Uncategorized No Comments »

Hi WiCSE members!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving break and that these weeks before finals aren’t too stressful! As we discussed at the meeting before break, we will be having a fun VR workshop TODAY. This will be held in the VR room in the @One. We’ve rented this room out from 6-8pm on December 5th, so we can all have fun and play around with all of the cool VR devices that are available.

We’ll be meeting at 5:30pm in room 122 in the @One before we head to the VR room to discuss next semester’s activities and our upcoming cookie exchange. This is a longer meeting than usual, so we will be providing food and drinks.

Meeting time: 5:30pm – 8:00pm 
Location: Room 122 in the @One
Food and drinks will be provided!

I didn’t get many replies regarding the tour of GE, so we will likely put this off until next semester.

See you on Tuesday!
