The annual event, to help First Years meet each other and other graduate students had close to 100 attendees last year. There will be snacks & beverages provided.

Iota Sigma Pi is a national honors society and was founded at Berkeley, the Hydrogen Chapter, in 1902. The organization highlights the accomplishments of female chemists through their awards and promotes friendship and mentorship of female chemists of all levels. This year, the Hydrogen Chapter had three national award winners- Professor Michelle Chang (Agnes Fay Morgan Research Award), graduate student Leah Rubin (Members-at-Large Re-Entry Award), and undergraduate student Kaitlyn Weeber (Gladys Anderson Emerson Scholarship). The 2014 National Triennial Convention will be hosted by the Hydrogen Chapter in Berkeley.

For more information, email iotasigmapi@gmail.com. If you are interested in becoming a member of ISP, membership criteria are here and a Fall Induction will be held in early December.

Every week, Piper will highlight an event or an organization on or near campus that is of interest to the Berkeley Science Review audience.
