Math Department Dinner

Date: March 07, 2014

The UW Math Club is planning for a Department Dinner on Friday, March 7st, 2014 after Jim Morrow's lecture.

The Department Dinner is a quarterly gathering of our club members and department faculties at a restaurant in the U-district. The dinner is intended to be an intimate yet casual get-together, in which everyone can feel free to discuss their favorite mathematical topics or network with their peers and professors. After the dinner, everyone pays for their own meal. The location for this quarter's Department Dinner is The Costa's Restaurant on 4559 University Way. We will gather on the first floor of Padelford Wing C at 5:30 pm, and walk over as a group to the restaurant at around 5:45.

If you would like to attend, please respond to the Catalyst Survery (linke below) by March 5th at 5:00 pm so that we can get an accurate estimate of the reservation headcount. (The survey will close at 5:00 pm on March 5th, so make sure you fill out the survey on time. You need to have a UWNetID in order to participate in the survey)
