T-Shirts T-Shirts T-Shirts!

Ladies and Gentlemen, Bacteria and Germs,

Please keep an eye out in your e-mails over the next few days for messages about your T-shirts — we have reason to believe they will be able to be picked up at some time this week!

“But Bec,” I hear you ask, “What if I wanted to get a stylish and sexy shirt, but didn’t because you didn’t have my size?”

“Well then!” I would reply, “Come along to the SciSoc BBQ THIS WEEK on WEDNESDAY to pick up a shirt  [$10 Access/$15 Non-Access]

All you can eat AND totally free if you’re in a smashing shirt! Plus, it’s a great way to make new friends in your lectures!”

Don’t believe me? Meet Fred over here. Fred, tell the nice people your story:

I was such a loser. It was week 11, and I didn’t have any friends in my lectures. Everyone was all “Fred, you suck and you don’t wear cool clothing”. So I went and bought a SciSoc shirt, and suddenly, I’m the coolest guy in first year chem! Thanks, SciSoc! You made me look awesome!

We sure did, Fred. We suuuure did.

Awards for Citizenship

The Dean’s Award for Citizenship is offered annually to undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled in Science degrees. These awards recognise the contribution of Science students to the Faculty’s non-academic activities and interests. Please note that the awards cannot be held concurrently.

Established in 2000 by the Dean of Science to encourage and thank those fulltime students currently enrolled in any undergraduate or postgraduate degree course offered by the Faculty of Science who have, in the opinion of a selection committee comprising the Dean and the Pro-Deans of the Faculty of Science, contributed most to the Faculty’s non-academic activities and interests. Up to five awards may be made in a year. Nominations must be made by an academic member of staff using the application form.  

Visit the Faculty of Science homepage for more information! 



Didn’t come see us during O-Week? Miss out on a T-Shirt?!

Never fear, you can still purchase a shirt and thus still receive a free BBQ this week – just pop up to our bookstore or come along to the first BBQ.

At the moment, we only have Large and XL in stock, but we are in the process of ordering Small and Medium, so buy one anyway and hang onto the receipt – you can still get a free BBQ if you bring this along, and as soon as the shirt is brought in, we will email you to let you know that you can come pick it up!

$10 with access/$15 non-access

Welcome to 2011

To our old members, welcome back. To our new ones, welcome!

I hope that the holidays have brought you some much needed down-time before another hectic year at University, alternately if you’re like me, then all you really want is for this semester to be over so you can be somewhere else other than University.  Either way, a warm hello and welcome to you all – it’s going to be a great semester (SciSoc wise anyway, I can’t promise this about anything else).

First on the agenda? BBQ of course! And wait, what’s this? A new event?! A pub-crawl? Of the lab coat persuasion? Tell you more? … I will, later on in this email 🙂

Are you excited yet? Me too! Scroll on for more news from our wonderful committee – until next time!

Love, The SciSoc Executive

Volunteer opportunity: Science Mentoring Program in 2011

The Faculty of Science is now accepting expressions of interest for the Science Mentoring Program in 2011. This program links senior student mentors with new first year students, to help them find their way around uni and get to know the ropes (which subjects to choose, which societies to join, etc.).

If this appeals to you, have a look at the mentor website: http://sydney.edu.au/science/cstudent/ug/smlp_mentors and follow the link to the online Mentor Registration Form. You’ll need to complete this form by November 20 to be eligible.
