Fresh Start Fridays is an ongoing series focused on promoting the overall health and wellness of law students. Look for Yoga to be added in the spring. Treat yourself this Friday and every Friday as you end your week and re-organize for the following week.
Although no appointment is needed, students may stop by the Washer Lounge to sign-up for a time in advance. The sign-up sheet is posted on the door.
Starts this Friday, September 14!
