If anyone has suggestions at that point, they should talk to Zach Nevin. ** Social Committee ** Holiday party suggestions? Sit-down dinner or heavy appetizers? Prefer more games or fewer? Gift swap/steal. Any suggestions, contact Chuck. ** MSTP Rep to GSS ** Nothing to report ** MSTP Rep to CME** CME meetings are, in fact, open to the public. Also, students.
