What's on TV?
There will be something new this semester on those TV monitors in the hallway at the Bell Building. In addition to the material about goings-on at the main RVC campus, we'll be adding photos and information about CLR classes, events, and trips. In February, watch for historic photos from the past 20 years in celebration of CLR's 20thanniversary. Be sure to take a look next time you're in the building!
