Group sizes will be limited to promote active discussions and personal connections. We ask that you sign up for no more than three discussion groups so that as many students as possible may have the opportunity to participate. Additionally, given the limited number of spots, please treat these sign ups as a binding commitment and delete your sign up if you will no longer be able to attend.
