Meetup/Princeton University

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Princeton University's Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library is hosting its a series of Edit-A-Thons with the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students for the spring semester. Wikipedians of all experience levels are encouraged to participate.

WHO: Alumni, students, staff and anyone else!

WHAT: Focusing our efforts this time around on expanding the current pages related to Princeton University.

WHEN: Wednesday, February 20th 12-2pm.

WHERE: Frist Campus Center

WHY: To continue our efforts to add valuable Princeton related information to Wikipedia.

OTHER: Please bring your laptop since you will be asked to create a Wikipedia account if you do not already have an account (you are not required to have an account before participating) Public transportation may be best because parking may be difficult due to the big game. NJ Transit has a connection train, (dinky), with a drop off point within walking distance.
