Thanks to all who came to our second general meeting of the semester, and a huge thank you to our special guest speaker, Sarah Morgeson. The main topic of her talk was careers outside of academia and she also offered amazing advice on job interviews, applications and more.

Towards the end of the meeting, nominations were taken for 2019-2020 officer positions. If you missed the meeting and would still like to run for a position, contact Victoria Blackmon at victoria.blackmon@ttu.edu.

As a final note, T-Shirts are still on sale and any questions or interest can be directed to one of our officers.
