Try a day without devices.
The centerpiece of Analog U is the campus-wide invitation to take a tech holiday—to go completely analog on Earth Day, Friday, April 22. Join us in taking a tech holiday and set aside your devices for a day or a portion of the day. Practice yoga, meditation, of qigong. Learn more about the impact technology use has on our abilities to learn, interact, and be present. Join us on Collier Lawn on Friday.
