Has anyone here participated in a study abroad program without the help of an agency (an agency being either UW or an outside group like CIEE)? I'm in the middle of all my preparations now and I almost wish I had paid the ridiculous agency fees just so I wouldn't have to be the one breathing down my prospective university's neck about course syllabi, credit conversion and a zillion other things.
Have you done this? Did you make it work? Did you get your credit at UW? If so, is there anything I can do to make this whole thing more bearable? Deadlines for winter quarter are coming up soon and right now, I got nothing.
Has anyone taken HSTAA316 (history of science in america)? What'd you think of it? It's a kind of late class and I'm not sure how well it would hold interest. Does anyone know of/recommend an interesting/fun writing course? Thanks!
I know that DXArts is a newer program at UW, but has anyone by chance taken DXArts201? I was just curious what is entailed within this class....the description (like all of UW class description) is a bit broad, if anyone has anymore personal experience of what they thought of this class (and how much it differed from DXArts200 in what you were taught) please share! Thanks!
I am asking for a friend of a friend.... if anyone by chance has tickets to Apple Cup @ WSU this year. I don't know what they're willing to pay... but he's looking for anywhere from 2-4. Reply to this if you know of anyone selling them! Thanks!
Any thoughts on the online classes here? I'm not talking about that easy Enviro Sci class that everyone takes- I mean the real online classes :P (not to piss off anyone who liked the enviro class....but i seriously doubt anyone has learned anything from it, just from stories I've heard).
I'm posting this purely to help myself out. My work, Ben and Jerry's in the U-Village, is short staffed and looking to hire very, very soon. No one is putting in applications. I love working there and it is definately a collegestudent-friendly job with flexible hours. So if any of you guys need jobs....pick up an app!
