The University can add another Nobel winner to their already impressive list of affiliated laureates: Linda Buck of the Hutch, and sometimes professor on campus, was awarded half the prize in medicine for her work on smell and olfactory receptors.
I thought it was kinda neat. ;)
Let's try posting this again, without the typos and such...
Hey, my name is Katie and I'm currently a freshman at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. I'm looking to transfer out (I hate it here) and I stumbled upon the University of Washington. What do you guys think of it? What is the social scene like? (Is there a ton of drinking? Is there a way to get away from it if you don't want to drink?) What do you like the most? What do you like the least? Etc, etc...any info that anyone has would be greatly appreciated...
Is there anyone familiar with the 3rd edition Vis a Vis CD-Rom? I'm trying to figure out where the listening portions for the workbook exercises are, but apparently it's way too jazzy for me to navigate and find.
I'd ask on u-match.org, but only 3 others are listed for French, all of whom haven't logged in for several days.
Ok so I am currently taking on a big project and I would like to ask for your input or help.
basically what I want to do is start a student organization to promote musicians on campus at uw. Some of my prelim ideas are:
Starting a web UW community where artists can upload music and post biographical info, show dates, Album info, etc. (Similar to a purevolume.com or a myspace.com profile).
I would like to build a connection with rainydawg, and other local radio stations to maybe get some airtime for the artists.
I would also like to help provide musicians who haven't had the oppurtunity to record any of their music, with a place to record their music, or meet up with other musicians to start projects together.
After I could build a steady base of artists, I would then like to start organizing shows featuring Uw artists, or maybe even get some on campus acts to open up for signed artists playing shows around the area.
Then if this really takes off and is successful I would eventually like to expand the community to other college campuses, and help other schools start up similar programs.
Ok so thats my plan... What do you guys think? Have you heard of anything similar? Would you be interested in helping out, in a minor or major role? Do you know of any talented musicians who deserve some publicity?
Let me know! My email is Aaquino1984@yahoo.com, please email me if you have any answers to those questions!
