Welcome to week 2 of Brain and Behavior. Last organ system! We are so close.
1. Y2Q Survey – Only 37.4% of our class responded. We need at least 80% response rate so please search your email inbox for “Y2Q” and complete the survey. It really isn’t that long, and it’s a completely anonymous way to let the administration know how you think our school is doing.
2. Proof that surveys are useful – Thanks to those of you who filled out the Student Services Satisfaction Survey. The Deans had a meeting with representatives from Facilities yesterday, and the temperature in the D lecture halls and the TBL space is being addressed!
For the TBL space, things will be handled by the Office of Medical Education.
For the D lecture halls, please contact me if you attend lecture 100% of the time and are willing to be in charge of the thermostat. Given a consensus from class goers, the thermostat will be able to be adjusted between 70 and 74 (it was previously locked at 72).
3. Flu Shots – It is that time of the year. Until October 31st, you can get your flu shots at the Student Health Clinic in the Aston Building. My brother has the flu right now and (I imagine) he wishes he had listened to his big sister. Don’t be like my brother. Get your flu shot (plus in your case, it’s mandatory).
4. Anonymous feedback form – If there is anything you would like us to change or work on without us knowing who the suggestion came from, please fill out this anonymous feedback form.
5. Student of the Week – Learn more about Naomi Freeman of Cary College.
6. Carter Blood Drive – The PDA Outreach Committee and medical school is hosting Carter Blood Drive this October. It will be on South Campus, under the library stairwell from 10:00 AM to 4:00PM. They have two dates – October 18, 2017 and October 19, 2017.
They need some volunteers to sign-up donors and greet them. You can come whenever you have some free time and for any duration of time your schedule allows and help them.
As always, please do let us know if you have any questions and/comments,
Clementine and Umaru
