Join us Sunday, April 14 as we serve dinner to 30 - 35 people at the Ronald McDonald House. We're looking for 8 - 10 volunteers who are willing to prepare a meal and spend a few hours helping us. Email email@example.com to participate!
Even you can't come or prepare a dish, you can still help! We're collecting items to donate to the Ronald McDonald House and their Family Room located at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. Items for donation include individual-serving foods, including foods that can be heated in a microwave, paper goods, and cleaning items. A complete list of items can be found here: House and Family Room.
Donation boxes will be located outside the Grad Pad and Dr. Alexander’s office (Barbara Massey Hall, Room 447) until April 12.
What does your online image say about you?
CNN reports that upwards of 70% of US business managers have chosen not to hire a potential job candidate based on unflattering images of the candidate online. Don't let this happen to you!
All Massey Graduate Students are invited to attend a professional photography session April 16-17 from 4:30-6 p.m. Sessions will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Come dressed to impress in your best suit and tie!
Specific location details to follow. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 12 so that we may estimate how many people to expect.
"The donation drive went well, and the Grad Council along with the Salvation Army are very grateful to all those who graciously donated items to a great cause," said Grad Council member Joanna Bednarz.
The Council plans on helping more charities in the coming months.
"We will be hosting several events in the spring to help those in need and look forward to expanding Belmont's student involvement in the Nashville community," Bednarz said.

Along with the familiar Red Kettles, the Angel Tree program is one of The Salvation Army's highest profile Christmas efforts. Angel Tree was created by The Salvation Army in 1979 by Majors Charles and Shirley White when they worked with a Lynchburg, Virginia shopping mall to provide clothing and toys for children at Christmastime.
The program got its name because the Whites identified the wishes of local children by writing their gift needs on Hallmark greeting cards that featured pictures of angels. They placed the cards on a Christmas tree at the mall to allow shoppers to select children to help. Thanks to the Whites, who were assigned by The Army to the Lynchburg area at the time, more than 700 children had a brighter Christmas that first year.
Three years later, when the Whites were transferred to Nashville, Tennessee, Angel Tree was launched in the Music City. WSM radio, which airs the Grand Ol' Opry, came on board that year as the first Angel Tree co-sponsor in the U.S.
Because of the on-air promotion on WSM in Nashville, as well as national publicity on CNN and the Larry King Show, news of Angel Tree spread across the country like wildfire.
Who Angel Tree Serves:
Angel Tree gives individuals and partnering corporations an opportunity to adopt less fortunate children and seniors and provide them with personalized gifts and necessities to those who would otherwise receive very little or nothing during the holiday season. Donors can be confident that their gifts go directly, and without excessive overhead, to those who are truly needy since all Salvation Army Angels and are not served by other holiday assistance programs.
Do you wish it was socially acceptable for adults to go trick-or-treating? We do, too. And on October 21, it will be!

Massey students, join us October 30th for this month's power lunch, when we visit Aegis Sciences Corporation. Aegis is a forensic chemical and drug-testing laboratory specializing in drug testing for businesses, professional and amateur sports drug testing, pain management physicians, and medical examiners.
We hope you come to this valuable networking event!
Okay, all puns aside, we're gonna get together the Thursday before Halloween, and we want you to be there. Here are the details:
What: Massey Halloween Thirsty Thursday
When: Thurs., Oct. 25, 8:30 p.m. (or after class)
Where: Chago's on Belmont Blvd.
Who: You and your friends/significant other
Why: Because this jack-o-lantern will stop smiling if you don't come
Is your head spinning from four weeks of finance class? Is your accounting class taxing? Need a get-together that doesn't involve your integrated project? Are you a Massey alum who wants to reconnect with former classmates?
We've got a break for you.
It's the Fall 2012 Massey Mixer, and it's Thursday, Sept. 15 at Chago's. If you don't have class, drop by at 6 p.m. for half-price drinks and good company. If you do have class, no worries -- Massey Thirsty Thursday starts at 9 p.m., so you won't miss any of the fun.
This is a nice way to hang out with classmates in a stress-free setting. We won't outlaw conversation about classes, but we might give you a mean look if we overhear you.
Parking: The Curb Garage is on Bernard Ave. right across the street from Chago's and alumni are allowed to park in the garage. If by chance someone was to get ticketed by campus security the ticket states to disregard it if you are a visitor to campus. Street parking may be available as well.
As one of the top MBA programs in Tennessee, the Massey School isn't just content to be a leader in education. We also want to be leaders in the community. That's why we're excited to be working with many charity organizations this year, including the Ronald McDonald House.
Join us Saturday, Sept. 29 as we serve dinner to 40-45 people at the Ronald McDonald House. We're looking for 8-to-10 volunteers who are willing to spend roughly two hours helping us. If you can't come, you can still help! We're accepting baked goods between September 26 and 29.
If you're interested in serving with us, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to serving with you!
