Welcoming Students Back: LEAP’s Ice Cream Social

Each semester, the LEAP Ambassadors invite students, faculty, and staff from across the University to enjoy some ice-cream, snacks, and refreshments with us near the beginning of the semester.  It’s a good opportunity to get into the swing of things, while also publicizing some of our upcoming events and activities.

The spring is always a little slower going than the fall, but we still had about 50 students show up for snacks,

and prizes.

This event is always a partnership with the Pre-Law Society, and this semester was no different, with some Pre-Law Society members on hand to assist.

This capable team gave us the opportunity to publicize and recruit for our upcoming events which, like every semester, is extensive.
