4.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Mangrove Literary Review Submissions:
The Mangrove Literary Review is now accepting submissions for its 2008
publication. The Mangrove is the official literary magazine for the
University of Florida. Our mission is to provide an outlet for the
creative endeavors of the student body, including, but by no means
limited to, creative writing (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, even music)
and visual art (painting, photography, comics, graphic art, etc.). The

[log in to unmask] or bring them by the office (ground floor of the
Reitz Union, across from the Studio).

If you have any questions, you can contact Elise at [log in to unmask]

6.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Lease Information from Student Legal Services:
It has come to our attention that certain landlords/apartment complexes
in Gainesville are attempting to coerce tenants into signing amended or
new leases during their existing lease term to add additional tenant
responsibilities (such as the responsibility for pest control). Please
be advised that tenants are not required to agree to any modification of
their lease terms during the lease in most situations. As a result, any
tenant who has been presented with such a demand is most likely
justified in refusing to sign any new or modified contract regardless of
the landlord's demand. Any full time UF student faced with this
situation is invited to contact Student Legal Services for assistance.
Student Legal Services is located in 368 Reitz Union.

7.	OPPORTUNITY: NIH/Oxford/Cambridge Scholars Program for
