Dear MSE graduate orientation donors,


Thank you so much for helping us reach our goal of $2200! We couldn't have done this without you. Your donations will help us welcome the next generation of material scientists at UC Berkeley into a culture of respect, safety and healthy work habits. Be on the look out soon for an email about fulfillment of your perks!


Thank you!


The Materials Science and Engineering Graduate Student Council

We're so close!

February 20, 2020

Thank you everyone from the bottom of our hearts for being such generous donors to the Materials Science and Engineering Graduate Orientation. Your donations will help us welcome new graduate students next year into a culture of respect, honest work and healthy habits. We are only $200 away from reaching our goal and it would be incredibly helpful if you could become an ambassador and share our message with your networks. Here is a call to action along with the link to donate that you could share on social media:


Dear friends and family, the Berkeley Materials Science and Engineering Graduate students are raising money to fund their graduate student orientation. They run sexual harassment and violence prevention training, ethics workshops, give work life balance advice and more. Please donate if you can!


Thank you so much!
