When school is in session we aim to hold dinner meetings with an invited guest speaker and yummy food at least once a semester. We also meet informally in “Coding Circles” weekly throughout the semester:

Coding Circle, Fridays, 4:30-?: Bring your laptops, hang out with fellow students; nail polish and chocolate is always available. Come when you can, leave when you have to.
