About the Event

The UCI University Registrar has hired a consulting company to help them update WebReg’s interface. The ANTrepreneur Center is partnering with the Registrar to help them with customer discovery so that current UCI students can offer high-value feedback on the current website and course registration process. Through our WebReg Hackathon, the University Registrar will be able to gather ideas from students for their new interface.

Join us for 3 weeks of Talks & Workshops
