Genghis Khan is Coming to The Tech!

A new exhibit is heading over to the Tech to replace Star Trek later this month. This will be the first and only west coast appearance of this exhibit featuring over 200 artifacts from Genghis' reign as well as a touch of Mongolian culture (just writing the word Mongolian is making me hungry for some Mongolian BBQ). For all the details, take a look below! If I find any available discounts, I'll post a link here.
