    • The HSA website

      • Welcome to the our new HSA website. It will now serve as a delivery method for all the news and information regarding HSA to be placed, stored, and easily located. The site layout is much simpler than it was. There are also design features that will allow us to better archive the site. As time goes by, the old information will stay organized and accessable. The old site, which can be accessed here, is going to be kept online until the end of the fall term. If you would like to have the entire 13mg zip file of all the pictures that were on the site, please email the webmaster so some delivery method can be worked out. There simply isn't space for the file here. If you have any news to be posted, or have any questions about the our site, please to let me know! I look forward to serving as webmaster for the year, and hope that we can all make our site better! Yiasas
