The MSL Gala

The MSL Gala began in 2022, and has since become a tradition for the club as an annual celebration of all we’ve achieved that year as well as an award ceremony for members new and old. Although new, the gala has quickly become one of our highlight events we put on as a club. Members are able to get together outside of the classroom and have a good time celebrating all that we have accomplished as a club over the past year and talk about all the exciting things to come.
