National Nuclear Science Week Events

NNSW Events Today!

Hey all,

Today’s events are in the link below! Some really great speakers are giving very intriguing talks today. All free to attend at the KCC. They need attendees, and I encourage you guys to attend one or more of the sessions! You won’t regret going, but you will if you don’t!

NNSW Vols Needed Tomorrow!

First of all, an eternal thanks for those who volunteered yesterday! The day was a big success!!

Currently, we are in desperate need for volunteers for the last day of the Nuclear Science Week tomorrow (Saturday). ORNL looked to us for a big number of volunteers, yet for Saturday we have come up short.
We need to live up to our namesake and muster up the Good Ole’ Volunteer Spirit of Rocky Top tomorrow at the Knoxville Convention Center (a short walk from campus).

Some of the nuclear students from Vanderbilt will be showing up and showing out tomorrow in volunteering, and we need to do the same, especially in our own home field!

Also, the local ANS section and ORNL award scholarships of $3000 each year to a number of students. Approximately 1/3 of that application is volunteer work. I would encourage each of you to apply! And I can say with certainty that those who help with the NNSW will have a much stronger application than those who didn’t!

So come volunteer with us tomorrow at the KCC between 7:30 am and 4:00 pm. As said before, no need to register, just show up and sign in at the registration desk on the east side of the building!

We can’t do this without you!

NNSW Volunteers Needed

ORNL needs our help!!

Volunteers Needed

Hey everyone!

ORNL is VERY VERY short on volunteers for Nuclear Science Week on October 22nd-24th. Here are some ideas we have to do our part:

  • If you have not signed up for volunteering, go do it! They need us! And we need to help them out. Sign up for as many slots as you can! It will be in the Knoxville Convention Center (not even a 10 minute walk from Pasqua).
  • Talk to your friends! As part of one of the nuclear student societies on campus, you’re in the know about this stuff. Ask any of your friends in nuclear to join you when you volunteer! There are flyers posted all around Pasqua with more info, so you can direct them to it.
  • Ask your professors if you can make an announcement at the beginning or end of classes.

We need all hands on deck to get this done! Thank you all so much for your participation and support!

Finally, the good part: here’s the big button which takes you to the volunteering site for you to sign up or tell people about!

 

Button isn’t working for you? That’s no excuse! The direct link is here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0844AFAB23A1F85-nuclear.

You guys rock! Have a great day, and Go Vols!

ANS NGFP Meeting

Speical ANS Meeting Tuesday

Hey everyone!

We have another meeting tonight, Tuesday, October 6th. This meeting is not our regularly programmed monthly get-together: this is a special meeting for students interested in graduate school or are looking at fellowships. This meeting will feature guests discussing the US Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Graduate Fellowship Program (NGFP).

“The NNSA Graduate Fellowship Program is seeking highly motivated graduate-level students for one-year salaried (plus benefits) fellowships in nonproliferation technology and policy, research and development, nuclear safety, emergency response, and more!”

Please see the attached flyer here for more details.

This meeting will be held in Min Kao 524 on Tuesday, October 6th, at 7:30pm.

Local Section Dinner

The Local ANS section dinner meeting is next Tuesday, 10/13/15 at 5pm. Remember, students eat free! You can find all the details here, and please RSVP here.

Volunteers Needed

We need 4 volunteers for the Serpent User Group Meeting October 13th -16th. This is partially in Fall Break, so if anyone will be around and not going on the King’s Island/Cedar Point Trip, we need some more, especially on Friday! Email Greg Meinweiser (gmeinwei@vols.utk.edu) or Dr. Donovan (ddonovan@utk.edu) if you are interested in picking up a shift!

Volunteers do not need to be present for the entire conference. The schedule will likely be divided up into morning/afternoon shifts for Wed-Fri. If you’re able to volunteer, let us know what days you’re available for morning / afternoon! Thanks in advance to anyone able to help out!

T-Shirt and Dues

You can pay dues and pick up your T-Shirt at the monthly meeting (though likely not tonight). You can also pay in Pasqua 305b when our treasurer, Danielle McFall, is there.

Have a great day, and Go Vols!
