You have between now and April 6th to complete the requirement. The requirement is considered complete once you post your short reflection and review of your experience to the eCollege Discussion Forum for Lecture 2.
If you have questions about whether or not your chosen event will meet the requirement please contact the instructor prior to attending.

- Description of the organization(s) sponsoring the event
- Date, location and time
