First Blog Contest: Name That Professional!

Our first contest will be taking place today until Friday, March 19th. The first person to correctly identify 15 professionals from the 20 hints below will receive complimentary CPR/First-Aid training courtesy of Senior Seminar. The training will take place on Friday March 19th from 4:30-7:30 and Saturday March 20th from 1:30-4:30. Both sessions are in Alter Hall 031 and you only need to attend one of the sessions in order to be certified.
