WUCO Family Feud Night – We would love to have at least one team that is comprised of solely professors/administration this year. So ask yourself, are you ready to “COME ON DOWN” to attend the second annual WUCO Family Feud Night?! No need to “BUY A VOWEL” to attend, just simply “PHONE A FRIEND” and sign up your three-five person team with the link below by Monday, January 2 at 5 PM. Don’t want to be on a team? That is ok. We are also looking to have 1-2 individuals be on the rules panel. They will be responsible for clearing up any “good answer” ambiguity. If that isn’t enough, we are also offering the opportunity to be a spectator. Please click on the appropriate link below to attend and show your support for all teams as they hope to win fabulous prizes with all of their “GOOD ANSWERS.” 5:30pm in HPC Amp II. Food will be provided to those who sign up.
