Hello everyone! We will be having an Alpha Epsilon Delta meeting this Thursday (January 22, 2015) at 6PM. ULM pharmacy students will be the guest speakers. They will talk about their experiences with the pharmacy program and give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. This particular meeting is open to anyone at Louisiana Tech. Therefore, encourage any of your friends who are not in AED to come for this night as everyone is welcome! **Dress professionally for all meetings**

If you are graduating this winter or spring quarter, please e-mail me or Logan Brown (lrb044@latech.edu) as soon as possible if you are interested in wearing AED cords for graduation. **Graduation cords apply to AED members that have paid dues for at least three years** We need to make sure that we have enough to give to you when the time comes. This will give us time to order more if needed.

Below are some meetings that AED has planned in the near future for you to mark on your calendars. We are still inviting speakers and definitely will be adding to this list.

Upcoming Meetings (Subject to Change):

-Dr. Christine Wright (Shreveport Occupational Therapy School) will be the guest speaker on February 5th at 6PM.
