Coffee Hour in the Bear Courtyard
Nearly two dozen students buzzed around the Bear Courtyard this afternoon during the Jacobs Community Coffee Hour hosted by the Jacobs Graduate Student Council. The quarterly event featured free coffee, and ice cream for just 50 cents. Also available: Jacobs Grad T-shirts for a mere $7, or 3 for $20. Mark Chapman, student activities chair for the Council, said the T-shirt sales aren’t a fundraiser, but are instead designed to bring people together from across the Jacobs School. “It’s a way to build community,” said Chapman, a graduate student in bioengineering. That's Mark on the far right in the photo sporting the bright red Jacobs Grad T-shirt.
Jacobs Graduate Student Council President Ludovic Vincent (far left in red), also a bioengineering student, said the Council offers regular networking, social and professional development programs and events throughout the year. Just last week, the Council hosted a luncheon with industry recruiters, who sat with students at round tables in a kind of recruiter speed dating.
Next week, on March 14, the group is hosting the 2013 PI-Mile Run/Walk in partnership with the Triton Engineering Student Council. If you have not registered for the Pi-Mile Run, there are still spots available! Please register at jgsc.ucsd.edu. We’re assuming this is obvious, but the Pi-Mile run is 3.14 miles long.
