And…..discover what it’s like to hangout on a beautiful college campus, live in a dorm, enjoy delicious food offered at the campus dining hall, participate in evening enrichment activities……all with your current and future BDPA friends from the Twin Cities and Rochester chapters. What an awesome week!
