The Art of Making Bread (Pop-Up Class)

12 PM in LNDL Lab B

Instructor: Andrew Schoeffield

Good bread warms both the heart and the soul. This beginners class shows you just how easy it is to make your own bread. It also explores why it is probably a good idea to make our own bread, rather than purchasing the bread-like products available at the store.

Speed Mentoring with Society of Women Engineers

7 PM via Zoom

SWE's Speed Mentoring Event is like speed dating with engineering professionals! Each mentor will share information about themselves and their career while giving students the opportunity to ask questions. After a certain amount of time, the students will switch to a new mentor. Engineering professionals from different disciplines will be participating in this event. Since this event is virtual each of these mini sessions will be held in breakout rooms!
