We will try to conduct these interviews during the conclaves that occur throughout the year. The hope is to connect our apprentice body with the Departments in which they study, and the faculty that enable them to learn and grow as Wizards. Our interviews will come from baseline questions and those provided by the apprentice body, either through being present at the conclave, or through the forums beforehand.

For the Imbolc Conclave, we had the amazing opportunity to interview the GSW Dean of Mathemagicks and Cosmology, our Head Of Lodges and Journeywoman Wizard - Dean Xenia Dragonseye.

P: How can they translate those skills into the Mundane World?

D: I use statistics to analyze a huge amount of da
