We had our first town hall meeting today. Basically there is a Case medical student government, and we at CCLCM have our own student representatives. They served pizza and soda (yay!), and the meeting was kind of just an introduction to let people know how these meetings work, as well as to introduce some of the new CCLCM student groups. One of my favorites, at least as far as names go, is SINNAPS, which is the group for students interested in neuroscience, neurology, and psychiatry....I can't remember what the last S stands for. But there are other groups too, including the free clinic that I already told you about, the ultimate frisbee club, a marathon club, our own AMSA chapter, and an AIDS interest group. We also were told that the M1 class will have to elect our own representatives soon, about parking at Case and at CCF, and we were given a warning that the refrigerator was going to be cleaned out in the student lounge at the end of next week. It does stink in there, so that's not a bad thing.
Case also had a student activities fair, and a couple of students in our class went and signed up for the email lists for all of their clubs on behalf of the rest of the class. I don't think that too many CCLCM students participate in most of the Case clubs though because the campus is just far enough away that it is difficult to coordinate schedules. On the other hand, they have a lot of neat clubs. It would be fun to participate in some of them, especially the ones that revolve around cooking ethnic food!
