Maybe you don’t know it, but there is a handy web app where you can manage your membership in various mailing lists (that include department mailings, OU club, etc.). Look at “Other Lists” tab for a list of mailing lists that you can join.
Once again the PGSS elections have been and gone and I am very happy to say that I am your new president.
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a second year Ph.D. student in the Department for Physical Sciences. I just wanted to send out this email so that everyone who was unable to attend the elections could find out who their new committee were. So, drumroll please…
*In the role of treasurer we have… Richard Busuttil, a third year in Physical Sciences.
*In the role of secretary we have… Rebecca Wolsey, a second year, also in Physical Sciences.
*And sharing the role of webmaster we have the equally mysterious Phil Rogers and Dasha Herrmannova.
For those of you who attended the elections I would like to thank you for voting me in and I will try my very best to get the things you want (well thing…cashpoint). No promises but I will dutifully try.
Lastly I would like to say that we will be having many events happening this year to try and get everyone together as much as possible (without you all being sick of seeing my face) so keep an eye out on both the Facebook page “PGSS at the OU” (https://www.facebook.com/groups/7146754111) and our new website “http://www.open.ac.uk/blogs/PGSS/” where we will post information of upcoming events.
I hope you had a happy Monday and have a great rest of the week!
Your new President,
This week Milton Keynes is hosting 19th Concrete Pint Beer Festival (the word “concrete” refers to the (in)famous concrete cows). The festival takes place in the center nearby train station and you can try there 90+ different beers and ciders. See the website for dates, times, entrance fee and other info.
Welcome to the new look PGSS site. Hopefully you can find lots of info that you’re looking for and it will be useful! If you have any comments or there is something specific you’d like to see on here then just drop us an email.
