The TMS Student/Faculty Mixer is a good, old-fashioned beach party. Beer,* soft drinks, and snacks will be provided. All attendees should come in beach attire, prepared for an evening full of fun! We'll dance to the D.J. and have plenty of prizes. Watch your student chapter mail for further details. Come, meet some old friends and make some new ones.


Students have the opportunity to partially defray their conference expenses by serving as session monitors. Monitors are responsible for assisting the session chair, recording session attendance and assisting with audio/visual equipment. All monitors must report to the Authors' Coffee each morning of their scheduled sessions. Monitors' positions are limited and will be assigned on a first-come basis. To obtain work forms and schedule, contact Peggy Weiss at the Authors' Coffee.
