Spring 2008 Begins!

Hello everybody! I hope you all had a great and relaxing Spring Break and are ready for this new exciting quarter. Kao is still fixing up an official HSA meeting time and it looks like Wednesdays from 8-10pm is popular right now.

At any rate, ISHE 2008 is still looking for fresh t-shirt designs. If you have one made, please contact Jenifer or Nancy. Scanning your pieces and emailing the design is also accepted. The color scheme for this year are the following:

T-Shirt color: hunter green
Color One: white
Color Two: lime green
Theme: “Believe it, Reach it, and Share it!”

We were inspired by a Sierra Mist bottle. 🙂
