Cold craft beers, refreshments and snacks await. To perform, or book a slot for your "act", please blitz the Graduate Student Activities Coordinator, Preetha Sebastian. Also contact Preetha for sound, or instrument-related questions. Alternatively sign up at the door, but signing up ahead of time is preferred to make time for everyone.
