Gustie Grillout in the Arb

Tomorrow

Celebrate the last day of classes with a Grillout for Gusties in the Arb. We will have yard games, music, a bonfire with s'mores, and food. Burgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, chips, and drinks will all be provided for free. (The food goes fast, so come sooner rather than later.) The new Arb Garb T-shrits will also be on sale for $10 during the Grillout. We would love to see you there.
