The Fall social event will take place on Monday October 16 in the Student Center’s Peachtree Room from 2-5pm (but lingering afterwards is possible, since we have the room until 6pm).
This is a relatively low-key event with:
- Halloween decor
- Those in the holiday spirit may choose to wear Halloween masks
- Snacks and drinks
- A game on each table for spontaneous play (and we also encourage those with games they’d like to share to bring them)
We want to make participation possible for our colleagues on remote campuses/locations as well. We’ll have at least one online game (to be determined, suggestions welcome) for both local and remote participants to play together. Also, we are interested in trying a “buddy” system, where a local participant teams with a remote colleague (on a phone/tablet/laptop via Bluejeans) for the social — the idea is that the local and remote buddies would roam together about the space, chat with each other and other “locals”, and meet colleagues. If you are interested in being either a local or remote buddy, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work to pair you up. This is offered in an experimental spirit — it may prove to be a fun way to meet and learn from colleagues across geographies.
See you Monday!
