I hope everyone had a great February as it now comes to a close. I just have a few announcements and updates to pass out here since I feel they are of interest to you guys.
First of all I want to thank everyone who was able to stop by our booth at the National High Magnetic Field Lab Open House this past Saturday. I didn’t get a chance to see everything but I know there were tons of people, especially at our table. It was a great success. I want to put out a special thank you to Anthony Hazel and April Byrne who stayed the whole day and helped out tremendously. We made an awesome team. It was great to see some familiar faces and meet all the new people that I haven’t seen before. It really was a great success.
If you didn’t get to go or couldn’t find our table (we were WAY in the back by the dried ice ice cream) then you might not have seen that we got our new t-shirts in. We still have a lot in our stock, along with other lingering merchandise that is always for sale. Here’s a list of the prices, as some have been updated:
Messenger Bags: $15
We will be ordering hoodies within this next week so I’ll keep everyone updated on that as the ordering comes along. At the open house the messenger bags were very popular so if anyone wants to see one or is interested in buying them, shoot me an email and we’ll set up a meeting time. This is the same for any merchandise available. If you want to buy something, let me know and we’ll meet up. We have Youth shirts as well, in both garnet and grey too, just to keep that in mind.
So again, thank you for everyone who came out, who visited, who helped and who bought merchandise! It was an amazing turnout.
Next on the agenda is our March meeting. As we have spring break coming up next week, we won’t be having it until the third week of March at least and the idea is being tossed around as to whether we want a speaker or if we want a cool movie/get together deal. More news on this will definitely be coming in the future so keep your eyes open for all that.
Next! The Undergraduate Poster Session is fast approaching so anyone who is currently doing research and wants the chance to win some free money (who doesn’t like free money?!) please email Dr. Roberts at email@example.com and let him know you will be participating in this year’s poster session. Not only do you compete with your peers for monetary prizes but you also get to see what your peers are working on and what the current research is around the FSU labs as well as those at the NHMFL. I strongly encourage everyone doing research to participate. It truly is a great experience.
Finally, I’ve been told multiple times that a lot of people aren’t receiving my emails. I, unfortunately, can’t add those persons to the mailing list myself but I can pass their emails along to Dr. Blessing who can control that. So, if one of your friends is a physics major and hasn’t been receiving my emails, then please tell them to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Blessing at email@example.com to get added to the mailing list. Otherwise, our SPS website is consistently updated by our amazing Webmaster Aaron Murphy so all announcements are there on the front page.
If anyone has any questions, then please send me an email and I’ll do my best to help.
Thanks and have a great Monday!
