We will meet in SI 4127 at 2pm Friday September 6, 2013. That's today! This first gathering will provide an understanding of the honor society and the benefits of membership. In addition, we have a guest speaker at each meeting to discuss current research in the Denver metro area, or other opportunities for students. Tomorrow's speaker is Dr. Aimee Bernard, who will discuss opportunities for student internships through the Experiential Learning Center (ELC) for CLAS students.
