Welcome Back BBQ (Fall):

Qualifying Year Housewarming Wine and Cheese (September 2017):
As an integrative initiative, POTUS organizes a wine and cheese at the beginning of the school year to welcome the first year masters students coming from other undergraduate programs. This is an opportunity for these students to mingle and meet their new peers joining them in the qualifying year from the OTPT undergraduate program.
Graffiti Party (November):
