Students

There are some really great activities planned for students at the 2014 meeting.

If you haven’t booked your travel yet, make sure you plan to arrive by Sunday!  Sunday night there will be a Welcome Social for students only at 7pm.  This event happens at Sumbawa Beach Club – watching the sunset on the waves, eating tacos, enjoying drinks and new friends will be a great way to kick off the meeting.

All day Monday is the 5th Annual Student Colloquium, hosted by the new UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México) Student Subunit!  The day starts at 9am with a welcome presentation by WDAFS president, Pam Sponholtz.  The remainder of the day, students will have the option of attending presentations of research by other students or attending various workshops on career development.  After lunch, there will be a presentation by Kelly F. Millenbach, followed by more presentations and workshops.  From 5—7pm, there will be a mentoring/poster session.

On Tuesday evening, all students and professionals are invited to the student social at Senior Frogs, next door to the hotel.  We’ll have food, drinks, and SALSA DANCE LESSONS will be provided by Cal-Neva President, Jim Hobbs and his lovely partner.  This social is open to all students and professionals attending the annual meeting.

If you register for the entire annual meeting, there is no additional charge to attend the Colloquium.  If you plan to come for the colloquium only, the cost is $40.  Register here: https://wdmeeting2014.wordpress.com/registration/
