Nano Night
September 8, 2020
7 pm – 8 pm

The first week of classes can be taxing. We know the feeling. To help students catch a breather and relax we plan to hold a virtual welcome party for current and new students alike. We will have some fun icebreakers and events planned to help you relax and connect with your fellow Nano Quakers.

Movie Night

The epidemic of the past several months has separated us geographically; however, the bond between Nano Quakers has been tightened wherever and whenever through the internet. We are committed to enriching the experience of this special period.
