Hope you all had a great weekend! Just a quick reminder and update on our secret Santa party for tomorrow. The location will be SEB 122, and we will be starting at 12:15pm (instead of 12pm, to give us enough time to prepare). If you are participating, and have not gotten the gifts yet, then be a good Santa and get on it! Also, we will be serving lunch to our hungry Santas as well!
