It was very nice meeting old and new friends on the night of January 8th! Erik, Petter, Nancy, Markus, Laurie, and myself were old timers who have been at previous meetings and Martin & Ehsan were new faces. Both Martin and Ehsan have been exchange students at Chalmers and both appreciated the long term cause to financially support a foreign student enrolling at Chalmers. But even more importantly, there is a shared interest to connect with peers and feed the Chalmers spirit by meeting old alumni and like-minded people.
As always, Markus guided us and selected a fantastic place to eat, chat, and have fun – you can see an image of us posing at the attached picture
We all agree that we want to gradually grow as a chapter and continue to meet. We haven’t selected a date for next event yet, but it will come. And once the summer is here we will consider finding outdoor places like Central Park to meet up at. There is also a potential joint Chapter meeting on the horizon together with Uppsala and SSE, but more info will come on that once the details are shaping up.
Greetings, Jens Kulstad
