hello Udubers

hey...I will be going to UW soon...an intended drama major. when I went to my advising session it didn't seem like there were a lot of "hardcore" artsy types like myself...yeah, I know it sounds superficial, or something else negative, but I feel like I'm gonna be kinda lonely in my persuits...are there groups of people who have very serious views on the craft of theatre at UW (can anyone describe the attitude that is found in the UW drama program?)...or, aside from theatre, are there people who are passionate about art, poetry, or especially music...all those with a kind of bohemian attitude?...not traditional.

I didn't want to say it this way, but here it is: where, if at all, do you find the alternative kids at UW?

the new proxy system (or: god it's sad i care this much)

The UW libraries recently changed the way students & staff can access UW-restricted sites off-campus, and the new system is rather annoying if you ask me.  I think there are some libraries people here, so I figured I'd ask: What exactly are the benefits of the new system, and is there any chance of the old system coming back, or of having both available side-by-side?
why the new system irks meCollapse )

(no subject)

I lived in the dorms last year, and I'm returning this year. Do I need to get a new Husky Card? I just got an email from HFS, saying I need to get a Husky Card prior to moving in?

Thanks muchas.
