Make Progress on Your Future AND Win a Free Beverage

Interested in a FREE cup of coffee, hot chocolate, or other beverage from the MAC Hall Coffee Cart during finals week? (Bonus: You probably also get to see the wonderful Marie, who operates the cart.)  All you need to do is click on the link below, enter your name and email, and check boxes next to two things you will plan to do this summer to help prepare you for your future career or grad school plans. You’ll then be entered into our drawing for a free beverage from Dr. Vespia during finals week. And, no, we won’t make you write a “what I did on my summer vacation” report on them. That’s right, Dr. Vespia is willing to pay to encourage you think about your future this summer. Make her do it – enter now!!
