Yes, the time has come, and on Wednesday we all have to go back to being responsible adults. For those jaded upperclassmen like me, chin up, and for the new freshmen, you too will one day know our pain.
Don't worry, though, because DAFT, like Gandalf atop a brilliant white stallion, is ready to charge into the dark horde of homework and the Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse department. Here are a few dates coming up next week to kick off the year:
September 11th, 11 AM - 4 PM: The Involvement Fair!
We will be tabling at the Lincoln Park campus along with a couple hundred other student groups, in order to welcome new freshmen and get them involved in the community. We will have lots of shiny secular swag, delicious things to eat, and best of all, the triumphant return of Sell Your Soul for an Oreo!
September 12th, 6-7:30 PM: Our First Meeting!
The very next day, in Student Center 315, we will have our first meeting of the year. We will be giving a small presentation on what DAFT is and what we stand for, as well as previewing our events for the coming term. We will also be setting our meeting dates for the rest of the quarter, based upon our members' schedules. The rest of the period will be dedicated to introductions and general hobnobbing. Feel free to bring snacks!
The most important part of this is the meeting dates: we want to make sure that everyone who wants to be involved can be, so even if you cannot attend, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the days of the week that you would be able to attend meetings this quarter. From there, we will set a regular schedule that will be posted on this blog, as well as our social media outlets.
That's all from DAFT HQ. Hope to see all of you very soon!
