Greek Year Students: we are considering adding a Greek year class at 9AM PST/Noon EST on Fridays. Please email us if you would prefer that class time. However, we may not add it, so we encourage you to sign up for the Greek year in whatever classes remain open, so that you reserve a spot then, in case we do not add the Friday Greek class. Thank you.
