All students are welcome to attend Networking Club meetings and the end-of-year events in Atlanta, Orlando, and Washington D.C.!

Once you have completed the Curriculum with a grade of 7.5 or above on each section, you will be provided with full access to Symplicity.
All First Semester 1Ls who complete the Curriculum by the deadline will automatically be entered into a drawing to receive 1 of 2 professional leather portfolios! The deadline for First Semester 1Ls to complete the Curriculum is Friday, September 20, 2013.
All other students who still need to complete your Curriculum can log onto Desire2Learn to do so and send an e-mail to Tara Block at firstname.lastname@example.org once you have completed it.
