First Annual ISyE PhD Tailgate Party

Primary tabs

Greetings ISyE Faculty, Staff, and fellow Ph.D. Students: It is my pleasure to formally invite you to our First Annual ISyE Ph.D. Tailgate Party! This event will take place prior to the Georgia Tech/Maryland football game on Thursday, October 23, from 3:30 - 6:30 P.M. on the lawn behind the Instructional Center. The purpose of this event is to begin developing a sense of community among the students, faculty, and staff within the ISyE Ph.D. program. Food will be served, but ALCOHOL WILL BE PROHIBITED. There will be games and activities to promote interaction among everyone. There is no charge for ISyE faculty, staff, and Ph.D. students; however, anyone who would like to bring family members or close friends can do so for a charge of $2.00 per person. If you would like to attend, please RSVP with the following information no later than Friday, October 17: Name: Characterization (i.e. Faculty, Staff, or Student): Area of Concentration (e.g. Optimization, Stochastics, EDA): Number of Years in the Program: Nationality: Advisor's Name (if Student): Students' Names (if Faculty): Number of Guests: Guest(s) Names: Relation to you: Please keep in mind that the purpose of this event is to promote community within the ISyE Ph.D. program, so we are asking that you restrict your guests to people closest to you (i.e. spouses, children, fiancee's, etc.) Although going to the football game is not a prerequisite for attending this event, we would like to get block seating for all of the Ph.D. students who are also planning to attend the Maryland game. If you would like to be a part of this group, please obtain your football coupon from the ticket office as soon as possible and give them to me by the RSVP deadline of Friday, October 17. My office is Room 310 in the old Management Building. If the door is locked, please write your name and email address on the back of your ticket and slide it under the door. In addition to this, anyone who would like to help plan games and activities should email David Huang at dhuang@isye.gatech.edu or Jennifer Chung at gt8838b@prism.gatech.edu by Friday, October 17. We are also seeking volunteers to help with food preparation. If you are willing to help, please contact Jim Luedtke at jluedtke@isye.gatech.edu. We would like to maintain a strong sense of diversity as we continue the planning process, so please do not hesitate to lend a helping hand, regardless of background or experience. Thank you very much, and I look forward to seeing you at the tailgate party!
