“SPREAD THE LOVE”

 

In recognizing the difficult financial moment we find ourselves in as an academic community, as well as the budgetary cuts facing many programs, we encourage teams who have recently seen significant budget reductions (or those which are student-run programs) to reach out so that we might find a way to make competition for all students at this swing possible.
