Re: [SJSU_MURPs] Internship announcement
- Kristi - excellent posting for the UPC. Thanks!
FYI, we've 'cleansed' the UPC bulletin board in the lounge area - I
encourage anyone to stop by and place formal listings there - I'll be
posting this announcement under employment/internships, but the official
notices are more eye-catchy.
I posted our last meeting notice there and new students have asked about the
UPC after reading from the board!
