$2 billion fund-raiser may lift UW into elite


as someone who has been here for 4 years, it seems that there are some fields where the UW is really highly respected within, like computer science, medicine, fisheries... but that people not within one of those specialized fields don't really give the UW the respect it deserves. hopefully this money will allow the other depts to get the boost they need so that the general public will be more aware of this school. sure we're a tier 1, top 50 school... but we really ought to be top 25.

math syllabus

I got my syllabus in Math 120 today.

It has the usual breakdown for final grade (homework 30%, exams 50%, etc.). Upon closer examination I realize the percentages don't even add up to 100.

Hi all! Restaurants and bars are often a topic of discussion here, so I hope it's ok to suggest a community for restaurant reviews: seattle_eats. It's still in its fledgeling stages, but please come and post your best and worst, new and old favorite places to eat. I'm sure everyone's stomachs look forward to hearing from you!

ya'll are probably uber sick of hearing about my problems. however, i have one more..

i registered for efs (early fall start) during the summer, and got a room assigned to me and a class as well. unfortunately, i didn't end up going, and stayed home with my family for the extra few weeks instead. my roommate got the room all to herself, and i was still registered in the class even though my mom had called and had not paid for efs.

now, this wouldn't be bothering me now if it we're for the fact that on my unofficial transcript, i have a 0.00 in my efs class, which made my college gpa go down like a bucket of chicken at oprah's house.

so my question is, does anyone know who i would contact to get this taken off of my transcript and ultimately get this whole mess figured out?

thanks so much,
