A new year is just around the corner

We hope you're excited for Fall 2015 as much as we are! Starting off the new school year, we're bringing a whole lot of new things to the table including an expanded board of officers, more ways to get involved, a new website, and a new project team devoted to getting EWB events the publicity they deserve.

Our first general meeting will be during the second week of Fall quarter (Oct. 5-9), so keep your schedules cleared. We'll be introducing many of the changes that have alluded to here, and many more. Don't forget to tell your friends - everyone is welcome to join EWB-UCSB!

Enjoy the rest of the summer and we'll see you all in Fall.
