Thanks so much to everyone who volunteered at the regional cluster meeting! Hope everyone had a great time! Our meeting this week will be an opportunity to improve your presentation skills. Graduate advisor, Jasmine Scott, is an award-winning speaker and she will be sharing tips. Please note that we are in a different room than usual in Pamplin this week, Room 3001! (Click on image below to enlarge.)
Come learn about opportunities working on drinking water quality, as well as hearing more broadly about undergraduate research experiences. We will have a representative from the Office of Undergraduate Research who can let you know about funding sources, opportunities on and off campus, etc. Bring a classmate or friend!
Please join us this week for our first general body meeting of the year. Getting involved in MANRRS is a great way to make new friends, build your network across disciplines, develop professional skills, add to your resume, and learn about awesome opportunities! Come enjoy pizza with us! Our meeting is Wednesday 18 September 2019 in Room 32 Pamplin, from 7:30-8:30 pm.
Please plan to attend our MANRRS general body meeting on Tuesday, October 10th, 6:00-7:15 in Squires Room 126 (BCC). PLEASE NOTE THE EARLIER THAN USUAL START TIME! (But feel free to drop in whenever you can.)
We’ll have reports from those who travelled to the Regional Cluster Meeting in Atlanta and to the Junior MANRRS event on the Eastern Shore last weekend. All are welcome to share your growth experiences over the last month with us as well! We will be talking about officer and committee roles. Please see the list of positions in the menu bar to the right and be thinking about how you can contribute to leading this organization forward. We will have sign up sheets so you can contribute your time to help sell concessions at football games (raising $ to support travel to nationals and other events) and to participate in community service projects including Cooking Around the World event with Christiansburg Institute (old website here) on 21 October. Please bring a friend and join us on Tuesday! (Photo credit Tyneshia Griffin)
