Detail:
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.  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: <http://www.aa.ufl.edu/aa/Rules/4006.htm>
Commercial access to campus: <http://www.aa.ufl.edu/aa/Rules/2003.htm>
