Wednesday Walks Shift Location
Staff Assembly’s regular meeting place for its Wednesday Walks has ambled over to the track near Rob Gym; as of April 6, walkers no longer gather in front of the Women’s Center. Some aspects of the walks remain the same, however. “We will continue to give away a $10 gift certificate to the UCSB Bookstore each week,” said organizer Martha Olsen.
