We invite all the student body to participate in this day of fun and winning.

Faculty members, Research Assistants and Graduates are invited to attend workshops offered by visiting speakers in the Antoun Ghattas Karam e-classroom in Jafet.

Below is the full schedule, along with the designated gifts and location of the games, in addition to the e-classroom’s full schedule.

You are invited to meet us at 9:30 am at Jafet’s main entrance to join us in a memorable group photo on the Green Oval. This will only take 30 minutes of your time, but will be a memory and a team building exercise to remember forever.
