    they’re all for prefrosh!! well some are specifically advertised to prefrosh on the wesfest website, but you are more than welcome to go to any event you can find. all the events listed on this post are definitely available to you, and they are a somewhat well rounded representation of what we do around here when not doing school… and you’re guaranteed to find other prefrosh wherever you go
