CLUBS OF CONGRESS
On February 11, 2010 the Congress of clubs met for its semester meeting. The organization delegate, Megan Rosenquist attended and spoke on the behalf of our organization. At the club she had the pleasure to hear what was going on in other organizations of campus. Many of the clubs were familiar and there were also a few new ones.
At the meeting there is an overall consensus that many of the clubs want to get to know the other clubs and want to socialize and network amongst each other. Many of the organizations would also like to work together and help out with many community projects. With that statement it was brought up that maybe a networking and social meeting should be held. More information about what is going on campus and clubs is obtained by attending the Student Government meetings, but many of the clubs want a more informal event. The student government also urged for more student body and club representation at the Student Government meetings which are held every other Thursday (unless campus-wide special events are scheduled) at 12:30pm in COT 100.
The last topic that was discussed was for the creation of a student committee that would collaborate on doing unique things in the community. It would be a committee outreach program, that would participate in town hall meetings and discuss ideas and programs that would branch into the local community. This committee is to be composed of individuals who want to reach out and connect with the community and show all the LSC-Kingwood has to offer and more. The first Student Open Forum committee meeting will be this Wednesday, February 16, 2011. It will be held from 1:30pm to 2:30pm. For more information send firstname.lastname@example.org
GUEST SPEAKERS Each month our student chapter has the opportunity of being introduced to talented professionals in the design field. We were honored to have Diana Walker, former ASID President of the Texas Gulf Coast, speak to us about her professional experiences and tips for success including money, leadership, marketing, education, and employment. Our chapter even participated in a group demonstration to learn about various aspects of the design business. One piece of advice that will truly be our guidance will to remember to "bring a skill to a firm that you can leave behind and leave an impact". Our student chapter also had the pleasure of meeting with Valerie Jones, a commercial and residential designer who owns her own company Ivory and Aubergine. During her presentation, our chapter viewed her design portfolio which included pictures of previous works such as designs of Rockdale High School, and her current project, San Jacinto College. Valerie Jones was also able to connect with the chapter on a different level in explaining the transition from school to the real world.
