HGSA will hold the first of its two Spring semester meetings next Monday @ 3:30.


Learn to navigate the world of the printed word. Come to our “How to Get Published” workshop on Feb. 18 at 2:00PM in the Merrill Room.

HGSA Spring kick off

Rather than holding a time consuming meeting to discuss routine housekeeping issues, the HGSA executive officers have composed a summary letter to keep everyone informed and on the same page. If you did not receive a copy of the letter via email, and would like one, please contact Jon at jfrankli@umd.edu. Simply put “HGSA update letter” in the subject heading.


HGSA has concluded its workshop series for the semester, special thanks to Kim Welch, Ted Cohen, and Rob Chiles for lending a hand.
The last HGSA colloquium of the semester will be held Thursday, Dec. 10th @ 12:00. Melissa Kravetz is presenting.
Don’t forget, the holiday part is Saturday, Dec. 12th. Fun starts around 8:00.
Also, Costco has stopped carrying Coke products for the time being, so the co-op will have to switch to Pepsi products. I know, I know. We’ll just have to do our best to get through these tough times.
HGSA is just about shutdown for the semester. If we’ve missed something, or you have suggestions for next semester, please contact Jon Franklin @ jfrankli@umd.edu. Good night, and good luck.

The next HGSA meeting will be held on Monday, Nov. 16th @ 3:30 pm. An agenda will be circulated in the near future. Contact Jon Franklin at jfrankli@umd.edu if you would like to add an item to the agenda.
Also, committee reports have been posted. Click on the “minutes” tab at the top of the HGSA blog website to access the reports.

A reminder to all HGSA committee members, committee reports should be submitted to the HGSA email account asap (marylandhgsa@gmail.com). Also, Mike Soracoe recently attended the student organization ticket lottery and obtained tickets to 3 Maryland Men’s basketball home games (11 tickets per game). Those interested in attending should contact HGSA at the above-listed email.

On Wed., Oct. 21st Dr. Art Eckstein will give his Distinguished Scholar Teacher in Key 106. The lecture begins at 4:00 pm and a reception in the Merrill Room will follow.
