2015 Fall Program

2015 UW Tacoma KeyBank PDC Fall ScheduleRemember when books were something you had to balance in your hands?

Remember turning the pages by hand, making notes in the margins, spilling your morning coffee on it?  Our staff are about half and half on whether we like an online version or a printed version of the schedule.  So we are doing both! We just sent our fall schedule to the print shop so if you are on our mailing list, you should see something in your mailbox in a few days.  This PDF version works online and in print.
