Student Connection 03.27.14
Welcome back! This is an exciting time of the year for us, filled with more events than any one person can possibly attend. Fortunately, each of you and our faculty provide excellent leadership and represent us well on campus, in our professional societies and beyond. I hope you enjoy the many opportunities presented in the coming weeks.
Please don't be overwhelmed by the volume of information in this Student Connection and those to come--skim for information of interest, celebrate our accomplishments and make note of important events. And, please, let our great LARCP staff know if our office can be of assistance as we all work to finish the semester strong.
Watch for a college announcement about a workshop related to building a land harp on campus, Friday, Apr 4, 12:30-2:30 pm. There will be space available for 10 music students and 10 APDesign students.
