Front and Center

Summer Green Street Cleaning
June 25 | 9:30-10:30am | Green Street
Every season, SWE and GradSWE take it upon ourselves to keep Green Street clean; it's a small service, but provides a big give back to the community. If you're here over the summer and feel like joining us, please sign up using this form. For now, the date is Sunday, June 25th. We will meet at 9:30am to avoid the heat, clean for about an hour, then go to LaTea afterwards. Hope to see you there!
