QMSS/QASR celebrate the Oscars

March 2, 2014
A Little Oscar (Study) Party

We had some QMSS students interested in watching the 86th Academy Awards together on a Sunday night. QASR reached out to the Coordinator at Uris Hall to reserve a classroom for our group of film aficionados. Despite some technical difficulties, we managed to get things up on the (somewhat) big screen in time to see the lovely Jared Leto accept the award for Best Supporting Actor.

Thank you to everyone who came and our guest hosts, Ben and Daniel.
