 at the Yellowjacket Union on the campus

What is an Unconference you ask? Essentially, Unconferences are participant-driven conversations. Participants generate, and ultimately select, the topics that will be discussed. Participants self-select into clusters for facilitated, timed conversations and then repeat for a set number of rounds. This Unconference will be a great way to explore the co-curricular topics you want to talk about; share ideas, hear what others from around the Twin Ports and the Mid-West Region are doing, and have some fun.
