Hello fellow ECE Students and leisure sport afficinados,
I announce to you the ECE Grad Lounge Foosball/Ping Pong Tourney 2011.
A tournament of the ages, this competition will be a single elimination bracket based tournament played out on the ECE Grad Lounge and possibly outside. There will be music, snacks, beverages (quite possibly adult beverages), and of course, prizes for the winners of both competitions!
Currently, the tourney is scheduled to take place Friday May 20th starting at 4:30pm and continuing until 1 team in each bracket is standing alone at the top.
How do I sign up? Well, I'm glad you asked. Sign up Spreadsheet Just put your name and your partner's name in the boxes along with your team name (for foosball) or sign up as a single to get paired up at a later time. We will also be offering a single's ping pong tournament.
Of course, this tournament is contingent on having enough people sign up to play in it. So please invite friends in the ECE department and perhaps friends in other Graduate departments. As long as they are 21 we can probably allow them to play.
More rules will be announced in the future.
NOMINATE YOURSELF (or a friend) FOR NEXT YEAR'S ECE GSC!
It's that time again! Time to consider who will take the reins of the ECE Graduate Student Council during the next academic year! This is YOUR chance to institute the social programing, academic-related issues, and various other changes as YOU see fit! In short, this is YOUR opportunity to take control! Plus, it's great leadership, organizational, and managerial experience that will be of great use later in your professional life; and it looks great on a résumé!
Check out descriptions of the various GSC positions:
Nominees will have to write a brief and painless statement of intent to confirm their nomination so nobody is surprised to find themselves on the ballot when we start voting.
We will open up voting within the next few weeks, so get your name on the ballot ASAP! Let the fun begin!

I would like to announce the opening of the new and eagerly-awaited ECE Graduate Study. It is much larger and nicer than the Old ECE Graduate Study and thus much much larger and nicer than the most recent Temporary ECE Graduate Study.
The new and eagerly-awaited ECE Graduate Study is located in Jacobs Hall, Rm. 3329. It is accessible via the ECE Graduate Lounge. If you have access to the ECE Graduate Lounge, then you already have access to the ECE Graduate Study!
--Get your learn on.
--Make use of the ECE-related books dispersed around the room; they are for everybody to use.
--Come up the solutions to the world's energy problems.
--Prop open the door that leads directly to the outside patio. This door is an exit only.
--Steal the ECE-related books dispersed around the room; they are for everybody to use.
--Make any type of mess (including; but not limited to; scrap paper containing flawed calculations, disgusting and smelly food, empty pens, and shoes).
Please enjoy this newest addition to the 3rd-Floor Graduate Area, which is quickly becoming the envy of graduate students from other departments all over this campus!
