  3. Neurobiology Student Club Meeting Thursday 5/2

    Hi all,

    Hope you’re all enjoying the beautiful weather! This Thursday, May 2nd from 5 – 7 pm at Paccar 492, we will be holding a mentoring “speed-dating” event. This is a great opportunity to get together, meet with classmates, and mingle with other mentors or mentees. Feel free to come even if you are not in the mentorship program! We will have several stations on a variety of different aspects of academic paths through NBIO, STEM broadly, UW in general, and professional development, and there will be time afterwards for people to study and mingle. It’s not too late to sign up for a specific station topic here! Come run through ‘speed dates’ with our mentors and get advice on it all!

    Have fun talking with classmates and grab some snacks while you’re at it; hope to see you all there!
