Winter entertainment events

By Paula Fuentes

It’s time to start a new year and quarter, but that doesn’t mean all stress and new assignments.

The new quarter also brings some great entertainment on campus for all Broncos and their loved ones to enjoy.

While many of us enjoyed being able to forget about campus for the past three weeks, many organizations have been hard at work preparing for the events to come.

This quarter we can look forward to events such as, plays, concerts, dances, performances and a variety of contests.

With a variety of events too look forward to, students will get a break from academics to enjoy some spare time while also supporting fellow Broncos.
