Come celebrate getting through the academic year at our first (and final) in-person event of the semester. Whether this is your first or last SACNAS event come enjoy some delicious food and hang out with your fellow SACNISTAs on the last day of classes. In addition, it is during this event that we will be announcing our incoming board for the 2021-2022 academic year.
This will be a socially distanced event limited to 40 guests. RSVP is required. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions about the event.
Financial Wellness Series – “Investing Made Simple”
Join us in our first installment of SACNAS + WCC + YCC’s three-part financial wellness series. Part 1 is focused on investing. Financial educator Karen Chan will be leading our session titled “Investing Made Simple,” where she will make stocks, bonds and mutual funds crystal clear using the story of a young company and its investors. We look forward to seeing you there!
Hey everyone, this Thursday, March 11, 2021 @ 6pm CT we will be co-hosting a virtual town hall about COVID-19 with other organizations on campus. This event was conceived with the goal to equip Black and Latinx communities with the latest information on the virus given that these groups have been disproportionately affected.
To kick off the semester we held a virtual Meet and Greet via Zoom to connect with our members both new and old! It was great getting to chat with everyone and we look forward to seeing you all during our future events this semester!
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the national SACNAS organization has decided to extend the deadline for research abstracts and travel awards to July 10, 2020 for students at all levels! If you missed the initial deadline there is still a chance to apply! However, applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis so it’s encouraged you still apply early.
We held our annual outreach event at the Champaign Public Library on February 22, 2020. This year we had demos related to 3D printing, in collaboration with the Illinois Geometry Lab. We had stations for learning about polymers and modeling, as well as a station with an actual 3D printer itself. Thank you to everyone who volunteered!
We held our first meeting of the Spring 2020 semester on February 5, 2020, where we shared our upcoming events for the month and held a short professional development session on using LinkedIn and Handshake. Thank you to everyone who showed up!
