Evan Weisrock We all know the Student Center has closed. On December 17, we said goodbye to the space with a cookout that included many students as well as faculty and staff.

“Networking & Pizza” was well attended last Wednesday (10/29) with a total of 48 students present. From a staff perspective, it was magnificent to see that many students interacting, conversing, and sharing future projects with one another. The structure of the event was to use the F.O.R.M. technique as a conversation starter. The F.O.R.M technique stands for Family, Occupation, Recreation, and Message. Each individual was to share this information and retrieve it from other students with the goal of learning how to have comfortably “small talk” conversations with strangers.
