HKN Certificates

Hello fellow Eta Kappa Nu members,

Everyone’s official Eta Kappa Nu induction certificate is in the new lounge in the top drawer of the file cabinet in a green hanging file.  The lounge is in EGR 0148  (email any officer for the door code).  IEEE also sent us a bunch of HKN stickers.  Feel free to take one of those as well; they are with the certificates.  You can stop by anytime this summer or in the fall to pick yours up.  If you stop by this summer, it may be somewhat barren, as we are still in the process of completing the new lounge.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Best regards,

Rich

Maryland Day Volunteers Needed

Hey guys,

As many of you know or will know, Maryland Day is coming up next week Saturday April 26.  Following tradition, we will be presenting a laser-field obstacle course somewhere in the Kim Engineering Building. So we need volunteers to set up the day before and the morning of.  We would maintain the laser field course throughout the day from 10Am to 4PM. We need lots of volunteers. Inductees will get 15 points per hour for volunteering.

Volunteers get a FREE T-SHIRT and FREE LUNCH for Maryland Day too! I would like to have at least 4 people per hour on Saturday. Time slots are: Friday: 4-6PM && Saturday 8AM-5PM. Reply to hkn@ece.umd.edu.

Thanks,

Daniel Jean

New Website!

Hey members,

Welcome to the new website! You should be sent here automatically from now on, but if you need to access the old website, you can get there here - http://hkngammaxi.site11.com/. The old website will close in about a month or so, and you will no longer be able to access it or post announcements there.

This new website has a number of advantages over the old one, most notably the University of Maryland URL and easier editing and posting features for officers. Officers should check their email for a message about how to post announcements here.

Be sure to give me any feedback or send any questions or concerns you may have at jdowell AT umd DOT edu.

Thanks,

Jeffrey

HKN Professional Event – APT

Hi Guys,

Applied Predictive Technologies is coming to UMD campus on 4/11 and will be holding a recruiting information session in the CS Building in room 1121 from 2-3pm. I encourage anyone who is interested in a entry level position (Hardware or Software) to attend. For inductees, this will count towards points! Just reply back to this email with your name, so I can get a headcount! Also, you should bring your resumes! It would be a great opportunity to network with professionals in the industry!

Thanks,

Simon
