Dear future son or daughter…PACE program, 11/7

If given the chance, what would you say to your future son or daughter?
See what your fellow students said! Come to the PACE program on November 7 from 4-5pm in the Wood and Heritage rooms of the DUC.  We’ll look at the issue of peer pressure through an original movie, and discuss how peer pressure is seen in society today.

Freshmen will get a Character U PACE point! Hope to see you all there!
