In addition to Orientation, both local and remote students are required to return to Silicon Valley for an all-class gathering. The Gathering is designed to bring students together to (re)connect and actively review and reflect on issues in the industry. The 1-1.5 day schedule will feature a number of workshops and teambuilders, an engaging panel discussion, opportunities to reevaluate and recharge, and more!
