The Breakfast Club

No, it’s not the super, amazing John Hughes movie from the 1980s – but it will be just as great, if not better! It’s not all day detention and you won’t need to raid Barry Manilow’s closet in order to attend. It’s going to be a busy day, so grab a cup of joe (or a soda from the vending machine) and ease into it. Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place but you can get your day started right while meeting your classmates and raising a ruckus, "Can you describe the ruckus, sir?" Enjoy some relaxing conversation with fellow early risers. Introduce yourself to new classmates and enjoy the fact that you don’t have to spend 8 hours and 54 minutes writing an essay!


10:30 AM-11:45 AM

Impact Considerations for a 24x7x365 World
