Over a FREE lunch, we want to hear from you, our students and customers, what we’re doing right, what we can work on, what we might do differently. We value your insights in helping us be the best we can be. The sessions will be limited to 10 people each time, and limited to one session per student (unless they don’t fill!). Put your name down at Student Central and join in the conversation!
