tsgHello fellow T-birds,

We hope your week is going well! The trimester has zipped past, and we’re approaching the final three weeks of Spring ’13.

During this past 9 weeks, you have brought to us 70 questions through our table at the Commons. From course packs and faculty feedback forms to why not a Ms. Thunderbird and the soap operas in the Commons, a range of questions have been asked! We want to thank you for speaking to us and bringing your concerns to the table so that we could address them and make minor and major changes through the various departments on our campus.

Please don’t miss out to vote for your favorite clubs and student leaders, and scroll down for a few updates:
