Attention grads! Next week is the Math Graduate Week. We have planned an entire week of events with the graduating class in mind. And that would be... you!
Did you ever feel like the lights in the building could be brighter, and the tutorial centre needs more tutors? Maybe you think we need more computer labs that are open after 4 PM. The Pink Tie Pledge is your chance to make a difference: pledge to use some of your massive income post-graduation (I hear Google pays well) to donate to the faculty and make this place even better. Look for Pink Tie Pledge signs in your nearest hallway!
There's a light at the end of the tunnel. We've invited some past graduates to speak about their experiences and encourage you all to get jobs with Google. Here is your chance to ask burning questions like "how did you get by without a job at Google?" There will be a chance to hear the graduates speak, and also to mix and mingle. There will also be free food and beverages!
Hopefully you all took your graduation photos in the Spring or the Fall (If you didn't, the only other date you could do it is... today. Time to get that haircut and beg Jostens Dave to have a sitting for you). Now is your chance to say which of your grad photos will appear in the yearbook. Come to the third floor and have your say. This is also a chance for you to buy your yearbook (almost free!) and even have it personalized. For a mere $5 you can have your name on your yearbook. Forever. Best deal on campus.
Grad studies at Waterloo, with talks from each of the departments. Refreshments will be served. 'Nuff said.
Everyone likes Texas Hold 'Em. They especially like winning money to supplement their Google income. If you like poker (or if you like watching people play poker) then come on out and have a blast. There will be refreshments! Look for signs in the stairwell announcing time and location.
That's it for now. Don't forget that Grad Ball is coming up and pretty soon we'll all be working for Google. [WTF? Google is great and all, but damn! — iEd]
