Description of Regular Meetings/Activities

The activities of the club include inviting guest speakers of our choice, organizing social events for BMS graduate students (and faculty - if they want to participate) and assigning student mentors to incoming BMS MS and PhD students. We anticipate meeting a minimum of twice a semester; once at the beginning to decide on the events for that semester and closer to the end of the semester to evaluate our progress and get feedback. In addition to that, we will conduct additional meetings when necessary.
