SCC Global Affairs Center and WP&DSS student club hosting brown-bag discussions on global economic crisis

Every morning you wake up and hear more sobering news about the state of our economy, wondering if this is really the worst it's been since the Great Depression and how we can get out this mess. You now have a chance to share your concerns and explore solutions in our first brown-bag discussion, presented by Professor Ken Lawson, Robert Francis and Larry Fuell who will offer remarks comparing "Political and Economic Circumstances at the Time of the Great Depression and Now" followed by a Q&A session. Please invite your friends to join this discussion too. :-p

If you will be looking for jobs rather than transferring out, YOU should love to know more about the current economic downturn, don't you?

Date: Thursday - Feb 26
Time: 12:30 - 1:30 PM
Venue: Rm 1010, Board Room in the Admin. building (1000)

Thank you & all the events listed above are just great! DON'T miss any chance to keep yourself updated in SCC.

Information Meeting - Trip to Bali, Indonesia (LAST CALL)

Hi all,

GDP club will hold another and the last information meeting for the study-abroad trip to Bali, Indonesia. The purposes of the trip are basically to visit local non-profit organizations in order to be informed how Microfinance can truly help with the poor to fight against with global poverty. This is an absolute unique chance in your college experience to truly engage and learn about how poverty is affecting billions of people’s lives and for you to make a difference for others but also yourself.

Once again, all related documents are available under "Bali Trip Committee". "MUST-Read Handout" is new and simply written in bullet points; it does cover all main ideas from the rest of the documents. Please spend couple minutes on them to see if there is any question and be ready to discuss the detail on Monday, February 9th, 12:30pm, at Rm. 9201 (the PUB).

** For those who can't make to the session, please email to or come to GDP club weekly meetings, so that your questions will be answered. **

To receive the $25, you have to register with Think MTV(link) and open an account at non-profit organization - Kiva(link).
