As part of our new name reveal, we will also be launching a new website. Our new site is designed to make it easier for you to find classes, dining menus, opportunities to get involved and much more.

We’ll let you know when our new site is live. But, don’t worry about missing out. Our current website will automatically redirect to our new one once we’re ready to launch.
