March 25th – 10th Annual Crawfish Boil
The most exciting time of the year is upon us! Not March Madness, but the annual Geo-Sciences/BioSciences Crawfish Boil!! This event will take place on Friday March 25th (next week) at 5pm. This year will we be having tons of food, drinks, outdoor games, and even a water balloon fight, so it should be an all around good time!
See you there!

Geounion Monthly Dinner
Hope you all had a relaxing weekend.
I wanted to announce that our next Monthly dinner will be on Thursday the 7th of April at 6pm. I decided to hold off on one for this month because of the Crawfish boil which will be super amazing! Next month, we will be having Indian food at Shiva. Here is the website for it: http://www.shivarestaurant.com/ I hope that by giving the date well in advance, more people will be able to make it this time.
Please add your name to this list to let me know you can make it. So, I can plan to make reservations:
Join us on the 4th December for our last event of 2015 as we revel the end of a remarkable year!
Come for the food, drinks, and merrymarking!
