ASUW Elections - New and Improved!

Beginning this year, ASUW elections will be conducted according to Instant Runoff Voting (IRV)! What does this mean for you? No more late nights choosing a single candidate; no more "winners" supported by only 30% of campus... no, now you can RANK the candidates you prefer and the winner has to receive support from a true majority of campus!

Learn more by visiting – you can even fill out a sample ballot to become familiar with the whole process.

REMEMBER: ASUW Elections are May 8th – 10th! Vote as!

Has anyone here done the Communication department Rome study abroad program? It's at the UW Rome Center, and I'm just wondering what the experience was like, etc. I'm considering going & I've been accepted, so I have to make a decision ASAP.

What are the living situations like? I know it's in some kind of apartment, but I have NO idea how many people I'd be sharing it with, if it's shared rooms, if there's internet connection at home, etc. And of course any other relevent information would be fabulous.

P.S. I'm well aware that it's insanely expensive, so don't bother pointing that out. Haha, it's already depressing enough without being reminded.

State's Largest Animal Shelter Sounding Euthanasia Alert

TACOMA - The state’s largest animal shelter is sounding a euthanasia alert. The shelter at the Humane Society of Tacoma and Pierce County is filled to capacity and animals will soon have to be put down.

They're not sugar-coating the situation. If animals, especially cats, aren't adopted out right now, they're going to have to start putting many of them to death.

Vet's assistant Yahleeyah Blackwell says working here, you can't help but get attached to some of these animals.

"I helped (a mother cat) deliver two Saturdays ago because she was having a complication," Blackwell said.

But unless something is done, a death sentence awaits many of these animals. Last year, 2,500 cats and dogs were killed because no one would adopt them.

It's heartbreaking for those who have to make the call of who lives and who moreCollapse )
