Welcome back! I hope everyone had a great winter break and are ready to start off your Spring Semester strong!
Accenture is thrilled to announce the 2018 Accenture Innovation Challenge – a multi-round event that combines hands-on consulting experience with the opportunity to make a positive impact on society.

If selected to participate, you’ll work in teams to develop an innovative solution for a real challenge faced by our non-profit partner, 
CARE USA. The winning team will receive an internship offer, the opportunity to implement their solution, and a $5,000 cash prize.

When considering your application for this opportunity, you are committing to attend the round 1 event on this date and in this location if selected to participate. No exceptions will be granted to those who are unable to attend in person. Please check your availability carefully prior to submitting your application.
Registration ends January 8 (Today).
You can find further details about the 2018 Accenture Innovation Challenge and watch highlights from past Challenges on our website.

Taste of OSU is an evening of cultural performances on stage, exhibits and food from around the world provided by more than 30 different international and ethnic clubs on campus. Food tickets are $1 each (samples of international cuisine). Admission to event is free. Taste of OSU 2018 is on Friday, February 16, 2018 from 5 - 9 p.m. at the Ohio Union. 

Latino Student Association will also be participating in a dance performance. If you would like to participate sign up HERE.

Sphinx is the oldest honorary on campus. Since 1907, there have been over 100 years of members, known as links. Each year, Sphinx links 24 exceptional senior students and aims to foster strong friendships among them. The application is live and closes Monday, January 22, 2018 at 11:59 pm.
Please contact Sergeant-at-Arms, Yamilex Molina at molina.80@osu.edu with any questions or concerns. Also note that you will need one letter of recommendation from a faculty, staff, or OSU-affiliated person.

SHPE Class Recommendation Sheet
Since Fall classes have just ended and are fresh in our minds, please fill out the SHPE Class Recommendation Sheet to help students out later with scheduling! You may recommend classes, teachers, etc.

** Please contact Melina Willis.565 if you wish to add to old exams and quizzes to the SHPE test bank (your materials will be returned to you)!
New GroupMe Chats!

The SHPE Executive Board has made a few decisions regarding the General Body GroupMe. In order to better regulate the communication of relevant information, the following changes will be made: 
  • A new GroupMe called LeaderSHPE has been made, in this GroupMe ONLY SHPE Executive Board members may post messages. If a non E-Board member posts a message, they will receive a warning. If they post a second message, this will result in their removal from the LeaderSHPE GroupMe for a week. If a member has an important professional announcement that they want included in the LeaderSHPE GroupMe, they may send the announcement to an E-board member for approval and the E-board member will post the message. The current GroupMe (SHPE@OSU) will be renamed MemberSHPE. Here members may share events and ideas freely given they follow general GroupMe Etiquette.
Members are encouraged to join both GroupMe chats as LeaderSHPE will be where all the important information will be distributed and MemberSHPE will serve as an outlet to communicate with the rest of the SHPE Familia.
