Snacks for your thoughts

UPC is starting to plan the FNL line-up for Fall 2015. But first, we need to know what YOU want to see!


We're looking for people to participate in focus groups (snacks provided!) about perceptions of FNL and what types of events are of interest. We specifically want to talk to students who come to most/all FNLs and students who come to no/almost no FNLs.  If you fall into either of those categories and want to talk, please email silverbr@southwestern.edu.


Focus groups should last about 30 minutes and times will be determined around participant schedules.
