You’ll Enjoy These Campus Events, Rain or Shine (or Snow)

It’s that time of year in Colorado—one day it’s 68 degrees and sunny, the next day you’re ice-skating across campus in a parka. But while the weather may be inconsistent, there’s always a steady schedule of events happening at RMCAD. Here are just a few things to look out for in the coming weeks.
