On Wednesday, the brothers of YACHT took a well deserved Spring Break day to relax, unwind, and celebrate St. Patrick's day. A number of us got together and had a small barbecue that fully took place outside and within Covid-19 Regulations. An absolute awesome way to get outside and enjoy the outdoors a little.

Alumni: We are excited to announce that April 24th-25th has been designated as Alumni weekend. Please contact the me, the Alumni Chair, for more information.

As always, quote of the day "When you bite down on something you're actually biting up."
