Subject:List Of Items To Bring To Dorms
Time:12:38 am.
I'm an incoming freshmen at the UW this fall and I was wondering if any students had any tips/advice on what and what not to bring to the dorms. I know essentials are needed (sheets, bedding, toiletries, clothing, etc.) A list would be nice. What did you discover that you didn't use much or at all? What is a must have? And so forth.

Is the lighting good? Is there air conditioning?

This would help me out a lot and I'm sure other incoming freshmen out as well. Thanks a lot! (:

Subject:Diversity Monument
Time:8:58 am.
I know there was some question of just what the art between Suzz and Mary Gates is supposed to be - "diversity monument" didn't really tell anyone anything about it. (Which, really, if you think about it, is a pity - there was the perfect chance to educate people about the project as they were building it. But I digress...) Anyhow, the PI did a piece on it this morning, and I thought I'd share. Apologies if this showed up in an answer to the question a while back, as I missed it.

Titled "Blocked Out," the sculpture -- unveiled 12 days ago during commencement weekend -- is dedicated to people who have suffered from oppression. It features footprints in black granite, symbolizing a slave auction block, facing a curling stone bench. Das Gupta, a biochemistry major, and Gardner, both 22, also inspired the installation of $80,000 worth of art by artists of color in Kane Hall. The money came from the Washington State Arts Commission.

Subject:Quick Question.
Time:10:53 am.
Mood: confused.
I'm going to be a freshmen at UW, and just got done with my Summer Advising Session and left the campus even more confused then when I first arrived, when dealing with registration issues.

All I know is that I e-mailed the people at FIGS requesting a Residential FIG for my first quarter that came with a package of classes. That puts me at 12 credits, but is that going to be too little of credits? Shouldn't I need 15 in order to not be behind everyone else?

Some people have suggested I take a 3 credit class, but I don't even know what to take, or look for, for that matter. Everything is so confusing and I don't want to be lost when classes finally begin in the fall.

In case it matters, I plan to major in Communications/Journalism and The Comparative History of Idea's. And so, the FIG I signed up for has some basic Intro Communication classes along with some English and whatever else.

Can anyone help? And Thanks in advance :)
