CHI I (69)Good news! You spoke and we listened! Thanks to popular demand we managed to open registration for all classes, including lottery classes. You can now submit class requests for any class. The lottery will still take place on January 18. Don’t forget that the best way to get a guaranteed spot in a lottery class is to become a GLNsider or class host.  Sign-up for your free GLN student account today and register for classes now.

  • Classes meet once a week for two hours each for 12 weeks (except when alternate schedule is noted).
