U-ACCESS Food Drive, Presentation Club, and MAP Events Week of 9/26

Happy Friday all,

Please see below for this week’s announcements:

  1. The Undergraduate Program Office will be hosting a food drive for the U-ACCESS Food Pantry starting 9/26/16 and culminating at the MOST Conference on 10/1/16. 9/30/16 will be the last day to donate food in the Undergraduate Program Office. The purpose of the U-ACCESS Food Pantry is to supplement the food supply for any UMass Boston students who may be experiencing hunger and struggling to buy food. Please see the attached flier for more information on how to earn a MAP mile for donating at least five items. If you are a student who has utilized U-ACCESS, you will gain access to the MAP mile via the U-ACCESS office in a confidential manner.
  2. You are invited by the Presentation Club!

    Please join us for the first in a series of presentation workshops.

    Location: McCormack 5th Floor, room 211 — Accounting & Finance Conference Room

    Targeting Audience:

    • Students interested in improving their presentation skills by practicing.
