“What is STWing?” Discussion (03/16/2019, 5p)

It’s obvious that STWing will be going through some pretty drastic changes next year with the creation of SPrInG and the lack of on-floor upperclassmen. However, we remain optimistic, because STWing is the best residential program in the world! Please come out to discuss any ideas you have to keep STWing as strong as ever, any concerns you have about how the structure of STWing is changing, and/or the things you love most about KC2. Hope to see you there!

Come out to the Class of 1938 Lounge to vote on by-law revisions (so be sure to go over these before-hand!), as well as updates from all the Continuum members. So, if you haven’t joined a subcommittee yet, no fear! You’ll have another opportunity at this meeting, so come with an open mind!

2019-2020 Housing Meeting (01/28/2019)
