Activities Expo Registration!

Juggling Club Expo

Registration is open for the First Week Activities Expo. This was a great success this fall and many RSOs took advantage of it to increase recruitment and showcase what they do. This year we expect nearly all active RSOs to participate and for it to be the best expo yet! The expo will be September 3, 2008 outside around the library deck. Hope to see you all there!

Scheduling Tool

Every have trouble finding a meeting time for you and your group? I ran across this very simple and easy to use scheduling tool online. There is no need to register, you simply visit and shade over the time that you’re available. It’ll send an e-mail to you and you can forward it to everyone in your group/meeting and they can adjust the available time. You end up with (ideally) with only the times that are good for everyone.

Founder’s Day

145 years ago, on April 29, 1863, John A. Andrew, Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, signed Senate Bill No. 156, establishing what would later become the University of Massachusetts.

This April 29th, the University will celebrate its founding in service to the Commonwealth with a celebration of music and dance from our campus and our communities followed by a festive outdoor barbeque luncheon.

The morning’s performance of music and dance, to take place in the Fine Arts Center Concert Hall, will feature outstanding talent from a variety of traditions in a fast-moving tribute to the original founders whose vision and foresight we benefit from today.

The commemoration will continue during lunchtime festivities with birthday remarks from His Excellency, Governor Deval Patrick, and from Jack Wilson, president of the University of Massachusetts. The nationally renowned UMass Amherst Minuteman Marching Band will entertain as our distinguished guests cut the ceremonial birthday cake in honor of our founders. UMass
