  3. Attend at least four other BMES events (lab tours, socials, outreach, etc.)


  1. If the Habitat for Humanity trip in January is attended, this will count as one outreach event for the fall semester and one outreach event for the spring semester since it occurs in the middle of the school year.
  2. All industry, medical school, and graduate school trips serve as 2 "wild card events".
