Friday, September 20-Sunday, September 22
Every year, Lambda escapes from the non-stop hecticness of HLS to go to Provincetown: the Fire Island equivalent of Boston/Massachusetts. It’s a great time where we can hang out at a bed and breakfast, check out the stores, and read on the patio. As a 2L/3L, it’s an expenses-paid get-out-of-Cambridge weekend with other Lambda members, and for 1Ls, it’s a great opportunity to get out of Cambridge, hang out with other 1Ls, and get to know the upperclassmen better.
We expect to leave Friday 9/20 at around 4 p.m., and get back that Sunday, 9/22, at around 4 as well. Sign up here!
