Upcoming Events – Important Details

There will be no ANS meeting tomorrow.

EPA Hearing This Friday!

There is an EPA hearing this Friday in Atlanta, and we would love for people to go! ANS UTK did this last year and the EPA loves to hear from students. There are a few speaker spots left, but even if you don’t want to speak, we encourage you to go and have a presence. Plus, it’s a fun time in Atlanta. Send any questions to Remy Devoe, and sign up at the link below:

Stuff is Postponed

Tomorrow’s Meeting Postponed

 The general body meeting originally scheduled for tomorrow night has been moved tonext Tuesday due to time conflicts with our speaker. I’lll send out more details next weekend, but you can expect the usual: evening timing, probably in Min Kao, and free dinner!

Watts Bar Tour Postponed

Also, the Watts Bar Tour which was originally scheduled for this weekend has been moved to sometime in February due to a malfunction at the plant requiring all on-site staff (including those who were supposed to give us a tour). Sorry for the postponement, but they are a nuclear power plant so I guess safety should come first…

 Final Exam Stress Postponed

That’s right. Because it’s time for the annual ANS Winter Study Break! Join us from 10-4 in the Nuclear Lounge on December 2nd for a much needed study break!
  • Potluck of food – feel free to bring something! (much will be provided along with it)
  • Board and card games – bring your favorite!
  • Super smash brothers tourney/free play!
  • Come take a break from studying and celebrate the end of the semester with us!

Watts Bar / NAYGN Tailgate This Weekend!

Join us this Saturday, November 7th, before the South Carolina football game! We’ll be tailgating with the TVA Watts Bar Crew and the North American Young Generation in Nuclear chapter! They’re providing free food and drinks in Circle Park, starting at noon! They’re excited to meet all of you! It is NOT a formal event, so feel free to meet these professional nuclear engineers who might give you a job while wearing your most ridiculous bright orange and white overalls!

Watts Bar Tour Sign Up!

It’s officially happening – again! Join us for a tour of Watts Bar Nuclear Power Station on Saturday, November 21st. This is an awesome opportunity to check out a nuclear power reactor – if you’ve never been to a reactor (cough cough freshmen), you should definitely come on this trip! If you have been to a reactor, you should also definitely come on this trip (its still pretty cool). We’ll meet in the morning and carpool to the power plant!

Sign up for your spot here

After you sign up, we’ll contact you with the super secret forms to fill out that are required to visit a nuclear power plant!
