__Per aspera ad astra__

Items for the Strong College Newsletter may be submitted at any time
to the College Office (Room 140), and by 12:00 noon on Thursdays for 
inclusion in the next week’s issue.  Events are open to all members of 
Strong College unless otherwise indicated.


- Political Science 200 (American Politics) -

A special section of Political Science 200 (American Politics, PSC 200) 
is being offered for Strong College students this coming semester.  The 
sections of this course are usually large, but just for you a special 
writing intensive section is being offered, limited to 25 and meeting 
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 - 9:50.  If you are planning to 
take PSC 200 why not join your fellow Strong College members in this 
section?  To reserve your space just slip a note under the College 
Office door (Room 140) with your name and ID number, and Dr. White will 
get back to you.  You must let us know you are interested by November 
10th, because after that date the Registrar will start filling any 
remaining spaces on a first-come first-served basis.

- The President’s Tea and a Congressional Guest -

Speaking of American Politics, Dr. White will be hosting Greensboro 
Congressman Howard Coble at the President’s Tea next week (November 
16th).  The President’s Tea happens every Wednesday in the Junior Common 
Room from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m.  Why not stop by this week for a snack, and 
then come again next week to meet Congressman Coble and talk about the 
election or anything else political?

- STRONG-L Up and Running -

Our new e-mail discussion group, Strong-L, is up and running!  (Thanks 
to Robert Adams, the manager.)  To join Strong-L send an e-mail message 
containing the one line SUBSCRIBE STRONG-L JANE DOE (replace “Jane Doe” 
with your own name, of course) to the campus listserv address, and you 
will get further instructions by return e-mail.  See you in cyberspace!  
(And if you don’t know what IMHO, BTW, IANL, and ROTFL mean, this is the 
place to ask.)

- Looking for an Extra Course? -

If you’re a freshman, why not consider a Freshman Seminar?  There are 
small writing intensive courses (limited to 20), and each one satisfies 
some portion of the All-University Liberal Education Requirements.  
Quite a few are being offered, including several by Strong College 
faculty: “Word of Honor” (FMS 103-01, Karen Meyers), “Charles Darwin and 
the Origin of Species” (FMS 104W-02, Robert O’Hara), “Evidence and 
Argument” (FMS 106W-01, Ken Caneva), and “Brits Go to the Movies” (FMS 
110H-01, Laurie White).  For a complete listing you can pick up a 
brochure on the Freshman Seminar Program in Room 100 Foust Building, or 
look at the one copy on the bulletin board outside the College Office.  
(Please put it back for others to read when you are done.)

- Need a Quiet Place to Study? -

Visit the Strong College Library (your library, Room 330).  Thanks to 
our crack team of volunteer librarians it is open for your reading and 
studying pleasure Sunday 7:00 - 11:00 p.m., and Monday - Thursday 1:00 - 
5:00 p.m. and 7:00 - 11:00 p.m.

- News of Members -

Allen Frady was selected as a University Marshall.  Congratulations!

Dr. White went to the annual meeting of the National Collegiate Honors
Council last week in San Antonio, Texas.  (And if you ask nicely, she
will show you a picture of herself riding a long-horned steer.)

- Poem-of-the-Week -
