(Alumni Bay Area) Virtual Happy Hour

We'll be hosting an online happy hour, just because we haven't connected in too long, and it will be fun to know what everyone is up to.

The format is simple : 60 minutes, and we'll go around so that everyone can briefly introduce themselves, and tell us:

  • One unexpected talent or activity that is your spark
  • What are you thinking about/reading these days (could be work, politics, world affairs...let your inner sciences po shine).

If there is demand, we could make this a monthly series, on the first Thursday of every month. It just so happens that the first Thursday next month is April Fool's Day, which bodes exceedingly well for our first virtual meet.
