Hey all, Stressful times calls for some relaxing. Yes, it is finals week but make sure to give yourself a study break once in a while. Go out for a walk, get together with friends for a snack, and read the ECAASU digest. Just make sure to get yourself out of the library. Here is the final stretch. Good luck to all of you out there on your finals and projects.
Announcements: 1. ECAASU Campus Ambassadors 2. ECAASU Conference at Duke University: Regular Registration 3. [NYC] Vigil & March for Private Danny Chen 4. [DC] Youth Leadership Briefing at the White House [MUST RSVP]
The ambassador position is to help ECAASU build up a network across the East Coast amongst student leaders. At the same time, the program is an opportunity for people to step up and be active community members on the East Coast. In a way, it is very similar to a publicity position in which we hope ambassadors will help us spread the news about ECAASU events (Fall Campus Tour, Spring Conference, etc.) to your campus community. If you would like to join the program and/or work on new ideas for the program, check this out.
Dr. Elaine Kim will be their Keynote Speaker for the event. If you are interested in attending, please RSVPhere. If you are also interested in submitting your work, please send it to email@example.com. For questions or concerns, please email Susan Hirai at firstname.lastname@example.org.
