5. GSA-GPSF LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS
The GSA is looking for volunteers to serve on the committee for its largest fundraising event, the 2010 GSA Graduate and Professional School Fair (GPSF). The 2010 GPSF will be on Sep 27, 2010, hosting graduate and professional schools from around the country. In order to increase the quality of the event, a small group of volunteers are needed to help with everything from updating the database of schools to helping with management on the day of the event. You do not have to be in Blacksburg during the summer to help- there are plenty of jobs which can be completed remotely. Please email the GPSF Chairs, Atieh Haghdoost and Mehdi Kargar, if you are interested in serving on the GPSF Committee.
