PSWC Registration Information

Hey Guys!!

I unfortunately have the honor of welcoming you back to Spring 2017. I hope everyone had a great break and was able to bury the personal-demons-that-will-inevitably-climb-their-way-back-into-your-life-during-midterms-and-finals-over-the-next-16-weeks-of-horror-and-self-loathing deep down over the past three weeks.

Anyway, just 2 important notes here:

1. We will be having the FINAL PSWC info session (which attendance to is required if you want to attend PSWC) next Thursday evening, Jan. 19th. Please attend this if you are interested in attending PSWC, want to learn more, or want to submit your payments (though you don't have to submit payments in person). Location and exact time TBA in a later email.

2. Good news! We have extended the 2nd deadline for PSWC registration to FRIDAY, JAN 20TH (the day after the info session). This is the last day to qualify for the $120 price for PSWC. We know it seems like a lot but I promise you, you are getting so much bang for your buck. This covers lodging, most food, registration, and much more. 

3. The last deadline to register is Monday, JAN 30 TH, and the cost will be $130.
