attn: dormies

i'm going to be showing around two girls (prospective freshmen) today and my last dorm connections are long gone.. if possible, i'd like to show them a room because i know that that's the first thing i wanted to see when i first came to campus. i have a break from classes between 1230 - 220.. would anyone be so kind as to offer a quick (just a few minutes) tour of their room? north campus dorms (all but hansee) would be ideal because of the convenience, but i certainly wouldn't mind traipsing down to the south campus dorms if that's what is available.

guys or gals -- doesn't matter - and cleanliness is optional. :)

even if you aren't available at all today but wouldn't mind helping me out on another occasion, please let me know. i'll be showing around more students as the year progresses.

thanks for your help!

Which side of the table are you going to be on?

Attention dormies:This is a shameless plug for the Peer Review Board.

The Peer Review Board is a leadership organization on campus affiliated with HFS that provides students living in the residence halls the opportunity to receive informal hearings in a neutral setting in the event of a contract violation. (i.e. someone gets busted breaking their housing contract, they can come to us for a hearing and we can decide whether or not we think they really were drinking/smoking out/being loud etc.)

We are currently accepting applications for 2002-2003 board members. This is an easy way to get involved in leadership activities on campus, with minimal commitment. Typically we hold meetings or hearings once per week, lasting generally no more than two hours.

*Great for Resumes--especially if interested in advancing through HFS as say... a Resident Advisor. Over half of the board members from 2001 are now holding RA positions from what was one of the most competitive RA selection processes at UW in years
*Judicial experience, in case you're interested in studying law.
*Form relationships with a small group of talented and diverse people
*Always-helpful group interaction and negotiating skills
*Hob-knobbing with the inners of HFS (I was a member last year, and got to skip the waiting list for a single room, this year)
*You get to be a part of one of the fastest growing, successful and widely-respected leadership groups on campus.
*No dorky HFS t-shirts, either.

It is a volunteer position, but it's a great experience! Great stories to tell, about some interesting cases...

Applications are available at all hall front desks, and will be accepted at hall advisory offices through Thursday the 17th.

Please feel free to post any questions you may have! Thanks!

(no subject)

Is there anybody in the Boffing club who would be willing to meet with me to discuss the procedures and events of what you guys do? I am thinking about writing a term paper on the subject and would like to find out if it is a viable topic.

I'll treat to coffee or lunch or something.

Also, I will be presenting my findings to 400 people in a presentation short, so it could turn out to be good press.
