Updates from the Academics Portfolio Edition 1 Tuesday October 9 th 2012
Patrick SackvilleRichard Placzek ASA Events: Get Together for the Foreign Policy debate on October 22nd (details to come via Facebook group) Election night at the Spoke Tuesday Nov. 6th starting at 6pm, everyone is welcome Next slide... (+ posters)
Presidential Election bet between Pat and Myself, Pat is a Romney man and I'm a Obama guy so we re doing a public bet to raise awareness for American Studies and the club. There will be a post on the Facebook page later this week that will allow students to make suggestions on what the punishment the loser will receive. The Suggestion period will run up to the 26th of the month. Then there will be a vote held for the top 5 suggestions that will end at 10 pm of election night. The punishment will take place the next day on a very public location on campus. We will announce the results at the election event. We will most likely be finding a way to use this event to raise money for a charity. This will be open for everyone to participate in so we would like to ask for the council to support us and spread the word and if anybody would like to get involved and help out there more then welcome to.
Upcoming Seminars: Friday, Oct :30 pm SSC 2257 General information session for undergraduate students who may be interested in applying to grad school. Friday, Oct :30 pm SSC 2257 Scholarship application workshop Emily Skelly
