The final issue of the print Record, which came out today, was too full to give voice to everything happening at Goshen College. Here are a few other events and celebrations to be aware of between now and the end of the academic year in May:
April 17: Advocates awareness event at 10:30 a.m. in Shrock Plaza (rain location is Union lobby)
