Greetings!

 

My, where has the time gone? 

 

It seems like just yesterday I was returning to Frostburg, and now finals are just around the corner. Take the time to de-stress with one of the great events listed below. 

 

Might I recommend making your own poster at the Type-Truck's "Moveable Type" Exhibit, be empowered at the Oxfam Hunger Banquet, check out a Greek organization or (wait - I've saved the best for last,) attend Jose Porcel's "Gyspy Fire" a flamenca dance troupe you won't want to miss! Bring your friends to this HOT dance sensation! Student tickets are just $3. Sounds like a great date night to me!
