Hey seniors! The US Aesthetic Committee is working on the banner that will hang in the senior lounge, as you may remember us talking about at Montreat. We need everyone to paint a symbol on the banner of something that represents you!

The banner will be in the commons from October 16th until the 23rd during lunch, as well as student choice on the 21st and 22nd. We need everybody to come and paint their symbol! If you do not show, we will write your name in your square for you. Thanks!
