IVA question

ART MAJORS (or IVA majors, if any of you are out there):

i'm a painting major about to register for my last quarter. i have 10 credits worth of required classes already, but i still need 2+ credits to stay full time, so to consolidate all my classes into the same days/building, i am thinking of taking the IVA senior studio (ART 400). i love printmaking (probably more than painting), and i think it would be nice to have time/resources to create a body of work in that medium. and who doesn't want extra time around larry the technician?

so, my question is: has anyone taken this class before? is the workload similar to any other senior studio class? is there a lot of lecturing/input from the teacher or do you pretty much get studio work time? are printmaking facilities available to you? will it make me want to rip my eyeballs out if i take it along with two other studio classes?



There was a mix up between my DARS and what I really had. Ive applied for graduation, payed for everything and then they tell me. OH SORRY we messed up, you have 7 credits to make up.
ah! can anyone help on recommendations on what to do?!?!
I need something easy ...maybe a back door way of getting these credits, internship, whatnot?!?! I duno, just looking for ideas I may not know about.
Thanks so much.


So I looked in the memories for grad housing stuff and it seemed like pretty much all of it was from 2005, so I was hoping for more current information.

I'll be attending the School of Public Health and Community Medicine for my masters in the fall. =) So I'm living in Michigan right now and I'm trying to figure out the whole housing situation. I'm hoping to get into contact with other students entering my program to live with maybe, but wanted to get your opinions about housing.

Does anyone have any opinions on University housing, including Radford and Commodore Duchess? In the memories people were saying that they're expensive, but that Commodore is really close? Do I need to get on the waitlist soon for these? Are any of these places pet friendly? From the memories, for off campus housing I've gathered that Wallingford is populated with a lot of grad students, and that the U-district and Ravenna are really close to campus. Any opinions/recommendations?

Basically, I'm looking for somewhere that's quiet and close to campus, preferably within walking distance. How competitive is the housing market? Can I wait until late August to sign a lease if I live off campus, or do I need to be on this right now?

Finally, how necessary is having a car? The bus system seems excellent...

Sorry for all the questions, but I appreciate your help!

Thanks! =)

subletter for the summer

hey all-
i'm looking for someone to sublet this summer as i move to new york city to do teach for america. i have a small 3 bedroom apartment on 47th and 21st. i have 2 female roommates, one of which is never home. they are both sophomores at uw and really active on campus. my room is pretty tiny but it has a loft bed, which is fun. the kicker is that the rent is only $383 a month and that includes all utilities except for gas and internet, which comes to maybe $20 each total.
