Imagine day

  • Success, over 850 signed up for mailing list, will see how well attended info night is...
  • Beneficial to be 'Health and Wellness' section? Though this may not be the most appropriate (none of the options are) it seems to have worked out very well as this is the first place people go when released from the pep rally. As a result the VOC table was swamped from 1-4pm
