August Update

The 2008/2009 academic year is fast approaching and the Physics Society has many exciting things planned. I'd like to first announce this year's executive:

Renée Yoxon: Co-President
Hass AbouZeid: Co-President
Leah Pearson: Vice-President
Nicholi Shiell: Secretary
Alan Manning: Treasurer

What a fantastic bunch! Now, on to the events.

Academic Orientation Day: Look out for the Phys Soc booth at this year's Prelude to renew your membership and take a spin on our top secret demo.

First Year Help: Starting September 1oth we will be hosting a weekly help session aimed at first years to help them get adjusted or to answer any questions. It will be from 1:00pm - 2:30pm in HP 2445 every Wednesday. We are currently looking for upper year volunteers for this project. If you are interested please e-mail us so we can begin to make the schedule. Thanks!

Movie Nights: This social event will occur at 7pm on the second Tuesday of every month, starting September 11th. If you have a suggestion for a movie or tv show send it our way. Location TBD.

Coffee Talks: Last year's open forum discussion was a big hit and we intend to keep it up this year. The talks will take place at 7pm in HP 2445 on the last Thursday of every month, starting September 25th.

Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference: This year's CUPC is at the University of Toronto from October 16th to the 20th. If you are interested in attending or presenting please contact us as soon as possible. More information on the CUPC can be found here.

Looking forward to seeing you all in September,
