EGSA Digest 04.25.14


All good things must come to an end. That wonderful time of the semester when you don’t have to work on your seminar paper is just about up.


EGSA 2014 General Elections

  • Elections are underway. If you paid your dues by the 22nd, you should have received a link to the voting survey. If you care about the destiny of the universe or who updates the EGSA calendar, be sure to cast your ballot before the end of the day.
  • If you didn’t pay your dues by the 22nd, somebody like your mom probably still loves you, but unfortunately you won’t be able to vote this year. Please direct your complaints to next year’s first-year representative.
  • The results of the election will be announced next Monday.


  • Like a crafty student increasing the margins, I acquired some smaller thank you cards this year for the GPD, dept. chair, and other faculty and staff who have helped support EGSA. This doesn’t mean that fewer of you need to sign them; it means that you don’t have to write as much. Crafty.
  • We’ll circulate the cards among the CS Writing Center and the two 4th floor offices next week. Take the trouble to locate them there and express your gratitude with at least your signature.

Even More Gratitude

  • Whew. That was a close one. As I knew you would, you came through for us, EGSA, and staved off the Austen-a-thon. Thanks for volunteering for the book sale.

MRRS, Today, 2:30–3:30pm, ABL Lecture Hall

  • Drs. Parsons & Hornik, “Select Images of the Pentecost Narrative (Acts 2)”
  • No rushing mighty wind or cloven tongues of fire, as far as I know, but I’m willing to bet we’re gonna get a first-rate PowerPoint.

Upcoming Events

19CRS, Fri., 9 May, 3:30–4:30pm, ABL

  • Graduate student presentations. Unlike many academic presentations, these tend to be engaging and comprehensible. Don’t let that discourage you.

Well, that’s just about it. We here at the Digest office hope your tummies are full and your hearts are content.
