Tomorrow, PROMISE: Maryland’s AGEP will open the 10th annual session of the Summer Success Institute (SSI).  The Friday session of the SSI will be held on UMBC’s campus. Sessions for new and continuing students will be held on the 7th floor of the AOK Library, and sessions for postdocs, alumni, and participants of the Dissertation House will be held on the 3rd floor of the Commons.  Saturday’s session will be held at The Hotel at Arundel Preserve, in Hanover, Maryland. A bus will be available on Saturday to take students from UMBC to the hotel.

If your Friday schedule is tight, and you’re looking for a small window to participate, consider coming to the session for the “Success Equation” from 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM, which will be held on the 7th floor of the AOK Library. This session will discuss variables that all graduate students should consider as they progress through their studies. The “Success Equation” will be published in the September 2012 issue of “Optics and Photonics News.” You do not need to pre-register to attend the “Success Equation” session. 

If you plan to attend the Saturday session at the hotel, please read the information on the SSI website and register:
