IMPORTANT ADMINISTRATIVE INFORMATION:

1.  HOLD FOR BRIGHT FUTURES FRESHMEN:  Students who entered UF Fall
Semester 2002 MUST have their CLEP tests as required by Bright Futures to
be completed by December 13, or they will receive a hold on their record
by that date preventing registration or changes in their schedule for
spring semester.  To sign up for tests on campus go to
http://www.at.ufl.edu/clep.  For further information on this requirement
which applies only to students beginning Summer B and Fall 2002, go to
http://www.advising.ufl.edu/clep.  Since seats for the test on campus are
very limited, it is important to get this requirement done well before the
deadline.

2.  CONSIDER GRADUATE SCHOOL:  Have you given much thought about what to
do after graduation? If not, come out to the Reitz Union Ballroom on
October 16 from 9 am to 3 pm for Graduate and Professional Schools (GAP)
Day. Prepare for GAP Day by attending these helpful CRC workshops:
Considering Graduate School, Wednesday Oct. 2 at 6:15 pm (TODAY) and Oct.

from October 4 through 6.  Presenters will be attorneys, managers,
accountants, and agents speaking to various students, musicians, and other
key players in the music industry about their respective fields in the
music business.  The Conference will also hold a music expo and demo
listening section, and 27 bands from throughout Florida will be featured
at various venues throughout Gainesville.  This is a great opportunity for
students of all majors to make contacts in the music/law industries, gain
valuable information, and have a great time!  The UF student registration
fee is $10 until Friday October 4, and then it is only $15.  See

5.  BAMSA AND RACE, ETHNICITY, AND MINORITY ISSUES:  An incipient UF
Student Organization, the Biracial And Multiracial Student Association
(BAMSA), is a forum and social network for anyone interested in race,
ethnicity, minority issues, and their societal function and serves as a
support group for biracial, multiracial, and intersectional-minority
persons (i.e., people who identify with more than one minority group) or
anyone interested in multiple-minority identity.  BAMSA is not just for
biracial or multiracial persons, nor will we speak of issues germane only
to biracial or multiracial persons; the foci of discussions are general
minority issues as well as specific ones: integrative minority issues.
We would like anyone interested in ethnic, cultural, or minority studies
to contribute to our organization.  Come and find out more at our meeting
