1) COFFEE HOUR: This Wednesday! (Jan 9).
Come on down to the BGSA room (N2/5) for free coffee!
10:00am Jan 9th
2) BGSA Help Desk
We’d like to get this service up and running this semester! For those that don’t know about it – the plan is to have a running list of times where certain individuals will work in the BGSA room and be available for questions on any topics they know. This can include various computer-type tech questions, how to run various stats models/programs, as well as presentation help.
Because the previous signup is pretty old, please SIGN UP if you’re interested in being a volunteer for the help desk this semester.
I’m also especially looking for someone interested in taking charge of coordinating the help desk. The task shouldn’t be too large, as we already have a pretty good idea on how it will proceed. It would just require scheduling all the volunteers into time slots and keeping the calendar up to date. Let me know if you’re interested!

Nic has been sending out the info, but the signup is here
