Competing against 15 other groups from around the world, many 10 years their senior, Unit Three, secured the title of Best Band in the Competition.

Holiday Safety

Building Temperature Change Over Holiday Break

Please be aware that from Saturday, December 22 through January 2, the internal heating system will be turned down throughout all buildings on campus in an effort to conserve energy. If you are intending to work on campus throughout this time, please be prepared for a significant temperature change during this time. When heating is restored on January 2, it may take up to two days for the building temperature to return to regular settings, so please plan accordingly.
