  • CVIC Abraham will be talking to them tomorrow about how we can help. Snacks We decided to put $50 towards getting snacks for the lounge. Mary will be in charge of purchasing the snacks. Within the next couple of weeks, snacks will be available for others to purchase. Separate organization for school counselors Dr. Whitcomb questioned if the new cohort of school counselors in the spring will automatically be members of Magna Iota or if they will have a separate organization. We will be looking into this further.
  • Website We have a website! Each officer is to send Abraham a picture along with name, hometown, undergrad degree and from where, and either what we like about the program or research interests to be put up on the website.
