Welcome back!

Hi Gators!

With the first week of the semester already in the books, we (the GatorNBS executive board) are excited to announce a rundown of what we have in store for our members for the next few months. We hope you’re excited about GatorNBS and if you have any suggestions, we want to hear them! This is all about YOU, the members. Here’s a look at what we’ve got coming your way:

  • Jan. 20 @ 8PM in Library West: Pre-Convention Meeting (for those members who are going to the March convention, or who are still considering)
  • Jan. 21 @ 6:30PM in Reitz Ballroom: MLK Event, Keynote speaker T.J. Holmes (join the event here)
  • Jan. 30 @ 7PM in Aha! Lab and adjoining conference rooms: “Get Your Act Together with GatorNBS” (resume building, career development, internship/job search help)

We will also be hosting former SNL cameraman, Jan Kasoff again, but the date is still up in the air. We will have other events to add to this calendar, including socials and general body meetings. Until then, we hope this can get you excited about the semester and what’s to come with GatorNBS.

Have a great weekend!


TAC Rapid Fire Recap

What a wonderful showing we had for tonight’s Telecommunications Advisory Council Rapid Fire. This event kicked off the TAC’s visit to the CJC quite well. Thank you to everyone who came (50+ members), and don’t forget about those one-on-one appointments tomorrow AND “Take a Member to Lunch” on Friday. Here are some highlights of the Rapid Fire meeting from social media:










Make sure to stay up to date with everyone NBS! We have a lot going on this October and you don’t want to miss out on any of the excitement!

**T-Shirt money is due this Friday, October 11th. Email Melissa Marerro at melissammarrero@ufl.edu to coordinate a time to give her the $15. It’s highly encouraged that those of you attending the March national convention buy one, so we can be represented well with our GatorNBS logo in L.A.!**
