❄☃☕⛄

Hi BMES,

Last week of the semester also means the last week of BMES for 2013! We promise it'll be worth your while...first 50 people to arrive at our LAST general meeting this Wednesday gets a special meal, in addition to some special events to wrap up the semester--including voting for our new Freshman Representative! If you haven't already, shoot me an email (fantl@wisc.edu) to nominate yourself or a friend.

And, if I don't see you before finals, GOOD LUCK! You'll hear plenty more from me next year. :)

Final Presentations...ALREADY?!

Hiiiiii BMES,

Hope everyone had a marvelous Thanksgiving break, and is rejuvenated to power through the rest of fall semester. Tis the season to recover from turkey's tryptophan (what makes you sleepy, dontcha know), crank out the final touches on your design presentations, and to start getting excited for winter break...

I know we're all extra busy, but try & find some time to hang out with BMES this week too! At the very least, be sure to head over to ECB early Friday morning to snag some free coffee & breakfast to help recover from the lack of sleep. And if you're feeling extra ambitious, as always, check out the calendar for the full list of events.

AND, for all you prospective BMEs out there, be sure to check out the Application Essay Workshop on Tuesday. Get some advice from the writing workshop and BME upperclassmen to help write the perfect admission essay.

Have a good one, and knock 'em dead on Friday!

National Habitat for Humanity Down Payments...TUESDAY!

Hello, BMES!

Thanksgiving is justtttt around the corner, and I'm sure we're all in agreement that we're itching for some family, turkey, and time away from school. Because of the three-day week, our General Meeting will be held this Tuesday from 6-7 in 1800 Engineering Hall. With speaker Jerry Lindner from Medtronic and the National Habitat for Humanity sign-up occurring afterwards, you definitely do not want to miss this meeting.

But, should your schedule not allow and you are interested in signing up for the Habitat trip, please reach out to either myself or Dan Thompson. We can arrange a way to reserve your spot. Payments should be made via cash or check and include the waiver sent out in the BMES General Email. Please have this signed, printed and ready to go!

Finally, we are proposing an amendment to our constitution--to only include one officer for the Industry/Research Chair position, with the term beginning during the fall semester. If interested, view proposed changes here.

See you Tuesday, and if not, have a great holiday!

Exam File...Coming Soon, With Your Help

Hi, Friends!

As mentioned at the general meeting last week, BMES is developing an EXAM FILE...YAY. If you have any old exams from a BME-related course that you are willing to donate/share with BMES, please do! It can remain anonymous, and you can keep the original copy. Attach a PDF or stop by our office hours to share the knowledge, and build up good academic karma in the process. Just think about how excited you would be if you could access a pile of exams from your difficult courses...

Also, if you are interested in joining a fundraiser committee for BMES, please respond to this email. This would be an excellent opportunity for any aspiring officers to get acclimated to the role. Planning meeting to be scheduled soon!

And, as always, read below to check out what events BMES is organizing this week.

Have a good one!

Class Advising Workshop, BMESsen Haus & More!

Hello, hello, HELLO!

The amount of time spent writing this week's email & blog post is directly correlated to how much we have going on this week...aka A LOT. So be sure to check out the BMES calendar and hang out with some of your favorite people throughout the week ahead.

Special shout-out to underclassmen: enrollment is just around the corner, so be sure to check out the advising workshop this Thursday evening. Benefit from the wisdom of upperclassmen to make a great fall semester!

See you all soon!

PLAYOFFS!

Hello, BMES!

After an eventful past few weeks, we've got a lighter one ahead. Be sure to help us get a "W" at our PLAYOFF intramural soccer game, and volunteer at the River Food Pantry. Details below!

And, my usual National Habitat for Humanity pitch -- if you're interested in attending and haven't signed up online, please change that! An email was sent out this morning with more specific details to only those signed up. If you missed this, please let me know & we'll get you up to speed with information.

T-SHIRTS! GET YOUR T-SHIRTS HERE!

Hello, BMES!

At our last general meeting, we voted and decided on a modest new BMES shirt.To make sure that everyone can have this perfect T-shirt in their perfect size, we will be using an online ordering system. Please fill out the following form and sign up for the size you would like to order: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1G8UaVx9Aw6eyLOuIGIzV0ZbAht9_lpBqJLfos6HlF_Y/viewform. The design can be seen on the sign-up, and payments ($15/each) can be made at the next general meeting. Don't worry, we'll be ordering a few extras too!

In other news...with intramurals ending, BMES events are rather light this week. Be sure to stay involved by volunteering at the food pantry this Friday.

Have a good one!
