BOOK EXCHANGE

It's that time of the year again - a new semester which means new classes with new books. To help make getting all those new books a little easier and a little cheaper, WEG is running its Book Exchange program again.

STUDY GROUPS

Doing problem sets and studying are always easier and more fun when done in groups. For that reason, WEG will be helping to organize study groups for its members in concentration classes. We will compile a list of the people interested in forming a study group for each class then e-mail the people in those classes with that info. After that it will be up to you to organize meeting times and places. We also need one person from each class to head up the group and take charge of organizing the meeting times and places for the group. If you are interested in joining a study group please e-mail us with the following info:

REMEMBER, THIS IS FOR EC, GOV, AND SOCIAL STUDIES CONCENTRATION CLASSES ONLY!

BIG SIS/LITTLE SIS MENTORING PROGRAM

Interested in participating in a mentorship program either as a mentor or a mentee? Then get involved in WEG's latest program! Big Sibs/Little Sibs is intended to pair up freshmen and sophomores with juniors and seniors in the same concentration and, if possible, with the same interests. However, if you are a sophomore and feel that you can be of help to a freshman or if you are a junior and would like a senior mentor for advice on theses or post graduate plans, let us know and we can arrange a mentorship for you as well. Upperclass mentors are especially needed to pass on their wisdom and experience to the underclassmen, so seniors and juniors please sign up! This program can't be a success without your help. If you are interested in the Big Sib/Little Sib mentorship program please e-mail us with the following information:
