First GSO Meeting Friday, September 18
From your fearless GSO President, Elissa Hansen:
Hello, grad students!
I hope your first week went well and that you're steeled to dive into this one. When it's over--i.e., at 4:00 on Friday, Sept. 18--please consider coming to this year's kickoff Graduate Student Organization meeting. Two major agenda items loom:
• Conscript representatives to sit on departmental committees (build the service section of your CV! make a difference!). We'd love to get people from a broad spectrum of specialties contributing to the conversations on the undergrad and grad studies committees, and we need a new Council of Grad Students rep--I can't swing it this year.
• Brainstorm ideas for the GSO town hall meeting that new DGS Mimi Sprengnether has pledged to hold. Let's figure out how best to air our concerns about the program and ideas for its future (reform the teaching trajectory? revise the curriculum? improve communication?).
Plus, we'll have some kind of sugary snack, and if softball happens at 5:00 as I anticipate it might, you'll need the calories.
Hope to see you there!
