Hope everything is going well for week 3. If it helps we are almost done with 1/5th of the semester 🙂
For those who are going/interested in going to the 2019 SHPE National Conference in Phoenix, Arizona from Wednesday, October 31st to Sunday, November 3rd here are some important information…
1) Let your professors know THIS week about your departure. Even if you are on the fence let them know regardless. This is because it is university policy to let your professors know of absence due to a university-sponsored event at the beginning of the semester. The sooner the better.
2) Join the Stony Brook SHPE Conference Chat on Whatsapp if you haven’t already. The chat will be so we can stay connected as a group. Keep tabs and make sure we are all together. In addition, the chat will have all the information regarding housing, flights, reimbursement, etc. If you do not want to be part of the chat then please reach out to either the Stony Brook SHPE email (email@example.com) or our president Chris Quilla (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need help with housing. If not please let us know where you will be staying. This is just so we can keep track and make sure everyone is safe since we are responsible for this trip.
3) Career Center Professional Development Fund deadline EXTENDED to THIS Friday (9/13). More information below.
