Dear UCosmic Stakeholders,
I am writing with news of an event that may be of interest to students at many of your institutions. This is not a UCosmic event; it is an opportunity being offered to UCosmic Consortium member institution students through the Outercurve Foundation.
Students with relevant expertise are invited to participate in the first Time Inc Hack Day in NYC on Saturday, November 15th. Outercurve is providing 25 free tickets for students from UCosmic member institutions. The gathering is an overnight event in Tribeca in Lower Manhattan. Food, drinks, and Wi-Fi will be provided and there will be prizes, which include lunch outings with some of the top names in the NYC media market (including the editors of Time, Fortune, and Sports Illustrated, just to name a few!). Students are free to work on whatever coding project they like. This will be a great opportunity for students to get visibility in the NYC media market.
Information about the event and registration is available on this site: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/time-inc-hackathon-tickets-14046337975
We ask that you share this unique opportunity with your colleagues in the appropriate departments on your campuses. Tickets will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis through the registration website.
