The first ever Ice Cream Social kicked off the semester with a bang on August 29. Students enjoyed ice cream and snacks, and even played video games on the 28-screen TV wall in the AgriLife Center! Thanks to Blue Bell for generously donating the ice cream and thanks to College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Student Council for making the event possible!
