1. Find an organization that
sounds interesting (preferably one having something to do with your
major or your future profession or specialization), attend a meeting, visit with student members and
observe what happens. As you become better acquainted with the
organization, you may wish to join and participate in some of its
activities. However, actually signing up, joining the
organization, or paying dues is COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY!
2. After your first visit, make a
list of the points you liked most and a list of things that were not as
appealing or that raised questions in your mind. If you expect to
return, make a plan for your next visit. What questions remain
unanswered? What can you expect to gain from this organization?
What can you expect to contribute? Bear in mind that the
contributions you make now will be the accomplishments you can boast
about in the future.
4. Turn in your report
by November 19,
2013 at 8:30 am, or before.
Carefully and fully complete all questions on the report form. This counts for 10% of your grade.
In writing this report you may collaborate with other members of the
class (in or out of your Work Group) who have joined or visited the same organization. However, each student
needs to turn in his or her own individual report, listing all
students who collaborated.
