Did you miss our general meetings
on September 2nd? Don't worry!
here for the agenda & notes from the meeting.
DEADLINE: Mentorship applications
Don't forget that the deadline for turning in
your application for our mentorship program that links 1Ls with upper-class
students is Friday, September 11th.
Applications should be returned to the WIL mailbox on the 2nd floor.
If possible, matches will be made based on area(s) of interest. This
is a great way for 1Ls to meet a student that has been through life as
a first-year student at Chicago-Kent and who will be available to answer
questions or just talk about whatever issues come up in their lives.
If you have any questions about this program, please contact Heather Fritsch,
Mentoship Coordinator, at email@example.com.
1Ls, get involved with WIL by
becoming a 1L Representative!
Applications will be available on the WIL bulletin
board after Tuesday, September 8th for the 1L Representative positions.
There are two positions, one per division (day and evening). 1L Reps
are members of the WIL executive board and get directly involved in planning
programs and events for the coming year. If you're interested in
running for these positions, pick up an application and return it to the
WIL mailbox on the 2nd floor by 5:00 p.m.
on Friday, September 18th. If you have
any questions about these positions, please do not hesitate to contact
any member of the executive board or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

to include information on our organizational goals, upcoming program, mentorship
programs, WIL library and outline bank, executive board, and links of interest.
But we have not only information about WIL events and programs, but also
information about events and organizations throughout the Chicagoland area
that might be of interest to our members.
But we need your help! If you know of an
upcoming event or an organization that might be of interest to our members,
please e-mail the details to Charis Runnels (email@example.com)
