The LEAP Ambassadors teamed up with the Pre-Law Society to host a “Back-to-School” Social yesterday, with some fun results.
Each semester LEAP And PLS join forces to welcome students back to campus, where they have a chance to enjoy snacks…
…socialize with others…
win prizes, and learn about upcoming events.
It’s also timed to lead-in to our Wednesday night Pre-Law Society meetings, so people can come to the social, then stick around for the PLS’s first meeting of the semester.
About 45 students dropped by over the 1.5 hour, come-and-go event, and they took with them prizes such as calculators, phone chargers, a “back-to-school pack” and other helpful supplies.
The students also had a chance to learn about our upcoming activities, such as our upcoming Mock Law Class, Ambassador Chase Untermeyer presentation, Ambassador Christopher Hill presentation, and much more…
Thanks to everyone who came out, and we hope we’ll see you again at this semester’s events!
