With midterms rolling in hot, take a breather with Cal Rotaract dressed in your Cal spirit gear!
We’ll be sure to liven up your week with beastly brain food, exciting event recaps and announcements of our upcoming hands-on Service Saturdays, new Historian Interns, Members of the Month AND Family of the Month. With just one month’s work, we are making mighty progress in reaching our goal of 1,000 service hours for this semester!
We will also be welcoming an incredible Rotarian guest speaker and of course, have a Monsters University student ID photobooth for y’all to capture the night!
*Protip: There will be a fun activity for our top survey responders to compete in winning a special prize. Filling out our event surveys is vital in voicing your thoughts and how we can better make Cal Rotaract your Home Away from Home 🙂
