KIC sends “Cougar Love” to UPITT and wish them all the best with the organization and orchestration in planning the NACURH 2013 conference.
KIC illustrated what student leadership, involvement and advocacy is truly all about and their positive spirits and attitudes have been contagious by connecting our residence hall students to the University community student life activities and programs. Hats off to KIC, YOU are our heroes!
