We have a number of activities planned for you to get to know each other, NCAN faculty, and Course faculty during your time here. This page will be updated regularly with forms to indicate your intent to participate in these activities, so check back here often!
To encourage discussion between students and faculty, we will also be organizing a number of dinners with faculty at local restaurants. Dinners will be limited to 3-4 students plus faculty. More information about sign-ups and the dinner schedule will be coming soon.
A closing plenary reception for the Course will be held at the conclusion of lecture on Friday, July 26th, ~5:30pm. Course faculty, NCAN staff, and students are invited to reflect on their time at the Course, plan future collaborations and meet-ups, and mingle while light refreshments and non-alcoholic beverages are served.
Summertime is here! Albany is known for its signature, free Alive at Five concert series, now in its 30th year of showcasing both big-name artists and the hottest local bands. Summer at the Plaza hosts a number of free events at the Empire State Plaza, home to state offices, the New York State Museum, and Corning Tower, which offers an amazing view of the Capital Region from its observation deck. We encourage you to take some time to explore New York's historic and vibrant Capital District! There is also a show "In the Heights," appearing at the Park Playhouse at 8 PM Tuesdays through Saturdays in July. The show is free of charge in the open hillside seating.
