Conversation & Dessert

New Student Programs is excited to offer the new series "Conversation & Desserts." This is an opportunity to get to know other students both on- and off- campus in an informal conversation. Participants who are on campus will receive a box of sweets in their campus mail box. Unfortunately we are not able to offer this to our remote students - but we still hope you participate! 'Seats' will be offered on a 'first come - first served' basis. Once 'seats' are filled, a waitlist will be maintained for additional seats.
