Society presidents, vice presidents and chaplains will attend the society officers seminar held in Levinson Hall on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.

The seminar includes a training session from 9 to11 a.m. in Levinson Hall and a vendor fair from 11 a.m. to noon in the Riley Reception Room. Visiting vendors will give the students an opportunity to look into T-shirt and memorabilia ideas for the societies.

The focus of the seminar will be on the society constitution, vision and mission, and the purpose is to equip the major officers to fulfill their roles for the semester as well as to begin to prepare the next group of officers for rush at the beginning of the fall semester.

Graduating Student Expo

The University will hold a Graduating Student Expo in the Riley Reception Room on Wednesday, Jan. 29, from after chapel until 2:15 p.m. “It’s a one-stop shop for all those necessary tasks that need to get done in order for graduation,” according to Dr. Jeff Heath, director of Enrollment Planning.

Lunch will be provided, sponsored by the Alumni Association. Two grand prizes will be awarded at this semester’s Graduating Student Expo. The first grand prize includes commencement seating reservation for the prospective graduate’s family, a reserved parking spot in the parking garage on commencement day and a Bruins duffle bag. The second grand prize includes a free graduation diploma, compliments of Herff Jones.
