MSSU’s First Year Research Seminar Needs Volunteers

The Medical Sciences Student Union is putting on a gigantic collaborative event with 6 other student unions (Biochem, LMP, Neurosci, Pharm & Tox, Nutritional Sciences, and Human Bio)! It’s a seminar aimed to inform first year students about research opportunities on campus. Obviously, first years need to know about this in order for this to work, so HBSU is helping advertise.

But that’s not all! Everyone knows first years are lazy, so MSSU is planning to take the battle info directly to their classes. We’re going to need volunteers to help invade go to popular first year classes and hand out fliers and/or make pre-class announcements.

Obviously, this is most convenient if you’re a first year student and have one of these classes, but even if you’re not, all 7 student unions will greatly appreciate your contribution!

Here are the timeslots available, you only need to do ONE if you choose to volunteer.

What is the event?
This is a research seminar oriented to first year students to expose them to the opportunities available to them at the university. There will be a presentation from the ROP Office regarding opportunities in 299 courses, and presentations from various professors and graduate students regarding research projects and summer opportunities for students!
