Read the emails. Read the websites. Read our power points. Come to Town Meetings. Talk to your peers and to upper class members.

Your class reps will meet with the Vice Dean once a month to discuss issues that are important to you.

We can’t be responsive to your needs unless you communicate what they are to us.
