Each year kicks off with a hot sausage and a warm welcome to all new students and staff at the annual SOFI BBQ. Various events follow throughout the year from DVD and trivia nights to career forums and symposiums. The social highlight of the year, the student retreat, is a great way to form new friendships as well as learn about other student's work and even take home a few ideas for your own project.
