School starts in 11 days, and here I am wondering if I need to start another countdown. My ever-growing task list tells me I have more important things to do. So far, I’ve helped launch the Graduate School’s new webpages as part of College of Charleston’s overhaul. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should take a moment to browse the new site. I also sent our new information pieces out to print, and am working the behind-the-scenes work for Tuesday’s launch of our new information system, Banner. Don’t even get me started on my Fall travel schedule. I haven’t RSVP’d for one Graduate & Professional School Fair!
I am also getting ready for something even more important: Graduate Student Orientation. If you’re a new graduate student, don’t forget that we are hosting Orientation on Thursday, August 20 at 6:00 in Wachovia Auditorium. The Graduate Student Association will also host their Meet & Greet at Yo Burrito following the Orientation.
For all graduate students, please check your Edisto email account. You’ll see an invitation to September’s Responsible Conduct of Research seminars. These seminars are strongly encouraged for all graduate students, and we are offering two opportunities to attend next month. The first is Tuesday, September 8, and the second is Saturday, September 12.
