EDUCATIONAL ENHANCEMENT OPPORTUNITIES:

6.  DRAMATIST ON CAMPUS:  On Thursday, March 28, renowned dramatist Erika
Batdorf performs "The Watcher and the Watched."  This 90 minute lecture
performance (including 45 minutes of audience discussion) explores gender
stereotyping in a provocative, humorous and informative light using
movement and costume. Batdorf performs dressed as a man, as a woman and
'neutrally' in athletic apparel. The audience dramatically witnesses how
movements innocuous to one sex are taboo to another.  Presented in 137
Norman Hall, 7:30 pm.  Erika Batdorf has performed, directed and
choreographed original movement theatre since 1983.  Sponsored by UF
Baha'i Unity Club and Accent.  For more information visit:

stay awake and on their feet to raise money and awareness for the
Children's Miracle Network as they participate in the largest student run
philanthropy in the southeastern United States, and this is how you can
help. After the Orange and Blue game on Saturday April 6, an auction will
take place on the second level of O'Connell center.  Some of the auction
items include a Kaplan gift certificate, 2 Hooters Wing Parties; 6 EA
Sports Playstation, and autographed items like a Steve Spurrier
