Students must attend a minimum of THREE sessions (TWO sessions are included during your regular class period; that means you must seek out a third session convenient to your schedule). Additional attendance (beyond the three) will serve as extra credit.

X CREDIT: Again, any IWH session above the required three (two of which occur during your class period) counts as an extra credit. Bring friends to any of our public events and get extra credit (the more friends, the more credit). Attend an event beyond your class period (that is, come early or stay late) and get extra credit (the longer, the more credit).
