Junior Sessions for Spring 2019

Held in the LGI, Rm. 1253

 

These sessions are designed just for you, juniors!  Sessions will be offered during both Cougar Block A and B on these dates, so you only need to attend one block session per date.   Our sessions are interactive, and you're welcome to bring your laptop if you have one, though it's not required.

For those unable to attend, I will post information and videos here after the sessions so that you have access to the information presented.
