Greetings IOG Faculty, Post-Docs, Staff, and Students,

Please mark you calendars for our IOG/MPSI Pre-Doc Orientation and Photoshoot.  The date will be Friday, August 23, 2019.  Attached is a draft schedule of activities. 

Faculty, please make sure your pre-docs attend, as Orientation is mandatory for all incoming and returning pre-docs.  It will begin at 9:00am sharp in the Hoobler Lounge of the Freer House (at 71 E. Ferry St., 2nd floor).

A catered lunch will be provided from 12:00-1:00pm, and all faculty, post-docs, and pre-docs are encouraged to attend.  Please note, we've expanded the time for a luncheon to accommodate the busy schedules of our faculty.  Faculty, even if you can only pop in for 10-15 minutes, we want you there so you can meet our new pre-docs and say hi to our returning ones!

Please remember, the photo session will begin at 1:00pm, right after lunch. Our photographer will take IOG and MPSI group photos, individual photos, and mini-group photos for labs, research teams, projects, or whatever other groups you have.  If you don't yet have a photo on IOG's website, you need one and it'll be taken on thisdate during this time period.  If you have one already, you can update it.  If you are a faculty member and would like a photo of your research team, please have them ready for their photo.

If you would like to add/edit content on your IOG or MPSI profile page, login with your WSU access ID and password at


Julie Wargo Aikins and I look forward to seeing you on Friday, August 23rd, for this great event!
