ASME Newsletter — 10/5

General Announcements

Midterms Incoming!
Hopefully you’re all being more proactive about your coming midterms than I’ve been!  Study up and be the curve killers.  If you don’t want to do that, check out our calendar and see what’s coming up that you can use to distract yourself from the pain. As a reminder, you can click on event titles to save them directly to your calendar!

Student Center Space
Don’t forget that we’ve got a space over in the student center for ASME members.  This is a good place to check out what other university clubs are around as well as meet people in those different organizations.  Sometimes it’s quiet, sometimes not.  Go check it out and use our sign in sheet at the desk so that we can make sure that we keep the space for those who want to use it.  We need a minimum of 10 hours per week to keep the space for ourselves or it’ll get reallocated to another club.  Don’t know where it is?  Check out this video!  They start us off on that path between the UC and Student Center near the library.

Don’t Abuse the Lounge
The ASME lounge is there for all of us to use to make our day more comfortable whether you go for the free coffee or the snacks or just to hang out.  There is no maid service!  The building cleaners will empty our trash cans and that’s it, so please make sure that you get your trash into one of them!  It’s disgusting to find half cups of cold coffee from who knows when, empty food wrappers, and used napkins all over the lounge.  Please throw your trash away and keep the lounge clean!

If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball!  Just kidding, no wrenches will be thrown.  SASE and ASME are trying to form up a couple of teams for the dodgeball tournament and need more people to join up.  There’s a sign up sheet in the lounge on a whiteboard but you can also email your info to the officer crew at  Check it out before the teams fill up!
