__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.


- Admission to Strong College for Next Year -

As announced in the Newsletter last semester, Strong College now has a 
formal admission procedure (modeled on the one used by UNCG’s 
Residential College) for students who wish to join our community.  
Undergraduates who currently live in Moore-Strong Hall do not need to go 
through this procedure to return next year, but they must turn in the 
blue forms they received this week to the College Office (140) by 10:00 
p.m. this coming Wednesday, February 1st, in order to have their spaces 
saved for them.  Other students on campus who wish to join us, or 
incoming freshmen and transfer students, may pick up an application for 
admission in either 100 Foust Building or the Housing and Residence Life 
Office beginning on February 1st.  Completed applications from other on-
campus students must be received in 100 Foust Building by noon on 
February 14th; applications from incoming freshmen or transfer students 
must be received by May 15th.

- The New Strong College Writing Corner -

Thanks to the very good offices of Strong College Fellow Karen Meyers, 
Director of the University Writing Center in the McIver Building, 
Cornelia Strong College has its very own Writing Center annex beginning 
this Monday, January 30th.  Strong College students Meg Campbell and Amy 
Garrett have been trained by Ms. Meyers, and will be available every 
Monday and Wednesday in the Library from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. to offer 
advice and counsel for anyone working on a writing assignment for any 
course.  Clear writing is one of the most important skills one can 
develop while in college, and the Strong College Writing Corner can help 
you — be sure to take advantage of it!

- More Library News -

Prof. Jim Clark of the English Department has very generously donated a 
nearly complete set of the Greensboro Review to the Strong College 
Library.  The Greensboro Review is a nationally recognized literary 
magazine, published by the University since 1966.  It has carried the 
work of many established writers and poets, as well as many generations 
of students in the University’s Master of Fine Arts in Writing program.

- Strong College in the News -

Check out the new section “Strong College in the News” on the bulletin 
board outside the College Office: it has articles and notices by and 
about Strong College people in the news, including a profile of CSC 
junior India Ochs, as well as articles and photographs from the 
Carolinian by Sherrill Hayes and Andrew Payne.  If you have something to 
contribute to the display (something about you, for example) please drop 
it off in the College Office.

- Do You Have E-mail? -

If you’re a Strong College member with email you should be a part of 
Strong-L, our “virtual common room.” Strong-L is an email discussion 
group open to all members of Strong College — we use it to tell jokes, 
chat about current events or College issues, critique Star Trek, and 
whatever else comes to mind.  To find out how to subscribe send an email 
message that reads info Strong-L to the address and 
instructions will be sent to you automatically, or just check the 
information sheet on the bulletin board outside the College Office.

- Poem-of-the-Week -

The Strong College Poem-of-the-Week is now appearing on the bulletin 
board outside the College Office.  This week’s poem is the opening 
section of Allen Ginsberg’s “Kaddish” (1959).
