Reading Day Overnight Tutor-In

December 14th @ 12:00 pm - December 15th @ 8:00 am

On Reading Day (12/14/16) GEO is planning a tutor-in action to show our organizing power and our dedication to our undergraduate students. Undergrads, this is a great chance to come get some free tutoring or writing help as you prepare for finals and finish your papers!

We’ll start at 12:00pm, joining our colleagues in the NTFC who will be hosting their semesterly work-in starting at the Illini Union. We encourage all members to stop by whenever and for as long as they are able, and to invite their students!

Coffee and snacks will be provided at 5:00pm and 11:00pm, and dinner will be provided at 8:00pm.

***Most important, however, will be our overnight tutor-in at 11 pm***. Whatever your availability during the day, we hope all GEO members can participate for at least part of the overnight, beginning at 11pm. Again, this action is going to be crucial for showing our power to the Admin and moving the needle during bargaining–and doing so in a way that helps our students! Feel free to bring your pillow, PJs, or a sleeping bag!

We made a **sign up here**. Please sign up for all the times you will come, and get as many of your grad employee friends as possible to sign up as well! //docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeZrv82tFTb3RImVamuuoF9_IH6ma9IRKWvkeoMzMp6lXQ_tQ/viewform

Be sure to invite your students!
