With many of the customers away, the Computer Store and its Compu-scape satellite store in the Student Life Centre will be closed today and tomorrow. The bookstore is open all week, usual hours.
Also open all week is the co-op department, as Olaf Naese explains from the first floor of Needles Hall:
Here in Cooperative Education & Career Services everything is full steam ahead this week. Our facilities are completely booked and we expect approximately 300 - 400 employers to be on campus over the next five days to interview over 2,500 students.Closing for a few hours, but for a whole different reason, is the health services department. It will be closed mornings (until 1 p.m.) today and tomorrow so that staff members can attend a workshop.
We often get asked why we don't shut down our activities during reading week. The answer is that we simply cannot afford to lose the time or there could be hundreds of fewer students with work term employment by the end of April.
The initial interview period started February 3 and continues to February 28. After the computer match of student with employers takes place on March 10. Interviews continue until the end of exams.
Watch for school buses today as "The Potato People" entertain kids at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. in the Humanities Theatre (also tomorrow at 1:30).
The teaching resource office has a seminar tomorrow on "Individual-Centered Education: An Any One, Any Time, Any Where Approach to Engineering Education". The speaker is Jim Tien of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; the talk will be given at 2 p.m. Tuesday in Engineering II room 1307C. Everyone is welcome.
The "Examination Regulations and Related Matters" document was recently revised by Senate Undergraduate Council. Faculty will be interested to know that four (4) rather than two (2) deadlines for submission of examination masters for printing by the Registrar have been approved which will permit a longer timeline for preparation of the masters. However, if the submission deadline is missed, departments will be responsible for printing the examinations in sufficient quantity as well as delivery of the examination papers to the assigned locations.
Amongst other changes approved, examination colours will be limited to three (3) for those requesting this and the front page only will reflect the colour stipulated by the examination requirement to denote type S examinations (special materials such as calculators are permitted -- pink) and type O (open book examinations -- green).
