ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

4.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Essays Needed about Students' Reflections on Moral Conflicts in College (NEW POSTING):
The Journal of College and Character is looking for college students who would like to share their thoughts and feelings about how college has influenced their moral and civic commitments.

If you are interested in writing a 3-5 page essay for a future issue of the Journal let us know by responding to the questions below.

The essays are intended to be candid, personal reflections on the following topics:
*	What have been some of the most significant influences on your personal moral values and beliefs during college?
*	What are some of the moral conflicts you have experienced as a student in college?
*	How are your colleges experiences helping you to develop more awareness and commitment to ethical values and conduct?
*	What do you think should be done (or should not be done) to encourage moral development in college students?

We believe that students' voices need to be heard as we explore ways to make the college experience more supportive for students' moral and civic development.

If you would like to write an essay, send the following information to Amanda Weldy at [log in to unmask]: Attach your essay with your personal information in the title page: name, college, year in school, major, e-mail, and phone.

Once all recipes have been collected, they will be bound and sold as a cookbook to the public. All proceeds from the sales would go directly towards the Disaster Relief Fund that provides food, clothing and shelter for families that have experienced a disaster, such as a home fire. 

Please send all recipes to [log in to unmask] by October 2. The Red Cross appreciates any recipe donation that you can provide.

A link and instructions for the application are posted on the AMSA website at www.ufpremed.org. All returning members must reapply this semester.

The University of Florida Premedical Chapter of AMSA dedicates itself to the formation of strong fundamentals in premedical students through the enhancement of the premed experience in academic, community, and social settings. We believe that great physicians are, in part, determined by the choices they make while pursuing acceptance into medical school. These choices will ultimately shape the community, state, and nation in which we live. Our members will carry on this devotion to the medical profession for the rest of their careers as physicians.

If you have any questions about anything AMSA related, please feel free to e-mail [log in to unmask]

The most frequent age of entry into the commercial sex industry in the US is 12-14 years old. 100% of the proceeds from this concert will go directly to help women leave the sex industry. The money will help the women move forward in life by allowing them to continue education and acquire employment. Please visit http://www.gems-girls.org/index.html for more information. This organization needs your help, so please come out and bring all your friends. 

Admission: $8 for 21 and over & $10 for under 21
