On Saturday, July 7th ABE GSA will be headed to Shades State Park (Waveland, IN) for a few hours of hiking. Shades State Park (~50 minute drive) has a lot of hiking in ravine beds as well as some beautiful gorges, so bring some comfortable shoes that you can hike with.
For the carpool we ask that you bring $3 to chip-in for gas with your driver and ABE GSA will be bringing drinks (water, maybe Gatorade/Powerade) and some snacks for the hike (trail mix, granola bars, etc.) as well as paying for the park entrance fee.
*Note: In July it gets hot and sunny, so make sure bring sunscreen and it may be helpful to also bring a personal water-bottle as well to keep hydrated.
October has been a very busy month for ABE Students! With intramural sports, our reverse trick-or-treating philanthropy event, and the usual birthday bashes and professional development seminars, we have had a great month!
To get familiar with campus, the participants in our mentoring program went on a photo scavenger hunt to find campus landmarks or unique things on campus. The three pairs that competed had a blast and we hope to make this an annual ABE-GSA Mentoring event.
ABE-GSA hosted our annual Welcome (Back) Social for all new and returning ABE Graduate Students directly following the end of new ABE grad orientation. Many new students and many returners turned out for a showing of more 40 people. What a great time!
