Hi ,

Our next general meeting is tomorrow (Thursday, 11/7) at 5:30 in THH 214. Please note that the meeting is in THH, not KAP. We'll have Pasta Roma, please RSVP here ASAP so we have enough!

The MLAB YMF Student Roundup is also tomorrow (Thursday), at 6:30, in KAP 146. While the general meeting is more important, we encourage you to attend both events if you can.

Next week we're holding a resume workshop on Thursday 11/14 at 6pm in THH 114 with Civil/Environmental Engineering Professionals from ASCE MLAB YMF. We'll also be hosting a tailgate before next Saturday's football game against Stanford (11/16, time TBA).

Concrete Canoe and Steel Bridge have their regular meetings this week, except for paddling practice. Our Environmental and Geotech design teams will be holding their first meetings soon, come to the general meeting for more information about them and PSWC, our big conference in April 2014!

Finally, the CEE Department is hosting a holiday party in the Radisson Grand Ballroom on Friday, 12/6 from 6-9:30pm. RSVP here by next Friday, 11/15.
