Compass 2012 Fundraising Campaign and Social Hour

Jul 27, 2012   //   by Jacob   //   Blog, Compass News, Uncategorized  //  No Comments

Compass, as you know, is almost entirely a volunteer organization. It was started around 2006 by a group of idealistic graduate students (depending of course on how you define “started”), and it is still run by a dedicated group of grad students and undergrads. Furthermore – and this is critical – the current leaders are not just stewards for a set of programs that were handed down to us. One of our real strengths is that Compass is continually growing and developing as a program – we’re a collection of physicists and friends thereof who are united by a guiding set of principles. One of those principles is personal empowerment and self-determination.
