Discussion: What Do You Want To Learn and What Can You Teach

Our first meeting of the year will be focused on introductions and building this semester’s schedule of topics. To mold the upcoming schedule of topics to your needs and desires, please attend. We will engage in a fun democratic exercise in which we each offer and request knowledge. In this way, we’ll keep THW relevant by weighing in on what topics are important to us as a community. To request particular sessions, volunteer some useful knowledge, or just hang out, please join us at 4:00pm in Room 190 of Doe Library.

First Time Attendees

We are very hopeful that many new faces will join us this semester. We would especially love your input at this meeting. Your voice will help us to make The Hacker Within as useful and peer-driven as possible.
