The CCA Counseling Department invites you to come and laugh your way out of the stress of midterm week with comedienne and laughter yoga
specialist Alicia Dattner. There are two sessions, one on each campus. Alicia asks, "How does it work? Laughter Yoga is a simply a practice

Is a new golden age of creativity upon us? Or is it the end of design as we know it? (Or both?) Is design going to be the primary catalyst of meaningful societal change in the upcoming decades, or are we all just going to be designing a bunch of apps?
