FIND


Hey everyone!

As we said last week, if your'e interested in participating in the the D7 Football Invitational, please try and attend Sports' weekly football practices. Jasmine and I will be sending you all more information regarding the logistics of the event soon, so be on the lookout for messages from us. For now, you can learn more about the event on it's Facebook event page.

Also, we're still looking for planning board members for this year's FIND National Conference--an event of Conference's magnitude requires the collective effort of many, so D7 E-board could really use your help!

That's all for now, OYFAm. Have a good week and stay warm!

Tell us a little about yourself!  Hey OYFA! I'm a first year in the E-school (which basically means I don't know the names of any of the academic buildings past Clark Hall). With that in mind, you'd most likely find me hanging out in the E-school buildings or taking advantage of unlimited first year swipes for ice cream. My favorite place to study is Rice, although every once in a while I'll explore a random building and study there once I get myself thoroughly lost. Anyways, I love getting to know new people so if I don't know you yet, feel free to say hi and chat with me for a bit. :D Shout out to my big Queen Camel, the royal Singkil family, and my class of first years! #oyfa2017

Favorite OYFA memory? Despite the rain, this year's Ski Trip would have to be my favorite so far. Yay for bonding!

Answers to the previous trivia questions: 
1. Winter Classic at Virginia Tech!
2. Kris Vocal
