Over the past few weeks the people of the Philippines have suffered from incredible natural disasters including an Earthquake in mid-October and more recently a Typhoon not a month later. Authorities estimated the death toll to be more than 10,000 although only 1,700 bodies have been recovered.
In order to aid efforts WE ARE URGENTLY ASKING YOU TO DONATE to the Office of Graduate Studies (Randell 240).
Collection was supposed to end on 11/15, however due to current events it has been extended.
Our support lies with the family and friends affected by the disaster. If there is anything additional you think GSA can do to help please do not hesitate to contact us.

Be a part of a DREXEL MOVEMENT as we raise awareness and education, living with and beyond cancer, staying mentally healthy, living with and beyond mental illness and research to achieve our vision of an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.
Movember encourages men to join the movement by growing a moustache for the 30-days of November. After on Movember.com, these generous Mo Bros start the month clean-shaven, then grow and groom their Mo (slang for moustache), asking friends and family to donate to their efforts. With their new moustaches, these Mo Bros bring much needed awareness to men’s health issues by prompting conversations wherever they go.
Movember’s not just for men. Mo Sistas are an important part of Movember’s success. Once, Mo Sistas raise funds and encourage the men in their lives to get involved. Essentially, Mo Sistas do everything that Mo Bros do, without a Mo.

The IEEE Philadelphia Section is holding elections for Section Chair; Section Vice Chair; Section Treasurer; and Section Secretary. This is the first time in at least 30 years that the Section holds an election (rather than submitting a pre-arranged slate of candidates for approval by the attendees of Section’s Night).
All IEEE Graduate Student Members, Members, Senior Members and Fellows are eligible to participate (look for an e-mail message from firstname.lastname@example.org titled “Election for the Philadelphia Section of IEEE Officers is Now Open”) The last day to vote is 15 November.
The IEEE Philadelphia Section plays an important role in the activities of the Student Branch and Student Chapters at Drexel, and has the potential to do a lot of good in the areas of education, professional activities, and attracting important conferences to the Philadelphia Area. We write to ask that those of you who received electronic ballots exercise their right to vote, thereby participating in charting the future course of the Section.
There are several candidates with a Drexel University connection who are running in this election; more information on the candidates is available here: http://library.constantcontact.com/download/get/file/1111316754496-31/Candidates+-+2013.pdf.
