3 Benefits of Joining oSTEM

1. Highly Valuable General Meetings

After our introductory meeting, we have four general meetings over the course of the semester every two weeks featuring:

We arrange these meetings with external sources to help you learn, network, and guide your next steps post-college. Due to COVID-19, all meetings are being hosted over Zoom.

2. A Slack to socialize in

We’ve ditched GroupMe in favor of Slack, a free messaging platform that’s used by huge corporations, small startups, research labs, engineering firms and consulting organizations. It’s the 21st century’s midpoint between formal emails and casual group messaging. In it, you can have and join separate channels for separate topics. Our Slack channels are geared towards:

  • Announcements
  • Professional Promotions
  • Resumé Drop Instructions
  • General LGBTQ memes
  • Forming subgroups for socializing

3. Multiple Annual All-Expenses-Paid-For National Conferences

Every year, we send as many of our members as we can to the National oSTEM Conference in late November and the O4U Conference(s) in September & October. Admittance, flights, booking, and all travel expenses are entirely funded and paid for by the oSTEM National Organization and the university.
