First Official New Voices Meeting of Fall 2013

To the New Voices blog followers –

Today we had our first official New Voices meeting. We were lucky enough to snag the conference room, which was really cool and nicely air conditioned.

We got some new people interested in being involved and on the committee. But if you couldn’t make it (we only had 3 new people, but we had 30 people interested o the list), please feel free to contact us and let us know of your interest in being involved. We need to replace most of our committee next year and we are excited to show any new people the ropes.

Below are the minutes from the meeting, so you can follow along. Enjoy!

Orientation Day Meeting Notes

So we don’t usually put our meeting minutes up here on the blog. Mostly that has to do with the fact that we have no secretary. New Grad students – wanna volunteer??

It is important to note however, that we are going to have a back to school bake sale at the end of September. We need people to get involved.

Also – our first official meeting of the semester, where YOU are invited to get involved as much or as little as you would like, is coming up.

September 11th – 10AM – in the Grad Lounge – 9th floor of Langdale Hall

Please contact us at if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments.

Bake Sale – NO NUTS!

Next week is the New Voices annual bake sale – get ready… it’s candy season.

In the spirit of this supernatural holiday… I already know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “How can I be involved?”

Check out this flier:

You may have seen the flier up in the copy room or in the Writing Studio. You would have to write down the URL to sign up for baking or table manning (or womanning). If writing down URLs to lose later is not your bag, you can just click this link:

And zowey! You’re helping!

So… let’s say baking is not your thing, and you don’t really have time to man a table. Come by the table and buy a treat! Send your students by! Tell your classes!

We appreciate any support you can give. Please come out and share the sugar-love.

See you there!

Everybody Loves Cake

Hey New Voices blog readers!
Our last meeting was a success – we got two new faces wanting to help out. Thanks Zack and Laurie!

A couple of things you might need/want to know:

We are going to have a cake raffle on what is now called Patriot Day Рyou may all know it as 9/11. It will be held all day on the 9th floor of GCB and we  will be raffling off a red/white/blue patriotic cake. So come buy and see us, purchase a ticket, and support New Voices.

Also, we will be holding the annual bake sale the week before Halloween. It will follow our monsters theme. We will be having it 4 days in a row October 22nd – 25th in the courtyard in front of the library. If you want to bake for us… WE NEED YOU!!

If you want to help, or bake, or anything – please come to our next meeting on Wednesday September 19th @ 4PM in Troy Moore Library.
