Meet & Greet
Before the first official “class,” we want to get everyone from previous and upcoming courses together to meet each other, get to know the location and space, and share their experiences. At the beginning of the event, we will review the website and basic expectations of the courses as well as explain the first assignments to prepare for Class 1, so please do arrive on time.
Once the “business” is done, folks will be welcomed to hang out, snack, and get to know each other until around 6pm or so. We’ve found it’s really helpful to get to know the students, instructors, and teaching assistants in both courses early on, as these people will become your support system during and between classes. While missing this doesn’t technically “count against your absences,” we do expect everyone to attend if at all possible. It’ll make the transition into the course much smoother and your time in the course much more enjoyable.
We will provide some light refreshments (snacks, water, soda), so you don’t need to bring anything (unless there’s a specific drink or alcoholic beverage you’d like to have).
