Attire for meetings

“Good afternoon,

Another girl and I plan on attending tomorrow nights meeting and we weren’t sure exactly what we should wear! Whether it is just t shirts or a little more dressed up?

Thank you”

Attire for meetings is casual. You can wear anything that you would feel comfortable being seen wearing in public!

Joining

I just went to my first year advisor and she recommended I join AED! I unfortunately missed the first meeting, but I would love to come to the next! Please let me know how I can get involved with AED!

There are weekly meetings on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm in Lloyd 38. These meetings will often include a speaker, who might be an admissions representative, an MCAT preparation program representative, or a local health care professional.

Also, there is a list of initiatives listed on the website’s toolbar that provide contact information for their directors if any of them pique your interest.  Usually initiative directors will make announcements at meetings if there is something important that they have coming soon.

 

Graduation Cords

Do seniors who have been induced receive graduation cords for AED?

Yes, graduation cords will be available for $8. An e-mail will be sent to the list-serve with more details closer to the date!

Point Requirement

How are points tracked? Does every Tuesday meeting me attend equate to 1 point? Do the elementary school programs contribute to volunteer hours or points? If I am in “UA Discovery Buddies”, another elementary school program similar to “Do Not Try This At Home”, can those hours be counted?

Yes, each meeting is a point toward initiation. You may use the elementary school programs as volunteer hours. Both programs will be counted toward volunteering hours. 

Elementary School Programs

What were the names of the 3 programs that get involved with the elementary schools and do experiments with them? Also, who should I contact to get involved with that?

The two AED-affiliated Elementary school programs are Don’t Try This at Home and STEAM. You can contact Hunter Dean (hbdean@crimson.ua.edu) and Adam Shipley (bamaaedpresident@gmail.com) respectively to get more information about those programs. Also see the News and Events page to find the presentation from this week’s meeting (January 19) to get some info about what each program does specifically at their schools.

Spring T-Shirts

Will there be an opportunity to purchase t-shirt this spring semester?

Thanks!

T-shirts will be on sale again this semester, but we have not announced when that will be. Keep a lookout on here and at the meetings, we’ll also be getting the word out via our social media venues so make sure to give us a follow!

Joining

How can we join AED? Is there somewhere we should sign up or a meeting to attend?

If you didn’t find us at Get On Board Day August 27, you can come to our first meeting on Tuesday September 1 at 7pm in 214 Farrah Hall. It will be an introduction meeting to our officer team and an opportunity for open questions about the society and getting involved in our initiatives. Also, you can get added to our e-mail list so that you will be informed of all upcoming events throughout the year!
