Yesterday we had our first meeting of the year which went very well! We wanted to welcome in all of our new members so we did some introductions and ice breakers.
Afterwards, we wanted to put a focus on all of the different ways students can become involved in the department and advance their careers as undergraduates. We spoke about internships, research, becoming a student ambassador or TA, and more. Additionally, our returning members shared what they each did over the summer!
We brainstormed some potential events for the semester such as a bowling meet and greet and a few fundraising activities. We hope to also continue to participate in outreach projects in the area.
Overall, it was a great first meeting!
