Updates on ESM GSO Activities

Hey all,

Just a few reminders.

Next week our last Diversity in Science brown bag lunch will feature our own department head, Mike Messina, talking with us about the current and future diversity in the department. Please join us November 7th from 11:30am-1pm.

Please attend our Fifth Annual ESM GSO Chili Cookoff on November 8th, 11am-1pm. The Chili Cookoff is one of the events that raises the most money that the GSO uses for all other fun activities provided throughout the year. If you would like to submit a dish, please email ecosystem.gso@gmail.com for more details.

Lastly, the monthly ESM Happy Hour for November has been moved to November 9th. We will be meeting at Liberty Craft House. More details TBD!

The Chili Cookoff will be Wednesday, November 8th from 11-1 in 217 FRB. 

Please consider entering your award winning recipe into the cook-off! You get FREE taste testing when you enter a dish- in case you needed an incentive! Faculty, staff, and grad students are all encouraged to submit a chili entry. The more entries, the better! Please let us know by next Wednesday (November 1st) if you’d be willing to enter a dish!

There will me a monetary prize and bragging rights for the two top entries. This is also a great event to socialize and take a break from the busy semester.
