NOTE: On the day before each of the Writing Workshops (i.e. January 18 and February 1) make enough copies of your paper to distribute to each of your group members plus one more for the faculty. Read the papers prior to coming to the Workshop and then critique them following the protocol established by the “Fishbowl Workshop” that you will participate in on January 19.



 For those of you traveling to Europe in the spring:

1. Be sure and fill out your "Waiver, Release and Indemnity Agreement" that Michael Clifthorne passed out on Thursday, February 1, and return them ASAP to Pam Udovich in Lab I, room 1020.

2.  Here is the link to the State Department's website on Travel Advisories. Please read the ones on Italy and Greece.  Our secretary, Pam Udovich, will send a copy to the travel dean along with your Travel Waiver Forms.
