Weekly Update 2/25

Hola SHPEitos,
I hope this semester is treating you well. We have some upcoming opportunities for you guys:

No GBM this week

As the heading states unfortunately we will not be having a GBM this week as we will be attending SASE Pre-conference event which will run at this time. We would love to see you at this event especially if you plan on going to RLDC later this week.


Speaking of RLDC it is starts on Friday 2/28. If you plan on going and haven’t told anyone on the eboard please let us know ASAP. We need to devise who will be taking who down to the event, however if you want to go but haven’t told us you will have to find your own housing. If you are still on the fence you can still buy tickets, it is $30 for the career fair only please make a decision ASAP.


Due to the feedback we received last semester we are reducing the number of RSVP, but this one is the overall RSVP for all the events this semester if you’re interested in any of the events please RSVP here

SASE Pre-Conference

  • Held on Wednesday 2/27 in SAC Ballroom B from 7-10 pm

  • This is a good time get a last look at your resume before going to these conferences.
