D1 Conference at Bryant University

On April 12, members of SAA traveled to Smithfield, RI for the annual CASE ASAP District 1 Conference. For two days, students from colleges all over New England came together at Bryant University to share ideas and learn from one another.

Friday night kicked off the Mardi Gras-themed weekend with cajun food, acrobats, and games.
