Officer Name Tags!
Do you ever have trouble figuring out where the officers in the lab are? Officers now will wear name tags during their lab hours so you can more easily spot them! Each of them are unique to individual officers (you can ask to see what silly things people chose to put on the backs) but are identifiable by the blue IEEE lanyard!

IEEE Alumni Newsletter for Developing Software Engineers
If you're interested in growing as a software engineer you might be interested in subscribing to this Substack. It is written by an old IEEE alum, Ryan Peterman, who works at Instagram now as a software engineer. He recently wrote a post about the only 3 classes that mattered from the UCLA CS program. He's eager to answer questions about early software engineering careers, feel free to send him a DM if you have any questions at all!
