You are probably already aware of the human tragedy unfolding in Nepal in the aftermath of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake on April 25, 2015. Throughout Nepal, more than 7,000 people have died and an additional 10,000 have been injured. The earthquake has affected 8 million people so far, and the affected people really need help with food, temporary shelter, medications and other relief materials, especially outside of Kathmandu.
I encourage you to read about what’s going on in Nepal. I’m sure the suffering of so many people will move you. Then, if you decide to donate, please consider donating through link below. The link will take you to MU Nepalese Student Association (MUNSA)’s homepage, where you will see the link where you will be able to contribute any amount for the earthquake victims. We all would truly be grateful for any contribution you can provide.

PAGSA will be hosting its May General Assembly Meeting on Friday, May 1st, in the Physics Library at noon.
Please come out and support PAGSA and enjoy some free pizza. General Assembly meetings are open to graduate students from the Dept. of Physics and Astronomy and invited guests.
The meeting agenda will be posted as soon as it is available.
The meeting minutes will be posted as soon as it is available.
This upcoming Sunday, April 26, PAGSA will be having a fundraiser at Shakespeare’s pizza at all three of their locations all day long. Anyone who makes any purchase (with the attached flyer) at Shakespeare’s Pizza that day, PAGSA will receive 15% of those sales.
Spread the word to friends, family, colleagues, and even people we don’t know. Our main goal for this fundraiser is to help fund the department float trip this Summer.
We will need a lot of people to show up and make purchases if we want to raise a significant amount of money.
Lastly, I believe it would be a good idea if we all got together at the downtown location (225 South Ninth St). Please join me and others anytime between 4-6pm Sunday to eat some delicious pizza, hang out, and enjoy a relaxing Sunday afternoon!
Thank you all and please spread the word to help this fundraiser be a huge success!!
