Attending SOTA's College Center Events

SOTA's college center has great representatives from a variety of universities coming to campus. These events are open to Academy students as well, but you must get permission from the teacher you have after lunch to attend the event. Because our lunch times don't exactly match up, you would be late to your class after lunch.
