Nine Irish Social

This Friday (8/31), we will be having our social gathering at Nine Irish Brothers (Wabash Landing) at 7:00 pm- roughly 9:00, or however long we can stay. This is a great chance to catch up with your fellow ABE students after the summer as well as for new and returning students to get to know each other. ABE GSA will be ordering appetizers for the group, but anything else you may want to order is at personal cost. We will have the back patio reserved for the event.
Look forward to seeing you there!!!

ABE-GSA Canoeing Trip

On Saturday, August 11th, ABE GSA will be going on a canoeing trip near Delphi, IN (~25 minute drive). We will be spend 2 hours canoeing on the Tippecanoe River with a morning start time (sometime around 10-11am). We would need to leave campus roughly an hour before our start time to drive and go through a brief session with the canoe instructor.

GSA will be covering the canoeing cost for ABE Graduate students only, but if more than 20 students sign-up the cost will be $5 per student. For family/significant others, GSA will not cover the cost ($15/per canoe for adults; child cost vary with age) but they are free to join the group. Canoes spots will be first-come, first-serve, but there should be enough canoes available.

If interested in attending, please fill out the attached survey for attendance purposes and organizing a carpool. https://goo.gl/forms/ncDZ530YLoURWUFX2

For the carpool we ask that you bring $1 or 2 to chip-in for gas with your driver.

*Note: It could be hot and sunny, so make sure bring sunscreen and some water to keep hydrated. GSA will also bring some bottles of water as well.

For any questions, please email mills137@purdue.edu.

We hope to see you there!
