Events

We meet regularly for BYOL (bring-your-own-lunch) events, usually inside or outside of DRL. We also try to get together for a social event about once a month, such as happy hours, Christmas Village trips, origami sessions, pumpkin-painting and ice-skating. Some of our events are jointly organized with Penn AWM.

Please let the organizers know if you would like to be added to the email list to find out about these events!
