What are booyas?
The heart of Boreas is the community we create – graduate and professional students and post-docs from across campus connect through Boreas. We host a series of Boreas Booyas (based on the Upper-Midwest tradition of community stews called booyas). At these events, you’ll be able to connect with fellow participants, learn from community leaders, and delve deeper into select leadership topics. Booyas happen on select Thursdays from 4:30 – 6 p.m. through the semester. Check out the rest of the fall schedule.
