EECS / Chem-E Joint Social

When: Friday, Nov 18 4PM-7PM
Where: 4th floor of the Stata Center
Signup: here (This sign-up list is for the 130 slots designated for EECS members; please only sign up if you are in EECS or in a lab that is EECS affiliated. 120 Chem-E’s are also expected)
- From my work on visit day and orientation, I have a good working relationship with the department, labs, and student groups.
- Will promote collaboration and joint events with other groups, in particular CSC.
- Start creating a physical presence for GSA. Currently, GSA is very lean as an institution: It is run by the volunteers, chairs, and board, but does not have a physical presence outside the events it runs. A near-term goal here is to get some storage space and maybe a notice board for GSA announcements.
Enjoy an informal evening conversing with MIT’s own Prof. Dina Katabi as part of the EECS GSA’s ongoing Faculty Dinner Series. Food will be served at the event. Spots are limited! Please RSVP here.
Date: Thursday, October 27*
