This summer, Humanities Commons will honor one of the most time-honored traditions of the season: summer camp.
That’s right- we’re hosting our very own virtual summer camp for users old and new. The HC Summer Camp will be particularly helpful to anyone who has wanted to take advantage of our platform, but either hasn’t found the time or isn’t sure where to begin. HC Summer Camp will give you deadlines and guidance to help you achieve your ideal digital presence.
This group and its connected site will serve as our campgrounds. Join if you’d like to receive updates, inspiration, and reminders about each of our bi-weekly challenges. Remember to also set up your email settings as desired.
Please visit our site for more information and updates: https://hcsummercamp.hcommons.org
