IMPORTANT ADMINISTRATIVE INFORMATION:

1.  S/U OPTION FORM DEADLINE:  S/U Option forms are due to the Office of
the University Registrar on September 13, 2002.  Subject to college degree
program and department guidelines, students may take elective course work
and earn grades of S (Satisfactory) or U (Unsatisfactory). Once the S-U
option is approved, students may not revert to a letter grade, nor elect
the S-U option after the deadline.  To elect the S-U option, students must
obtain the approvals indicated on the form. They may elect the S-U option
for only one course each term; this option is in addition to courses that
are taught only on an S-U basis.  Courses taken to fulfill Writing and
Math Requirement (Gordon Rule) may not be taken S-U. For more information,
see http://www.reg.ufl.edu/02-03-catalog/regulations/grades.html#su.

2.  SEPTEMBER 11 REMEMBRANCE: In remembrance of the tragic events of
September 11, 2001, the University of Florida has organized a memorial
service to be held at 3 pm, Wednesday, September 11 at the University
Auditorium.  Scheduled to speak are Dr. Charles Young, Dr.  Michael
Gannon, Dr. Gail F. Baker, Dr. Wayne Griffin, Dr. Anthony Falsetti,
Student Body President Nikki Fried, and Ms. Heather Walsh-Haney.  Musical
performances will be by Professor Willis Bodine of the School of Music and
student carillonneurs.  All faculty, staff and students are invited.  A
Memorial Tree Planting is scheduled immediately following the 3 pm
program, at the HUB, sponsored by Student Government.  Earlier in the day,
from 8:46 through 10:30 am, Dr.  Bodine will perform on the Century Tower
carillon his "Fanfares in Memory and Hope: A Carillon Suite."  The music
will coincide with the timing of events on September 11, 2001. A moment of
silence will be observed on campus at 9:30 am.  Classes will not be
canceled for the service and the university will maintain a regular class
schedule throughout the day.  On Thursday, September 12, Accent presents
terrorism expert and former FBI member Danny Coulson at 7:30 pm in the
University Memorial Auditorium.

3.  DEGREE APPLICATIONS DUE:  Graduating this semester or earning your
Associate of Arts?  Submit your degree application to the Office of the
University Registrar, 222 Criser Hall, no later than 5:00 pm Friday,
September 20th.  Applications are available online at
http://www.reg.ufl.edu/pdf/degapp1.pdf for all degrees and
http://www.reg.ufl.edu/pdf/aa-app1.pdf for Associate of Arts certificates.


4.  LITTER ON CAMPUS:  We've been getting many complaints from students
about litter from advertising including ads from bars in their classrooms,
their residence halls and on the campus grounds.  Some businesses employ
students to distribute their ads... Did you know that as a student
advertising anything... your student group's activities or a local
business, you're required to follow UF guidelines on distributing printed
material?  Those guidelines ONLY allow you to hand ads/flyers to others on
a one-on-one basis and ONLY outside UF buildings.  You may not leave piles
of flyers around, throw them on the ground, seats or floors, or place on
car windshields.  Littering the campus, chalking walls and sidewalks,
hanging flyers on walls and trees are all against the UF rules and the
Student Conduct Code.  If you are doing any of these activities, you could
find yourself facing Judicial charges.  If you see anyone doing this, you
have the right to tell them to stop... It's YOUR campus!  Help us all keep
your campus clean and a place to be proud of... only distribute printed
materials as allowed by UF rules:  Distribution of Printed Material:
http://www.aa.ufl.edu/aa/Rules/4006.htm.  Commercial access to campus:
http://www.aa.ufl.edu/aa/Rules/2003.htm.  For further information, contact
