We are striving to maintain the social bonds during this pandemic so all social events will be online until further notice. While this is certainly not an ideal situation for anyone, we hope this new format opens up social opportunities for all members of the ATOC community who might not have otherwise been able to attend due to distance or other commitments.

About ATOC Social Events

During this pandemic, all ATOC social events are open to the whole ATOC community as they are hosted online and are designed to be family-friendly. As such, we do ask that if you decide to participate, to keep everything to a PG rating.

We try to schedule a social event roughly once a month per semester and are usually held on Fridays starting at 6PM MT.

Spring 2021 Schedule

For privacy reasons, we have started requiring passwords at our zoom events. If you would like to join one of these events but don’t know the zoom link or password, please email Laurie.Conway@colorado.edu, Sebastian.Schmidt@lasp.colorado.edu, Gina.Jozef@colorado.edu or Tessa.Gorte@colorado.edu for more information. Alternatively, all social event information will be posted to the ATOC calendar at least two weeks in advance and all zoom information should appear there.

If you have any suggestions for future events or if you think we can make our events more accessible, please email Tessa.Gorte@colorado.edu or Gina.Jozef@colorado.edu.
