IMPORTANT ADMINISTRATIVE INFORMATION:

1.  DEADLINE TO DROP/WITHDRAW:  The deadline to drop a course or withdraw
(drop all courses) from the fall semester is Monday, November 25 by 5 pm.
Drop forms are available in your college advising offices or 222 Criser
Hall.  See the Dean of Students Office in 202 Peabody to withdraw from all
of your courses.

2.  CLARIFICATION ABOUT PROTEACH PROGRAMS:  False Rumor Alert:  Proteach
programs have NOT been cancelled.  Truth:  While the Proteach Secondary
Education master's degree programs for high school math and foreign
language education have been eliminated, no other Proteach programs are
affected.  Official Word:  The College of Education announces the
elimination of its graduate teacher preparation programs in Mathematics
Education and Foreign Language Education.  Due to budget cuts, low
enrollment, and human resource issues, a decision was made to drop the
Proteach programs in Mathematics, French, and Spanish.  Students enrolled
in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, who were working toward
admission to one of these programs, are encouraged to enroll in the
Pathways to Teaching minor in order to complete courses for Florida state
course-count certification.  Students with questions are encouraged to
speak with someone in the Academic Advising Center for the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences or the Office of Student Services in the College
of Education (134E Norman Hall).

3.  SG ON-LINE SUGGESTION BOX:  Student Advocacy Cabinet has instituted a
new online suggestion box designed to help students voice their opinion of
UF's Student Government.  Anyone is welcome to submit a question or
comment in relation to views on Student Government.  You can reach the
online suggestion box at
http://www.sg.ufl.edu/branches/cabinets/sadvocacy/thebox.asp. Get involved
and visit the Student Advocacy suggestion box and have your voice heard.
