Take Back Your Time Day at UCM

Be a part of the 10th annual Take Back Your Time Day event. The day is dedicated to you. The purpose is to set time aside to enjoy free time for yourself, friends and family. We’re overworked and schedules are so overloaded that society’s health and relationships are at risk.
So, take a day and dedicate it to yourself, your community or others, whichever you choose, make it count!
