Interest groups are a vital part of the BSU Women's Club. Members may join as many groups as they like. It's a great opportunity to meet women who share your interests.
Contact Kim Caristi at firstname.lastname@example.org or 765-729-0396 to join an interest group or to start a new group!
NOTE: Annual dues must be paid to participate in these interest groups.
