Thanks to everyone who came out to our first meeting on Monday! We really
loved the interest and energy everyone had to get involved.

First I'd like to highlight our upcoming events:

   - *Friday, Sept. 13* -- *A New Energy Future*
      - The Purdue Institute for Civic Communication is hosting a forum
      entitled *"A New Energy Future"* in *Loeb Hall*, starting at *1:30PM*.
      There's more info in the attached PDF -- it sounds really cool!
Some of the
      ESW officers will be going, so if you're interested in meeting up to go
      together, send me an email!
   - *Sunday, Sept. 15* -- *Noms and Games* --
      - Meet at the *intramural fields* across from Shreve at *4PM*. Bring
      a Frisbee, soccer ball, baseball, or whatever fun things you have in your
      room and come hang out and play games with us! Afterwards, we'll
carpool to
      get food. For all you living in dorms, it's a Sunday night! In
case of bad
      weather, we'll move into the co-rec and snag a gym to play in.
   - *Monday, Sept. 16* --* Webinar and Resume/Interview Workshop*
      - We will be meeting at *6:30PM* in *ME 1051* to have a short
      workshop on resumes and interviews for some last-minute IR prep! At 7PM,
      ESW National has a webinar on project management, so we'll watch
that once
      it starts up too. We'll have popcorn!
