Opening BanquetOn the first evening of our summer program following the check-in, Professor Krosnick will host an informal banquet dinner in a casual setting. Participants will have a chance to meet the SIPP staff and introduce themselves to the group while enjoying a delicious meal. This is the first opportunity to meet fellow scholars and senior researchers in an effort to propagate lasting collaborations and friendships, as well as cementing a large and regularly interactive community of mutually inspiring colleagues.
Picnic at the BeachOn the second Sunday of our program, participants will join the staff for a picnic at New Brighton Beach near Santa Cruz. After a bus trip to the coast, the group will enjoy a delicious barbecue lunch at a beautiful picnic site overlooking the Pacific Ocean. In the afternoon, the group can spend time socializing at the beach, playing sports, taking walks, and swimming in the Pacific Ocean.
