Volunteers Needed for Program Gophers and Move Out

Do you have some time to spare and want to fill it? Stop by Program Ops in Columbian and offer to help be a Gopher. Grab a blank volunteer slip from the desk downstairs from Columbian to record your hours and get some free stuff!

If you have some time on Tuesday, September 6th, we could use some help unloading the art show grid into a couple of different storage units in different parts of town. Please email if you can lend a hand, likely from about 9am – 4pm.

Gaming Area

Looking for a place to play some games? Visit the Gaming Area, located on the Third (3rd) floor of the West Tower. We have lots of games you can borrow, space for pick up games, and a number of scheduled games throughout the weekend. More details are available in the online program at
