Ice Cream Social 2 – come out for ice cream and enjoy the last bit of sunlight and friendship before everyone goes into full hibernation for finals!

MSA Spring 2017 E-Board elections will be taking place primarily during the ice cream social. All ballots will be held in person. If you absolutely cannot make it to the event, please contact Br Farhan Husain or Sis Zahra Asghar.
