Time to Break the Ice

GGU Social Welcome Party DS

We hope the Fall ’16 term are treating all of our readers well. This term is the most exciting of all, because it is the most crowded term of the year for Golden Gate University. Not only do we have students returning from their sunny vacations, but we also have the new students who just started their brand new journeys here at Golden Gate University.

In hopes of bringing the new and returning students of our community together, we put together a welcoming party and we would like to see all of our readers there! Stop by our Welcome Party anytime between 6:00PM and 8:00PM tomorrow and join us in greeting the new students. This will also give all of the participants a chance to meet and chat with all of this year’s SGA candidates who will be joining us tomorrow.

During tomorrow’s event, will also announce the winner(s) of our month-long treasure hunt and award their prizes, and discuss our future activities (gaming tournaments, hikes, etc.) Those who have collected the puzzle pieces during the contest are required to turn them in during the party to claim their prizes!
