Easiest courses taken at the UW (what did you get grade wise) so far and who taught them?

I'm looking into Sociology courses for next quarter too, but heard a lot of bad things about Prof. Weis and Black. What are some of the better profs and courses?

Spying on Muslims in Seattle Town Hall

Here's an awesome event happening Monday night on campus:

The UW Chapter of Americans for Informed Democracy is presenting a town hall forum on Spying on Muslims in Seattle: Is it legal? Are we safer? Will it help us win the war on terror--or are we losing civil liberties?.

Monday, Feb. 27th, 7:30pm
GOWEN Rm. 301

-Professor & NY Times best-selling author Roger Morris
-Prize-winning journalist & Communications Director of the Washington ACLU Doug Honig

Professor Morris was also on the Senior Staff of the National Security Council under Presidents Johnson and Nixon, until he resigned over the invasion of Cambodia. Mr. Honig was a prize-winning journalist and has written extensively about the US Patriot Act. The forum is free and open to everyone. Seattle is one of the main targets for the US government's domestic spying programs, so bring your questions, comments, and an open mind. Take a study break and come hear what your community has to say!

Nordheim Court

Hey, I'm planning on living in Nordheim Court next year and I went and looked at some of their rooms and it all looked really nice. But this morning I was at the 8 and I looked at the little advertisement for Nordheim on the table and someone had written "why the hell did I ever move here?" on it. So I was wondering, what do people think of Nordheim? Is it as nice as it seems? Do people hate it once they move in? Why?

Don't stone me

I know, I know, it's one of those posts.
But I register tomorrow morning and I'm having a hard time deciding here.

I have 12 credits decided on, but I need/want another 5-credit class, preferrably I&S.
My choices are:
HSTEU 274: 20th Century Europe, with Bailkin
HSTEU 435: World War I, with Bridgman
RUSS 420: Russian Art & Architecture, with West

Has anyone had any of these classes/instructors in the past? Advice would be appreciated.

FISH 475 Lab desperation!

Anyone registered for Marine Mammology monday lab (it's closed!) who might switch so I can get into it? There's no way I can do the Thursday lab and I desperately need the credits and I wanna take it, too. I register tomorrow cuz I'm a visiting student *cries*.

When this sort of thing happens, do professors ever allow lab overtallies? Like if I beg and plead with him?
