The Five College Area & Friends!


The point of a Five College Area CS group is to make us more centralized in hopes of planning more events and getting this community more active! While the entire Pioneer Valley is awesome, it's pretty big, and I noticed most suggestions of events were getting stuck on the location aspect. The secret to this group will be that all events take place within the Five College Area. All are welcome! We're not only students, just using the colleges as a reference point! Of course, students are welcome too!

Clearly I'm not well-versed in every establishment in this area, so feel free to pop in and introduce yourself, recommend your favorite neighborhood dive bar, quirky cafe, best open-mic night or anything that catches your fancy. All suggestions welcome, feel free to pitch in with your own events! Perhaps we can get some weekly or bi-weekly thing going as well.

We also have a Facebook group here, for those who are better at Facebook:
