Welcome Back IMSD/NEAGEP/PREP Dinner

We would like to officially welcome everyone back for the 2014-2015 academic year! We hope that everyone was able to have a good summer and at least have a little bit of a break. The turn out for our most recent dinner was amazing. Over 40 students and faculty came to reconnect and meet all of the new students that we accepted into our program. Dinner was phenomenal with it's Puerto Rican flair. Between the pork, and rice, and flan, there was something for everyone to enjoy.
