HDAE Highlights

December 14, 2018
Thanksgiving at the UCSB apartments was organized by our talented and caring Resident Assistants and the Graduate Student Apartment Community Council for residents of San Clemente Villages and Westgate (but no one was turned away regardless of where they live!) The organizers provided the main meal including a whole table of veggie options, while attendees brought sides and desserts and volunteered at the event. Many of our residents are international or out-of-state students who can't go home for the holidays. Kudos to our RAs and GSACC for stepping in to make sure everyone had a place to go. It was a very inclusive and community-driven event, with more than 100 residents attending!
