  • Questions for Speakers:

    Tweeting Questions to Speakers:

    During the Orientation, we will have a group of speakers presenting, many of whom you’ll have questions for. To expedite the question asking process, please tweet your question with the hashtag #<speakers first initial><speakers last name>2017. For example, for our Keynote speaker Julielynn Wong, you would ask your question then add #JWong2017 to the beginning or end of your tweet. See the agenda tab below for links to the Twitter #Hashtags. 

    Your tweet will be displayed on the Twitterfall backdrop during assigned blocks over the course of the orientation.
