First General Body Meeting and Happy Hour

We will be hosting our first general body meeting on Thursday, September 8th from 4-5pm in FRB 217 (snacks provided!). The first half of the meeting will be discussing various initiatives and events planned for the semester. This is a great time to learn more about what’s going on in the department and to give input about what sort of events/resources you would like the GSO to pursue.

For the second half of the meeting, representatives from the Coalition of Graduate Employees (CGE) will be presenting the hows and whys of the unionization push and will host a Q&A. This will be a great opportunity to ask questions and to clear up any misunderstandings about what the union might mean for you.

Following the general body meeting, we have the first Happy Hour of the semester at Local Whiskey. Come unwind and spend time with colleagues old and new!

Hope to see you there!
