Planning Committee

Our picnic could not happen with the creativity, dedication and hard work of our picnic committee and the support of several departments on campus.   The picnic is planned, executed and staffed by a committee of volunteers from various areas across campus. Many thanks to each and every one of our committee members for their service at this event!
