Last month (a couple of days ago actually) CASP welcomed its 2019 Cohort at CASP 101 and we had a blast!

We are so happy we got the opportunity to meet you all and hope to see you around during the academic year. 

We have included important dates for the Fall Quarter, information regarding our EDS course, a save-the-date for our CASP Academic Year Kickoff, and many more opportunities.Make sure to read through our entire newsletter for an opportunity to win CASP swag.
