    • Emailed and called the leader of the robotics coalition in Philly  (Michael Johnson)
      • Said it was hard for schools to sched field trip without enough time and without specifics
      • We should have a specific date, to make their life much easier
      • Otherwise they might just not respond
      • Should also contact John Rueda (?)
      • Robotics season starting soon
      • If any stwingers are interested in robotics, a mentoring system could be set up (yikes)
      • Skipping a year probably isnt a great idea
        • For the future, fall?
          • Schedule at least a month in advance next time
        • Attendance?
          • Advertise it as a sciencey roboticsy thing for the university
    • Alum will be contacted this week
    • Michael said there was a robotics event soon, suggested they be combined
    • Next steps:
      • Set date, time

    • i think its like 4/8, 4/10, and 4/17 or something along those lines
    • – what i have been up to
    • Elijah’s solution: Follow their format, same stwing event three days in a row :thumbsup:      
    • Except the people haven’t replied to my email yet but there is a chance it was sent to the wrong email so I resent it earlier today to a different one (quakerdays@upenn.edu vs quakerdays@admissions.upenn.edu)
    • :thumbsup:

Freshman Rep

  • Worth it?
    • Need to assign specific roles
    • Dealing with off-floor engagement?
      • Not a great idea?
      • Probably better to have upperclassmen reach down
      • How would they even know who the upperclassmen are
    • Could strengthen connections between freshman
      • More likely to attend events if their friend is
    • Could work as apprentice
    • Might be nice because
    • History has shown that a vigourous freshman rep
      • Increases class participation
      • Stays involved themselves, and even stays on continuum and on floor
  • Not worth it
    • No one’s really gonna know anyone
      • Well if its a month in, people with know people
      • First GBM
    • In the past pretty useless (f u man)
      • Well
      • We just need to give them specific duties
    • Still adjusting to university life, too must pressure?
    • Maybe instead just have coffee chats, things like that

A10DANCE: ‘Lijah, Mir&a, Little Dickie, Raf “McDreamy” Gehrke, Lovely Annajune, Carly Cahtellahhhhh, Eric Q-t, makaaaaaahriosssss, Sweet Caroline, Chris Denq, Mark Love it!, Anusha Sri-MOM, Kaiser Wilhelm

SUBCOMMITTEES:

    • If you don’t have one yet, meet w Elijah

      • But not a meeting
    • Erin
      • Annajune
      • Tell Elijah
    • Anusha
      • Sent out a whentomeet
      • No one filled it out ;( like if you cry everytime

GBM ON WEDNESDAY:

  • Rangle up the subcommittee
  • Make sure everyone’s email is set up
  • Maki
    • Ready to set up the laptop
    • Maki doesn’t think anyone will fill it out
    • No snackos until you fill it out
  • Submissions for by-law changes
    • One response (thx Caroline)
    • We should bump it again
  • Round Robin– everyone makes their own slides– Maki will set this up

PROJECTS:

  • Having people actually show up to the blimp room, for one
  • Prepare now so during NSO we can wow people with our new project
  • Eric
    • Has a cool project going on
    • Btw ‘lijah is a little BITCH
    • Pranav was j chillin
  • Important to note that this is an ancient stwing tradition, not just spur of the moment
  • Next year, should be introduced during NSO
    • Will help freshies to associate the program with doing projects
    • Any other plans? We gonna blow some cash?
  • Marketing the panel project?
    • We should probably to finish something first for there to be something to be interested in – Eric Q-t
    • But also it would help to have people to work on it
    • Eric Q-t can handle it
    • 23in x 13in
  • Tinkering Times
    • Mostly Krimo’s idea, Miranda is a conduit
    • Small out of the box projects
    • Like bug bots, take people no more than an hour to do
    • Like a study break
    • General “okay” consensus
  • Subcommittees should be a thing → Raf ←
    • He’ll try again
    • We had four projects, but only two people came
    • Freshies are too busy
      • Should focus on targeting the freshman
      • Before they’re swamped, more when they’ve just started to get marshy
      • Raf will try sketching a general idea– like SPrIng almost?
      • For now, maybe we just let Erics idea flourish?

ROBOTICS FAIR

  • Setting the date and time
    • Hard because he has no response
    • Doesn’t know how much money, or where to put people
  • Sent emails to 20 schools
    • No responsives
    • Jorge says it’ll take some time
    • Kai’ll give it a week
  • Past
    • Usually request around $2000
      • If we don’t get the full amt, that’s chill
      • We have lots of leftover robotics crap, and robotics faculty
    • For food, t-shirts, etc
    • Contact GRASP, ask Maki, Miranda
  • If no high schools show up
    • Just make it an undergrad fair?
    • Maki’s plan
      • Split it up into a series of dinner talks instead
      • Sort of like what Richard does, but with robotics
    • Sounds sort of like a misappropriation of funds
      • Instead just cancel it
      • Say that from the get go
    • Hard to get people to show up
      • We need intense marketing
      • But also, no one will show…
    • Have you talked to Sadat?
      • Who? Yeah
      • Also, Tyler is now non-responsive
      • Micah’s on it
      • ‘Lijah says Tyler is ex-communicated
  • Made a subcommittee
    • Wics sometimes helps out
    • Kami said she’ll help w shirts and shit
    • Kai is going to meet with them individually
    • ‘Lijah wants to meet with Kai too
    • Jess says she has ideas too, talk to her, for advertising
    • Kai is going to wait for some replies
    • Talk to Micah too

FRESHMAN REPRESENTATIVE

  • Should we introduce it again?
  • Usually an odd thing– basically a first week’s popularity contest
  • Better to have a crummy fresh rep than not one at all
  • Roles
    • Just wait and watch continuum?
    • Can also give input on the mindset of the babies
    • Also potentially apprenticeship for other continuum roles
    • But maybe if they don’t have a clear reason to be there, they just won’t come
    • They need to have responsibilities

UPPERCLASSMEN:

  • Literally all we ask is presence
  • Big-Little system
    • Meet every once in a while
    • Maybe a little bit of mentoring
    • Make appointments, opt-in
  • But
    • How is decided?
    • Like Sorority
    • Lots of twins?
    • Is this a final assignment?
      • This was the idea
      • They get paired up at the beginning
      • Contact info shared
      • Can meet or talk at own volition
  • Similar idea to tea-time
    • On a request basis?
    • Everyone shoved their contact information into a file
    • Asks weekly or so if you’d like to get coffee or tea with someone
    • You can say yes, or no
  • Might could be helped by the RA
    • Is this allowed?
    • Uh duh, we do whatever the fuck we want – Sweet(?) Caroline
    • Except giving out shit like phone numbers (bc they don’t have it)
    • Erin– can put out a google form in the newsletter
    • Beginning of next year
  • More social events at the beginning

BY-LAW REVISIONS:

  • Only one suggestion
  • Can we meet before?
    • To discuss and stuff
    • Sounds like a no though…
  • Examples
    • Giving up fake character names
      • Should be left up to the board member
      • Maybe not a great idea
    • Just confusing
  • ‘Lijah’s gonna get to work on a presentation

ROUND ROBIN

  • Anusha has made a sick when to meet
  • Richard has email profs
  • Kai: template to contact faculty and raise funds
  • Erin: still updating website
  • Raf: set up subbie and organize blimp room
  • Maki: email fixing and sign up sheet, and help kai w the robotics fair, and talk w Brian about actually fixing the server

FINAL REMINDERS: finalize subcommittee plans and tell Elijah!

2-11-19

      • Vogue. GQ. Swimsuits. STWing.
    • Posters and Shit!!! Git to it!!!
  • Maki
    • Are people on the listserv?
    • Problem
      • We want stwingers to sign up for force so we can contact them after they graduate, when their upenn emails expire
      • No one has any idea how to manage their force accounts
      • This would be dope shit to bring up at the GBM
        • But also we should all connect the force accounts to people’s penn accounts
        • Then Maki can switch it to the alumni email
        • Still should be brought up at the GBM with the laptop and stuff to try to fix it for this year
          • Lots of people forgot their force accounts
          • We should just make it their pennkey tbh
          • What maki’s gonna do probably
            • School email
            • Remember force username
              • Yes: cool
              • No: create new user with their pennkey
      • Maki just needs to push extra hard at the beginning of the year
      • And push extra hard at the end of the year to round up the leaving seniors (banquet? Or talk in may since accounts don’t expire until october)
  • Everyone’s leaving
    • Stwing has tried to make a colony in the past
      • Tyler Durkin. Interesting. Impact?
        • He was on continuum, but he left and not a lot happened
        • Maki remembers he did a bit
        • But as Gandalf, he basically diddly poop :/
      • Probably gonna fail again, no fancy language needed, so let’s plan
        • Want to do research on the past STWolony to the High Rises– how’d it turn out
          • There needs to be conditions
          • People can’t just go and completely separate
        • If they stop showing up, then they’re not in
          • We can auto geezer chat them if they’re gone for a semester or more (originally intended for alumni)
          • I guess we don’t want them anyways? (IDK, I feel like we should avoid this entirely)
          • At least with the geezer newsletter they still update
          • Harsher?
            • Probation
            • Immediately booted, have to ask to come back
        • Choices
          • Keep them
          • Geezers
          • Probation
        • How to define STWing
          • By the people in the listserv? ^
          • By the people on floor?
            • Not everyone can stay
            • We don’t want a last semester, where we have to boot people
            • Rip Shriyash, Hunter
            • Most important thing is creating a community for the freshman
              • This means connecting them to the upperclassmen
              • Upperclassmen have to be involved
            • I feel like I’m being punished for leaving. We can’t all be RAs. 🙁
          • Problem is, we don’t have a concrete list of people actually involved with the program if anyone asks
          • Let’s put this off for a bit (and maybe cool down a bit before we duke it out) pls
    • I’m scared
  • BY-LAWS
    • Increase awareness
      • Send it out to all of STWing, ask for q, comments, concerns
      • Continuum reviews the notes
    • Re-go over it at the GBM
      • Maybe don’t advertise it as revisatory bc people will vote and most people will just vote yes
      • Important thing to remember: Continuum is a filter for the dumb shit – Carly
      • “What Carly said… is nails… the hammer on the head of the nail.” -Elijah 2019
  • Floor theme
    • Cut it…… cut it……  yikie — Sweet Caroline, so much work for her
    • Probably no reason to discuss floor themes rn bc it will take forever
    • Let’s keep pushing it off until March
      • But wait Minecraft??
      • Send out a google form to continuum to submit ideas for the theme
      • Also set time limits for deliberation
  • NSO subcommittees
    • CORNER BABY QUAKERS
    • Maybe against the rules
    • Laws are made to keep the weak in line, not to stop the strong from prevailing

  • Pigeons
  • String and Cans
  • Chris suggests Slack
  • Discord? (Mixed reviews)
    • Discord would’ve had to been promoted by RAGAs
    • It wasn’t
  • Chris declares hard veto against groupme
    • Micah concurs: hard to find links n stuff
    • Slack and discord is better
  • VOTE: Slack or discord
    • In favor of Slack: 5
    • Otherwise: 0? Ok

SUBCOMMITTEES:

  • To be brought up at next GBM? Micah?
    • Needs to be made ASAP (Maki agrees)
    • Also helpful for those whose jobs are hard or confusing
    • Or people can reach out for committees individually
  • Elijah agrees with ASAP
    • How to reach out?
    • Who knows?
    • Sounds like a job for… KATARA (that me)
  • Central Calendar:
    • Let’s revive
    • Put subcommittee meetings on there
  • Subcommittee meeting time advertised via listserv, group me, discord, etc
  • Emphasis on Robotics Fair (v important)
    • Should be specific for time being?
    • Just call it Gandalf subcommittee

      • Eric: But like maybe do bc he answered me yikes
    • Questions about the cost:
      • Rental, catering, DJ, av, etc
      • Catering needs to be specific? Not usually
      • Diamond Club

        • One might be too small
        • One might be too big if not a lot of people show up
  • Elijah: Anusha u  gud?
  • Anusha: (not convincingly) yes.

RESEARCH COLLOQUIUM:

  • Gather around and talk about anything
  • Last year
    • A little too long. Maybe shorter snippets.
    • Not a lot of people
    • Try to make it more fun
  • Maybe rename to Stwing talks? Closer to Tedx? Sounds too formal for fun topics
  • Incentives??
    • No
    • Supposed to be a service to people presenting, experience

    • 10,000 stwing points to Gryffindor!!!!
    • Old STWing shirts as prizes, mugs? Dinner? Contest?

STWING GOES OUTSIDE:

  • RAGAs got it
  • Can you imagine? The sun? Wow

RUDE SILVERBERG

  • Only if we can do Robotics fair
  • Usually we use extra parts from there anyways
  • Get back to it later

PRE-PROFESSIONAL EVENTS THOUGHTS

  • Wtf is that
    • Events catered to STEM industry
    • Dinner discussions, like WICS, or coding sessions, etc
  • Objections by Miranda
    • Enough of that through engineering
    • Right now, we encourage participation of people who have a more casual interest in STEM and can explore that more casually outside of classes
  • Rebuttal by Maki
    • Can be a healthy balance
    • Might help freshman for some pre-prof events
    • WICS has expressed interest in a STWICS collab project
  • Note by CARLY:
    • Lean towards older STWingers
    • Give anecdotes
    • Resume workshops
  • Purpose?
    • To keep pre-prof freshman on floor
    • And to give students help from upper-classmen they know
  • Free for coffee
    • Tea w Stwingers (?)
    • Meet via an app or something
    • Networking with upperclassmen
    • Or literally just meet an old STWinger once

STWING CONVOCATION:

  • What is it
    • Beginning of the year next year
    • Like a banquet but at the beginning of the year, a STWelcome, and less formal
    • Catered Dinner
    • People come talk to the newbies
    • Subcommittee assignments like sorting hat
      • Maybe too soon?
      • Weird to introduce people that we will never see again…
      • We’ll get back to this
  • Eric Q-t: Just turn it into games and drugs
  • Anusha, are you interested in starting this w your subcommittee?
    • Done over the summer?
    • We’ll talk more about this later, you don’t have to answer so soon

RICHARD CLARIFICATION:

  • Reaching out is maybe a good idea
  • Chris was contacted by a baby asking about gender, race, socio-economic levels…
  • Chris used the word “female” …ew

SLACK:

  • Will be sent out ASAP

CHRONOLOGY OF STWING

  • Miranda, legitimate interest?
  • Miranda: not my job
  • Maki: technically my job?

ATTENDANCE

  • LISTSERV to help with attendance (a 10 dance)
  • Maki will work on calendar, like google calendar
  • Website should feature pictures of games and stuff, more fun stuff
    • Designated photo-taker
    • One stwing point for every picture
    • Room selection points… damn
  • More like or Parl subcommittee
  • Posters
    • Assign date early on
    • Have a group design separate GBM posters (different groups each time)
    • Eric: Index card sized posters, slap them on doors (unanimous YEAH)
    • Miranda: We should assign all the GBM dates, instead of Continuum
      • Parl subcom
      • We used to have a form, always been bad
      • GBM can’t be the same day of the week every time (so can’t just be 2nd day of month or something
  • Word of mouth is also powerful

REMINDER: everyone please read by-laws.

NEXT MEETING: What does it mean to be a STWinger? Tune in next time to find out!
