The AESOP 2013 blog has hit the press!

Hello AESOPers!
We keep a blog every summer sharing some stories from us coordinators and our student leaders to tell a bit about what we’ve been up to on our end and how the inner-workings of AESOP are going. With the new year upon us, we have finally begun blogging again to keep you updated on where we are in the AESOP planning process. If you’d like to follow what we’ve been up to, check in on our blog as we’ll be posting to it as often as we can in the coming months.
