Current students in the MSC Program enjoy a suite of co-curricular programming throughout the year. Co-curricular programs are optional events, gatherings, discussions, workshops or talks that offer students a chance to dive deeper into a popular topic or a learning theme. One of these programs is the MSC Meet Up. MSC Meet Ups are informal, social happy hours for current students, faculty, staff and alumni. Meet ups are fantastic opportunities for students to connect and hang out outside of class, as well as network with alumni.

The winter quarter MSC Meet Up was held at Smylie Brother’s Brewing Co. in Evanston. The meet up was a convenient location for alumni and students who work in Evanston, and it was great to see so many people from this community outside of the classroom and work place.

At meet ups, alumni friend groups come together and catch up, like the crew from the
