Upcoming Events and Announcements

Bubble Tea Hour
Wednesday, September 7th | 5-6:30PM | LaTea Bubble Tea Lounge
As an alternative to happy hours, we occasionally have an early evening bubble tea hour at my favorite bubble tea place. I'll make sure to bring some sort of sign so you can spot me if you've never met me before. Take a break from research (even if the semester only just got started)!
