February 15th marked the first College of Science (COS) House Party, where clubs and organizations gathered in the Tracy Hall Atrium to recruit members, compete in fun games, and eat lots of donuts! Over 100 students signed up for clubs and over 400 students participated in the event! Congratulations to 1st place winner, Scientista Chapter! They won $200 for their organization and lunch with the COS Dean, Dr. Andrea Easter-Pilcher. The Pre-med Club took 2nd place and received $150, and the Multicultural Advancement in Science (MAS) Club took 3rd place and also received $150. Kudos to all who participated in this fun event!
