*This year, we want to encourage everyone (students, faculty and staff) to share their heritage by wearing the national dress of the country your family is from or have an affinity for. We want to give you plenty of notice to retrieve that special outfit out of storage. National Dress Day will be on Tuesday, March 20. Everyone who wears his or her cultural dress will get prizes, and we will have a group photo on the Bridge.
