Pecha Kucha Harvard 2 presentations will start at 7pm on Friday October 12 in Piper Auditorium, Gund Hall.
Doors open at 6pm for socializing and networking at Beer and Dogs in Chauhaus. Chauhaus is a portmanteau of “chow” and “Bauhaus“.
Beer and Dogs – Where the working world has its Friday “five o’clock whistle,” the GSD has its six o’clock beer and dogs. Sponsored by the student chapter of the ASLA, hot dogs, pizza and cold beer are served in the Gund Hall cafeteria. Anticipated equally by both faculty and students, Beer and Dogs is an opportunity for the GSD community to end the week in a social and relaxing environment. And for 1 dollar per hot dog and two bucks a beer, it also makes for an inexpensive dinner.
The second Pecha Kucha event at Harvard will be held Friday, October 12, 2007. The event is a free public lecture. Speakers represent the entire GSD community of alumni, faculty, staff and students.
If you’re a fan of Pecha Kucha Harvard, please join the Facebook group. Please RSVP on the Facebook event. Watch this blog for event updates.
