Does anyone on here have anything to say about being an RA? What is it like, pros, cons, who would be well-suited for it, is it fun, is it hard, etc... Also, has anyone gone through the interview/scenario process for the position? I'm set to be interviewed next Saturday and was just wondering if anyone had any tips.

Has anyone noticed that apparently Pres Emmert is on thefacebook.com..? Because I was just browsing through some friends, and I'm connected to him through 2 of my friends.. either this shows that the facebook is spreading like wildfire throughout all college campuses, or someone has decided to use Pres. Emmert as an alias, I have yet to figure out which option is correct. Strange how at least 3 of his friends are former MRHS students, eh.. sure is interesting though

musicians?

Hello. My name's Lisa, and I am putting out a call to musicians ( i don't know anybody yet!) at UW who feel like playing together or getting to know new people. I've been playing guitar since I was 8, and also sing pretty well. kind of write a few songs. I'm into basic good songwriters (joni mitchell, dylan, the band, ani, lucinda willaims, etc) but like genre mixing. I am hoping some cool folks will reply. It has been a long time since I've met anyone looking to jam, or maybe to collaborate with for a song or two at the Trabant Open Mic on 45th. I'm particularly interested in finding *women* musicians who can harmonize and maybe play something -other- than guitar (key board, drumming, a tin can and a stick, whatever), but if you're a respectful laid back dude then please comment! I would describe myself as a strong intermediate guiatarist hoping for friends who can play something other than the first five chords of "Redemption Song". I don't have a studio, other than a crappy 4 track, but reply if you feel like singing on my fire escape sometime. Obviously midterms are approaching and everyone is busy, but you know. Thanks! :)

The Night Ride service is awesome, if you're on campus late, i suggest you use it:

it runs ever 15 min, and even if you live on a bus line only UW people are able to use the night ride, so no wierdos

The Night Ride will drop you off within a mile of campus. Just let the driver know where you need to get off when you hop on board. If your home is outside of the one-mile radius you may be dropped off at an intersection to transfer to a local bus or walk the rest of the way home.
