Social Groups

The VSA is starting something new!  We want scholars to have another social outlet so we are starting SOCIAL GROUPS  This gives you an opportunity to be with friends and make some new friends over an activity that you enjoy doing.  The groups meet 4 to 5 times during the quarter.  Next quarter you can sign up for a new group. (groups fill quickly)
 
Sign up for only one group.  You may put your name on the wait list for other groups. These are not drop in groups. To keep the unity of the group, we ask that you go to all 4 or 5 of the group times.
