SPROJ Check-In Meetings

This fall, join us Wednesdays at 4 pm in Room 402 for weekly check-in meetings to help keep you accountable to your SPROJ and provide you with loads of moral support. The meetings will be simple, informal, and focused on moving your project forward. You’ll report to the group what work you’ve done or not done—no guilt allowed!—and set a reasonable, achievable goal for the coming week.
