Happy Week Five!

If your midterms are getting you down, some great pick-me-ups are: petting kittens or puppies, playing mini-golf (it’s like golf, but fun), and as always, looking over the great opportunities the College of Public Health and Human Sciences is offering this week. Remember, the term is already almost half way over…you are doing great!
