This Wednesday (that’s just about right now) we return with more February slam: this time, we’ll offer the CUPSI Warm-Up, a five-team slam to help warm up our local favorites to head to collegiate nationals in Boulder. Come see Emerson College, the Berklee College of Music, Simmons College, Harvard University, and Northeaster University slam off for nationals-buond practice and local bragging rights!
