Spring 2022 Meetings and Events

This semester, the club will meet on Thursdays at 4:00 pm; meetings are weekly until UMass spring break and biweekly thereafter. We will be having a hybrid format for some meetings this semester, with meetings typically held in Fernald Hall room 201 (the Alexander Conference Room) and sometimes simultaneously on Zoom.
