Thanksgiving/November PUMA Update

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

November has been a quiet month for PUMA after hosting 3 events last month in October. The visit from Southwest Airlines and their NoLimits recruiter was a success! They were impressed with what PUMA had to offer and have offered to return next year! Hopefully we can make it a much bigger event, invite the whole campus (obviously in a bigger room), and use it as a great way to advertise for PUMA!

Our 2nd Annual Graduate School panel, co-hosted with PUGS, was well attended by members in both organizations. We thank our panelists for taking time out of their busy schedules to answer the questions of those in attendance who hope to attend graduate school themselves.

A PUMA tradition continued on Halloween with the annual PUMA Pumpkin Carving social. After business items were discussed at the beginning of the meeting, our members had the chance to take a break from their studies and carve pumpkins to celebrate the holiday. Who knew that a couple science students could be so creative?

Up next for PUMA is our annual Ugly Sweater Christmas Party. It will be on the last day of classes, Friday, December 7th at 6pm in HAMP/CIVL 4251. There will be plenty of treats and even a gift exchange! Ugly sweaters are encouraged.
