So you may have noticed that Pizza Day was a stunning success this past Wednesday. At least I hope you noticed. I hope it will have been, since I am writing this blurb on Monday. The point remains: Pizza Day is back and here to stay.
After a period of hibernation, your Math Grad Committee is back to life. Aside from pizza day, we have a number of events planned between now and the end of the term. There will be info sessions for grads, social events, fundraisers and lots more! Watch the stairwells, and watch mathNEWS for announcements.
Upcoming important things: the second of two information sessions for graduating students will be held on Tuesday, June 14th at 5 PM in MC 2066. If you missed the first session (yesterday!), then please try to be there next Tuesday (unless, that is, you don't plan to graduate in 2006).
Also, very importantly, grad photo season begins next week. Watch for a signup sheet to be posted on the MGC board on the third floor (across from the C&D). If you intend to graduate in 2006, you need to have your picture taken this term. Otherwise you won't be in the yearbook, you won't be in the class composite and the photographer (and your parents) will get mad. An irate photographer adds 20 lbs. Easily. So it's better to stay on his good side and get your photo done early.
Now, speaking of photos and yearbooks, we want your pictures! We are collecting photos of anything and everything: people sitting around, people doing things, people studying, people sleeping in class, people's travels. In short, pictures of anything to do with anything, as long as it has some tangential connection to UW math. If you have something that you think is worth it, and even if you think it bites, bring it by the MGC office or the MathSoc office and it may well be immortalized in the yearbook!
Speaking of yearbooks and things that are worth it, volunteering with
MGC is worth it! Your graduating year can only be as good as the
effort the graduating class puts in, and we certainly need your
help. If you want to help, sign your name on the sheet outside the MGC
office and we'll be happy to have you!
