PaleoConnect is excited to announce the first Coffee Hour student social event!

Please join us for a student-led social hour aimed at connecting the paleontology student community. Furthermore, we hope to create a space that allows open dialog between students and committee members of the Paleontological Society (PS). During this social hour we will have a break-out room, hosted by a PS Student Representative, dedicated to students who wish to meet and chat with other students. Additional break-out rooms will be hosted by a committee member from the Development Committee, Diversity and Inclusion Committee as well as a program coordinator for PaleoConnect. This social hour is an opportunity to connect, network and seek support from peers. It is also an opportunity to voice ideas, feedback, and concerns with committee members as well as volunteer to help with initiatives that you are passionate about.

The social hour will be on Friday February 26th at 8am PST. If you are interested, please sign up here to receive the zoom link: Sign-up

The main goal of the PaleoConnect program is to increase communication between students as well as give students an opportunity to shape the Paleontological Society to better serve the student community. There are many ways engage through PaleoConnect including:

  • PaleoConnect Peer-Mentorship: participants are matched with students who have similar interests to exchange ideas, resources, and different experiences. The PaleoConnect Team will send occasional discussion topic suggestions. Ask questions, share resources, make a friend! Sign-up
  • Coffee Hour Discussion Room: Stuck on topic and need some good resources? Want to know more about a certain method? What will my Quals even be like?! You can host a discussion room during a PaleoConnect Coffee Hour and get suggestions, advice, and mentoring from your peers. You DO NOT need to be an expert to host a discussion room. To lead a discussion room during future PaleoConnect Coffee Hour sign-up here.
