IMPORTANT ADMINISTRATIVE INFORMATION:

1.  CHANGES IN COMMENCEMENT:  The University of Florida will be changing
commencement for Spring 2002 with the long-term goal of having all
colleges (or a group of small colleges) conduct their own ceremonies.
Across the country, many universities have moved in this direction in
order to provide a more personalized experience for students and their
families.  More information can be found at
http://www.reg.ufl.edu/commemo.html.

2.  FINANCIAL AID DISBURSEMENT INFORMATION:  E-Notices of financial aid
disbursements are sent to your GatorLink e-mail account when:  (1)
Financial aid paid your university debts and/or (2)  Financial aid was
directly deposited into your checking account.  Please view your
electronic financial aid disbursement notice to acknowledge receipt of
your financial aid.  Failure to do so may place a financial hold on your
account.  If you need assistance accessing your GatorLink account, please
contact the GatorLink Help Desk at (352) 392-4357.

3.  STUDENT HEALTH CARE CENTER EXCUSE NOTE POLICY:  The Student Health
Care Center can provide a medical excuse note only if our providers are
involved in the medical care of a student who must be absent from class
for 3 or more days for medical reasons.  A student who has a medical
reason which results in less than 3 days of absence from class should talk
with his/her professor rather than asking for an excuse note from the
SHCC.  To see more details about the excuse note policy, see
http://www.health.ufl.edu/shcc/shccex.htm.

4.  LITTERING ON CAMPUS:  There have been many complaints from students
about litter from bar ads 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:

EDUCATIONAL ENHANCEMENT OPPORTUNITIES:

5. BLACK HISTORY MONTH:  February is Black History Month, and there are
numerous events throughout the month which are open to the entire
university community.  To see the entire calendar, visit
http://www.geocities.com/uflbsu/.

6.  STUDENT ORGANIZATIONAL FAIR:  IDEAL, the Reitz Union's leadership peer
educators, will be hosting a Student Organization Fair on Thursday,
February 7, from 10 am to 3 pm at the Reitz Union.  Learn about the many
different kinds of organizations at UF.  Come meet students from over 120
student organizations.  Take part in demonstrations from ROTC, the chess
club and many more; there will be pizzas, smoothies and giveaways.  The
organization fair is a great way to find out how to get involved on campus
or to find out what programs and events are being planned by the other
students.  Remember, the Provost believes that leadership activities are
one of the 5 opportunities that undergraduates should take advantage of
while at the University of Florida (see
http://www.aa.ufl.edu/UGExperience.pdf).  The Student Organization Fair is
the first step to becoming a leader.

7.  STUDENT GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS AND QUALIFYING FOR ELECTIONS:  SG Spring
Election:  March 19-20, 2002; March 25-26, 2002 (if a run-off is

8.  RECREATIONAL SPORTS SEEKS STUDENT FEEDBACK:  The Division of
Recreational Sports is conducting student focus groups to learn how YOU
feel we're meeting YOUR needs.  Recreational Sports includes the fitness
centers, outdoor recreational facilities, Gatorobics, aquatics, Intramural
Sports and Sport Clubs.  Sign up and participate in a short peer-group
discussion about recreational sports and you'll receive a FREE GIFT.

easy, and your opinion may shape the future of recreational sports here on
campus long after you've graduated.  Sign-up today!  Call 392-0581, ext.
231 or email [log in to unmask] for a schedule of group meeting times
