You are not only a representative for CNR but you get to talk to many other undergrads and get to go to events and do outreach to recruit more people into CNR. Another perk is the food at the events and meetings. Without PAL I would have never discovered delicious white chocolate truffle cheesecake with berries YUM.

What do you do now? Mom and dad are long gone, and you’re all alone... right? NO! Relax… you have a PAL!
