Following the success of our first two events celebrating the University of Hawaii in Second Life, we're hoping you'll join us in costume for our Halloween party! Here are the photos from some of the previous parties.
Join us on October 28th to meet University of Hawaii Second Life users (students and faculty and researchers) from various departments and see our island, which replicates part of the Manoa campus and is used for meetings, classes and research. We will have Linden cash prizes for the best costumes and a series of games and activities.
An orientation session will be held at 6pm for new users. To attend you will need to download the Second Life program (http://www.secondlife.com) and have an account, both free (see below for instructions). If you don't have access, come see the party on the big screen in POST 309.
Questions? E-mail Sam (firstname.lastname@example.org) or IM Sam Solomon in Second Life.
