Get involved with the PS Film Series

Hopefully everyone’s week has gotten off to a good start! I have an opportunity for a few people who are interested to get involved with the PS program more “hands on”. I am off to start a new project with the PS office called “Film Series”. It is a new part of the program that would engage both the academic enrichment side of our program and also just be an opportunity to relax, watch films, and catch up with members of our PS family. If you are interested in becoming a committee member to get the “Film Series” going or just interested in knowing more about it, please let me know at dina.mengesha@yahoo.com. Thanks and have a great rest of your week!
