  • There is UW Wifi access in the Tower.
  • Arrive a few minutes early—we will start on time.
  • Have business cards? Bring ‘em! This will be a great opportunity for making new connections.
  • Bring lunch or prepare for a quick run to the Ave (there is a small cafe with limited snacks and coffee in the cafeteria).
