Sooo…how’s your fall semester going? Actually, nevermind. We know, and we’re sorry. That’s why we created ExtraCurricular. ICYMI: we’ve created an entire semester’s worth of classes—free! free classes!—to give you everything that (campus) life just…isn’t right now.

On Thursday, also at 7 p.m. ET, Maxie McCoy, host and executive producer of Woman On (a new digital experience that feels like talk show meets Sunday School—except not religious) and author of You’re Not Lost: An Inspired Action Plan for Finding Your Own Way, will teach you how to build a website as fancy as your résumé—no graphic design degree required, promise!
