First up, the election results are in! Mujidat is our new Vice President, I will continue serving as Secretary, Bethany is our new Business Manager, Nick B. and Chelsea D. are our new Events Coordinators, and in a clenching victory, just barely beating out her closest competitor, Liz will continue to be our President!
In some other sad news, this was our last meeting of the semester and this is Sesi's last meeting before he leaves for Senegal for the semester! So we've planned a going-away party for him at Miranda's house this Sunday at 8pm (I'll give you directions to her place later). I know you'll all have finals to study for, but Sesi will be gone for months so he needs to go out with a blast.
While your at home over the holiday, it's a good time to talk to your families about helping you out with your pledge for the race this spring. Finally, here are some other things to do:
GLOBAL STUDIES ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 7 - DECEMBER 14
2010 Summer Study Abroad Scholarships for Global Studies The Nationality Rooms Summer Study Abroad Scholarship Program was established to provide University of Pittsburgh graduate and undergraduate students with the opportunity to add an international dimension to their education. The purpose of these awards is to give an in-depth immersion experience of another culture for at least five weeks. The scholarships are the result of the committees' fund-raising throughout the year. Scholarships are sometimes given in memory of an individual, or by a donor whose belief in the benefits of study abroad remains constant. The scholarships available for 2010 are listed on the Website http://www.ucis.pitt.edu/natrooms .

Forge Book Drive
Do you have books you're going to see back or are just lying useless, or will be? Please consider donating them to a worthy cause. Think twice before you sell a book back for a mere few dollars, a fraction of what you paid for it. Maggie Tully is collecting school books to donate to a program called Schools for Schools. Our university is partnered with a school called Layibi Secondary School in Northern Uganda, and all the books will go towards updating Layibi's library. Email Maggie at firstname.lastname@example.org and she is willing to meet you wherever to pick up books and answer any questions!
