The University of North Texas hosted the first regional conference of 2011 in Denton, TX, providing an opportunity for student leaders, faculty and administrators to discuss issues impacting graduate and professional students. The weekend was filled with fun, valuable information, and a great time to network and develop lasting relationships.
The conference began with a casual hamburger dinner out by the pool on Friday night. A tight but fun schedule was in store all day Saturday, many topics that were discussed included, Time Management, International Students, GSC’s becoming self sufficient. Saturday was topped off with a wonderful meal at Vigne Wine Shop & Delicatessen and a night out on the town. The conference ended with the election of a new six member board for the South-Central region on Sunday morning.
Congratulations goes out to DiDi McCann SC Regional Chair, Eteri Svanidze SC Regional Vice-Chair, Tom Henry SC Regional Director of Outreach, Addy Meira SC Regional Director of Communications, Luke Russell SC Regional Legislative Concerns and Kristofferson Culmer SC Regional International Student Concerns.
