This is a correction to an Intercom article published earlier this week about the SGA's Cortaca Live event. In the article, we incorrectly listed the November 15 event's start time as 1:00pm, when the event actually begins at noon. We apologize for any confusion, and please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
