Humans of ICS is a way for the ICS community to get to know more about the people we sit next to in class but haven’t gotten the chance to befriend yet! ICS students come from all kinds of backgrounds, and we want to highlight YOUR journey! Our goal is to try to connect everyone in ICS one step at a time! A familiar face in class never hurt anybody.

You can nominate yourself or a friend here and we will be in contact with you for the next steps!
