Director’s Note: Wrapping up November

Happy holidays, everyone! As we enter December, students are heads down with wrapping up classes and heading into finals.  We hope that the holidays bring some stress relief for them!  We wrapped up our Eclectic Convergence conference in mid-November.  It was wonderful to utilize the new Verizon Conference Center at Cornell Tech!  The event was our first “in person” conference in, well, a very long time. We felt that attendees were clearly excited to be around each other.  We hope that all of your get some “around each other” time over the upcoming holiday season!
