Open meeting to discuss Registrar’s proposed changes

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

In case you haven’t heard, the Registrar has proposed moving popular Stanford classes to 8:30 a.m. and disallowing students from taking overlapping classes.  If you’re passionate about this issue, the VPUE is giving you an opportunity to provide input.

Academic Affairs has scheduled a meeting with Vice Provost Harry Elam TODAY at 5:45 PM in the ASSU offices in Old Union.  All interested students are welcome to attend.  Be sure to arrive on time.

The ASSU Senate petition against the changes can be found here.

Three Quarters Moon on the Old Union…on a Monday

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Imagine this, but dark and with lots of people making out.

This year’s FMOTQ is neither a full moon nor really on the quad. The real full moon was on Saturday–which, by most people’s standards, would be the perfect day to have an event. But instead of holding it then, FMOTQ is instead on Monday (which also happens to be right in the middle of midterm week).

Additionally, instead of being on the Quad, most of the festivities are being held at Old Union. There is a concert until 11, after which people will amble on over to the quad. On the bright side, this means the amount of time spent awkwardly milling around before midnight is reduced to an hour or less.

Full Moon has certainly done its share of morphing over the years (see the Daily’s retrospective here). Far from its humble origins, the more recent university-sanctioned incarnation of the annual event is very different. But it’s still, well…something.
