Woo week approaching

With Woo Week fast approaching, the Office of Residence Life offered opportunities for women to obtain VIP passes. All they had to do was make a trip to The Daily Brew, buy a cup of coffee for themselves and then pay it forward, by buying an additional cup for someone else.

The VIP passes include reserved seating at Woofest, as well as access to the VIP section at the pre-party. While it is now too late to snag a VIP pass for Woofest, women can still attend and can also participate in the Woo Week events.
