TL;DR: Enter lottery to play trivia at bar. If you don’t get selected, then you get your money back.

Do you have an absurdly good memory for the most obscure niche information? Do you find yourself yelling at TVs when Jeopardy is on? We need your special gift. We’ll be testing our skills together at one of SF’s many trivia night bars; since we can only have a few people, we’ll be using a lottery system to see who gets in (works so well for housing, right?).

If you don’t get selected, no worries, we’ll get you back your money. This is a great way to test your skills, meet some cool fun people, and try out a new spot. Let’s get it!

SF Design Week + d.school Present: I Love Algorithms: Designing with Machine Learning

Register here to secure your spot.

This d.school workshop as part of San Francisco Design Week will explore the intersection of machine learning + design in a lower resolution and experiential way.

Do you tune out when people mention machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other big words that reference emerging technologies? Do you want to understand what they are and how they might support your work and impact society? Are you “not a tech person”? If you answered yes to any of those, you are exactly the type of person that needs to be part of shaping, using, and working with emerging technology. And no, you don’t need to know anything about code. Together we’ll learn by doing.

We have secured 10 discounted tickets exclusively for Stanford alums. Tickets will be distributed as first come first served. The event is otherwise sold out. Get your tickets now! For those who are interested and have time, we will head to lunch together nearby after the workshop.

Join fellow alumni as we look to give back to the San Francisco community. St. Anthony’s has been serving San Francisco in so many ways since 1950, from meals to addition recovery to clothing to medicine. Register here.

Help us serve San Francisco in a small way by volunteering with us at St. Anthony’s Free Clothing Program. We have 15 spots available for our day. The commitment is 3 hours (our shift is 1-4pm). The teamwork and collaboration of group volunteers helps St. Anthony's sort, quality check, hang clothing, and assist guests in the shopping experience. We look forward to serving with you!

All alumni are welcome to sign up to volunteer.

About St. Anthony’s Free Clothing Program

St. Anthony’s Free Clothing Program is San Francisco’s largest free clothing program, providing warm clothes, interview apparel or workwear, and children’s clothing to homeless and low-income families and individuals. The Free Clothing Program at a glance:

  • More than $3,000,000 in clothing donations from individuals and corporate partners per year and nearly 1,200 volunteer hours each month

  • 36,000 pieces of new and like-new clothing distributed for free to nearly 10,000 guests each year (including more than 2,500 children)

The average family spends $700 per child on clothing each year (USDA, 2014); the majority of families have two or three children, which can mean spending $2,100 each year. For low-income or single parents struggling to pay rent while covering healthcare costs and other critical bills, a clothing budget may be nonexistent.
