Hello wonderful mathies!
I am your Vice President of Awesome (or
Academic... I forget) for this spring term of 2010. I am responsible
for anything and everything in MathSoc academically (and no that
doesn't just mean the exam bank, though I am responsible for that too).
Some things that I have done and will be continuing to do this term:
- UAPC (Undergraduate Academic Plans Committee): work with profs and
other individuals in improving future major plans for students.
Currently looking into the possibility of adding CS343 to the core
courses in the cs major plan before CS350.
- CEC (Co-operative Education Council): working with other society execs
and CECS personnel to improve the co-op experience for students.
- FedS (Federation of Students): working with FedS exec and councilors to
address any issues that may arise with involvement with MathSoc. The
first meeting was mainly filling committee seats. I'm the CRO for FedS
this upcoming term ;)
Some other things that I will be doing this term:
- Senate Undergraduate Council: Not sure what I'll be doing there yet.
I'll keep you posted.
- Lunch with the Dean: I'm excited for this :D. I've already met him
once before and he seemed like a really nice guy. I can't wait to have
a chance to poke at his mind for what he has planned.
- Exam Bank: I will be working extensively to update this. The reason it
hasn't been updated for a while is because there were plans to
automated so that profs submit it directly but seeing as that is going
nowhere fast I will be creating incentives for you, the students, to
submit any midterms and or finals that you have that aren't already
posted online. These are most likely going to be in the form of CnD
gift cards or novelty items gift cards. So start rounding up those
exams and stay posted for updates on that.
And now for some non-VPA related stuff that I have been up too. I've
been working with Kumar (the VPF) to improve CnD by doing things like
fixing the Slushie Machine working!!! :D
So stay posted because this will be happening this Summer!
