Week 5- TSG Bulletin

Dear T-birds,

The beauty of this campus is the people that live, study, work, and party in it. I always tell people that Thunderbirds are the best conversationalists I have ever met. This amazing dynamic to openly socialize with people of different backgrounds allows for the close, tight-knit relationships we share. And we look out for each other because we care about each other. We also know that repercussions could potentially follow any faulty action for the rest of our lives and careers.

So be safe, responsible, and courteous while you live, study, work, and party on (and off) campus.
