Social Programs Recreation Sustainability

Social Programs

Events are in most cases organized by the students of Cascade ASPCC's Programming Board. We organize social programs, diversity programs and community service programs. Next to the events we do every year, we also organize and host a slew of other activities from bowling to college bowl. Have an idea for an event? Contact the ASPCC Cascade Team, and we can see if we can make it happen!
