Summer 2019 Semesterly General Meeting — SGM

Hello Future Engineers!


I hope everyone had a good first day of classes!  The ESS wants to remind everyone that our Semesterly General Meeting (SGM) is coming up this Thursday May 9th at 15:30 in the ELW Lobby.  At this meeting, we discuss important matters such as the terms budget, policy changes, hold elections, and eat FREE PIZZA.  In the past, all elections were done at this meeting, now things have changed recently but more on that below.
