Fourth Friday Meetings

  • The Fourth Friday Series will allow you to meet all of the college leadership, introduce you to all of the college offices and services, tour each campus and be part of mutual mentoring communities in which you can have just in time discussions with your classmates.   Each meeting will be a full afternoon, starting at 1 pm and probably ending around 5 pm.
