Well, we have been doing some late Spring cleaning in the D130 office and we found some books and other items that we are going to raffle off periodically throughout the Summer!
The first book we are going to raffle off is -
New York: A State of Mind
The raffle opens Thursday, June 23rd and ends on Tuesday, June 28th. The 2 winners will be chosen randomly (http://www.random.org) on Wednesday, June 29th. I will email the two winners for their mailing addresses.
To enter, all you need to do is answer the 2 questions below in the comment section and make sure you provide your email address.
#1 What great part of this world do you come from?
#2 What kinds of non-credit classes would you like us to offer online?
Don’t forget to check in periodically for more raffles!
