February News and Upcoming Events

We hope everyone is enjoying the slightly milder weather and the bit more daylight every afternoon.

February is the shortest month of the year, but that’s not preventing us from packing it full with some great events over the next few weeks. A happy hour, a poetry reading, and a lecture with a visiting professor on Japanese art (all listed below).

We closed out January with our first Open Board meeting of 2019. We’re excited to welcome our new team of volunteers and members taking on a more active role. We’re sure with their help, this will be one of the best years yet for the club. In the short term, if any ARC member or CC / SEAS alum is available to do interviews on campus at Eton this Saturday, February 9th, please reach out to Helene directly to help out, [email protected].

Make sure you book for our events on the website and be follow us on Facebook and Instagram for new announcements.

Please also keep in touch. Reach out at [email protected] if you need anything.
