BRNG 2280, 7-9 PM on Friday the 14 of January will be hopping.

Also, let it simmer in your head, the callout is looming. January 28 in (yet again) BRNG 2280 from 7-9 PM, bring your friends. Bring your enemies. Bring that weird smelly kid that lives on your floor you didn’t talk to all last semester. Everyone can enjoy a free show by the Ship of Fools followed by an hour of open forum.
