FrIDeATe, October 7th

Next FrIDeATe is October 7

Another FrIDeATe is heading our way on October 7, 4:45-5:45ish in the IDeATe Fabrication Space (HL A5). We took note of the inadequate number of burritos last time and will be providing more, because we take your burrito needs very seriously. We are also scheduled to view the design submissions for this year's t-shirts but, uh, we've only received one design so far. Let's get a few more in there!
