LIS GSA Chock Full O’ Events!

By Lina Terjesen

LIS GSA began the semester with a Happy Hour at Jack’s Place on February 12th. This semester, the group has many more events planned for your enjoyment. Among them is ice skating at the Rotary Rink in downtown Buffalo on February 28, a lounge event as soon as the student lounge is open, a Rochester Happy Hour (or 2), bowling night, and a year-end celebration. Stay tuned to the listserv and the Events Calendar for specific times and dates of these events.
LIS GSA held an open forum for students to share their thoughts about the department, faculty, accreditation and anything else LIS-related that may be on your mind. Karen Reczek, a SILS alum, moderated and will aid LIS GSA in creating a document to repsent to the faculty. The document and faculty response will be posted to the list serv.
As a gentle reminder, LIS GSA has a policy in place that states that conference funding requests are submitted by the 15th of the month prior to the conference.

All are invited to the next open LIS GSA meeting on Thursday, March 5th at 5:15pm. Location is TBA.

LIS GSA Ends Year With Happy Hour

by Ellie Jones

LIS GSA will end the fall semester with another Happy Hour at Jack’s Place
on Thursday, December 4th starting at 9pm. So, the night before your last class (and possibly a final) come down to Jack’s for food anddrinks courtesy of LIS GSA.

LIS GSA will also be hosting an orientation like event in January 2009. Suggestions for the event include karaoke and ice skating.

The mentorship program will be in full swing next semester as well. LIS GSA
is working with local, professional organizations to enhance and to broaden the program. Watch the listserv for information on how to become a mentee or mentor.

LIS GSA will also be working on a program that will allow students to come to-
gether, to express concerns and questions about the accreditation process and the DLIS program as well as offer ideas and suggestions for the program. This will be a chance for students to explain their interests and perhaps suggest course ideas and routes to follow.

And finally, LIS GSA would like to congratulate all of the December graduates on their achievements and on earning their MLS.  LIS GSA wishes all December graduates a hearty congratulations and good luck in all their endeavors!
