Tis the season and all that
Well, there are several times in the year when Wallenberg Hall gets a little busier than normal (if that were possible!). The end of each quarter, and in particular the end of the academic year are some of those times. However, the time I like best is the Holiday Season. Besides the flurry of "final presentations", end of quarter class pizza parties, cramming for exams in the lounge areas at all hours, requests for space for running studies before the quarter ends, and the usual frenzy of last minute applications for space for teaching in Winter quarter, this is the time of the year we also host some fun and interesting events.
The beauty of a building like Wallenberg Hall is that it can be adapted for so many purposes. From a Business Plan competition event, to a multi-screen/multi media presentation, to a Metaverse speaker event beamed out to Second Life, to a holiday party. From an "off-site" retreat for a leading venture capital company, to a symposium, to a Santa Lucia party for Scandinavians at Stanford. These are all happening in December, and that is just on the first floor, using our innovative learning spaces.
Many of our events are open to the public, and we encourage you to visit any time and see the building in action. I can give you a tour by arrangement, and I am usually in the building from around lunchtime into the evening, especially when we have events on.
If there is interest in what goes on, I can post regularly on upcoming events. If you are interested in holding events here, whatever you have in mind, please contact me to discuss your ideas.
