This Weekend On Campus...Brewers Edition

The Royal Wedding might be happening on the other side of the ocean, but this weekend is FOUNDER'S DAY, the biggest event ever. There will be carnival rides, games, outdoor film screenings, fireworks, concerts, local food vendors, and lots and lots of beer. It's the last weekend before classes end; let's raise our steins to Matthew Vassar for giving us this opportunity to party.

(P.S. Most people don't know this, but "Mads" is the Danish form of Matthew. Hence Mads Vassar.)
