1. SAVE THE DATE: Shape your future -- Women in Business, Science and Technology Conference

The annual University Honors College Women in Business, Science and Technology Conference is coming up on Friday, October 29th beginning at 12pm in the LaSells Stewart Center. This year’s Keynote Speaker, Edith Dorsen, is a business development and marketing strategist who graduated from both Harvard Business School and Harvard University Kennedy School of Government. While presently the Managing Director of The Women’s Venture Capital Fund, she was the first woman ever hired as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company, a well-known consulting firm that advises leading companies on issues of technology, strategy, organization and operations. The breakout sessions will focus on issues affecting women in science, technology and business such as: “How to Change the World using Science, Technology and a bit of Women’s Intuition.” Light refreshments and appetizers will be served. Registration begins on the 18th and is limited to 100 students. Watch here for more information.  If you have any questions, please contact Alexa Carey at alexa.carey@bus.oregonstate.edu.



2. HAAC Volunteer Opportunity

Love the environment? Come help out at 3PM on Saturday, November 20th at the USC vs. OSU football game! We will be partnering with Athletics and Campus Recycling to “Adopt a Game” and help our Beaver fans make sure their plastic water bottles and other recyclables make it into the recycle bin—NOT the trash!

We need at least 20 volunteers to make this happen, so sign yourself up and bring a friend or two along. Commitment for the game includes two hours before kick-off as well as half-time—the rest of the day is yours. To get your name on the list or if you have any questions, e-mail Ardith.feroglia@oregonstate.edu.

Please note: This game is an anticipated sell-out, so you will need to pick up your student ticket if you plan to watch the game. (If not, you’ll still be able to help out at the gates before the game and during half-time.)


3.  Invite your Professor to Lunch or Dinner

Have you ever wanted to invite your professor out to lunch or dinner? Well now you can and the UHC will pay for your professor. All you need to do is invite your professor to lunch or dinner at a UHDS run location on campus, come in to the UHC office (STAG 229) and collect the UHDS meal card and form with the pay instruction. Once your meal is over, return the card and form to the UHC office. This is good once per term per instructor. So get a group together and take your professor out on us!


4.  UHC Research Study Room - Valley Library

The UHC has a private research/study room in the Valley Library just for UHC students.  If you are interested in using the room all you need to do is reserve a block of time and check out the key from the friendly SLUG staffers in SLUG I. This room is available in four hour blocks from 8-8 Monday through Thursday, from 8-4 on Friday, and from 1-9 on Sunday and can be checked out overnight Monday-Thursday and Sunday night (access is dependent on library hours). Call the SLUG at 737-6455 or visit them for more information or to reserve the room; blocks or overnight checkout can be reserved in advance, or, as long as it is available, the room can be checked on the spot in the SLUG. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this resource, which is perfect for getting some quiet, concentrated time to yourself. Let's make the most of it!


5. The UHC Photo Gallery

Don’t forget to check out the UHC Photo Gallery on the UHC web site http://oregonstate.edu/dept/honors/uhc_photo_gallery .  A new gallery is added for each UHC event.  Also if you have any photos that you would like to share with us you can e-mail them  to gildha.cumming@oregonstate.edu and we can add them to the gallery.  You can also add printed photos to the bulletin board in SLUG 1.
