Our local "alternative" newspaper, The Stranger, published an excellent "Alternative Student Handbook" last week. You can find it for free in any of the boxes scattered about the U District.
It includes an intro for UW students, advice for first-timers drinking in bars (written by a bartender from the College Inn), a guide to drugs, an article titled "Being Gay in Seattle", a complementery "Being Straight in Seattle" ("With Specific Instructions on How to Locate the Clitoris"), and more.
The sidebars include some profiles of famous criminals from the UW and a really terrifying graph comparing your predicted salaries upon graduation to the football coach's (hint: the graph is six inches tall and they need to have a zoomed-in bit to show yours).
Anyway, I enjoyed it. :)
I wish I had something like this when I came into the UW.
