SAGE General Assembly + Reception — October 8th @ 6 pm, PHO 901/906

October 6th, 2014

The SAGE board would like to invite everyone to a general assembly on Wednesday, October 8th, 6 pm in room PHO 901. At this event, we will formally introduce ourselves, as well as our planned events and new policies for this upcoming year (see Attachment 1 for more details).

Following the assembly, beginning at 7 pm, we will hold a reception in the Colloquium Room (PHO 906). For this, we are providing an assortment of international finger foods (see Attachment 2). This is a great opportunity to enjoy a diverse selection of cuisines and take a mid-week break to mingle with other SAGE members after class or work.

Because we are ordering a large amount of food from outside vendors, we will be partially subsidizing this event by selling tickets. Please consult Attachment 2 for more details.

Regarding Microsoft Software Access

September 7th, 2014

There has been an overwhelming number of people who have submitted the form for Microsoft Access. Once it is verified that you are a graduate engineering student, you will be added to the server, at which time a confirmation email will be sent to you with instructions as to how to access it. This process will likely take several days so please be patient, and DO NOT submit another form for access. Thank you.

Please also direct any questions to us, rather than to the Graduate Programs Office.
