BUGS

Biology Union of Graduate Students

What: Each week we read an article and get together on Friday to discuss it. A different person is in charge of choosing an article, sending it out to the mailing list via Trunk, leading the discussion, and bringing snacks each week. We also volunteer at the North Grafton Elementary School in the spring and go on a hike each semester.

When: Fridays during the school year, 2:45 pm

Where: SEC 327

Who: Anyone who's interested in reading, discussing, and learning about ecology!


Come to the first ERGO meeting of the semester (watch your email) to sign up!

If you would like to be added to the ERGO mailing list, email Brenna Gormally or Jessica Rozek.
