The Light at the End

April 2, 2012

Greetings everyone!  Welcome to the last full month of the semester.  As the end of the term draws ever closer, we wanted to let you know about our sunset plans, as well our meetings from here until the end.

First, officer elections will be held during the meeting Friday, April 27th.  New officers will assume their duties the first day of the fall semester, but will be included in events until then.  If you are interested in running for one of the three positions, review the constitution to see the duties of the office.  We’ll also be inviting interested persons to sit in on executive meetings over the next couple weeks.  If you have any questions, send them here.

Also, if you attended our last Python presentation by Dr. Nerur, you can download the slides from that presentation so you can practice if you like.

Here’s a list of meetings we’re planning for you guys through the end of the Spring semester.  As always, if you’re not a member, you can always join at the door.

Graduate School Presentation: Thursday, April 5, 1900-2030, COBA 251:
Dr. Davis will be giving a presentation and information session about graduate school offerings specifically for us in the information systems department.  There are exciting opportunities and perks to be taken advantage of even if you’re not a senior right now.  If you’re even thinking about adding a graduate degree to the feathers in your cap, you should definitely attend.

SI Session for Java I: Wednesday, April 11, 1600-1730, COBA 151:

Curriculum Meeting: Thursday, April 19, 1900-2030, COBA 152:
