Items for the Strong College Newsletter may be submitted at any time

- The First Annual Buffalo Creek Regatta! -

The First Annual Buffalo Creek Regatta will take place on Wednesday, 
April 5th, from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m on Buffalo Creek behind Moore-Strong 
Hall!  It will be the most talked-about event of the spring semester, 
we have no doubt.  Enter your own boat!  The rules in brief are: (1) 
maximum boat size: 8 × 4 inches; (2) no powered boats, although sails 
are OK; (3) entry fee $1.00 — register in advance with the College 
Council to guarantee yourself a place (entries will be accepted at the 
time of the race, but only if there is space available); (4) all boats 
will be inspected by the Officials before they go into the water (the 
boats, that is, not the Officials).  The Regatta will be open to any 
individual or group in the University.  Watch for more announcements 
campus-wide.  Want to help plan?  Want to be an Official?  Come to the 
College Council meeting Tuesday night at 10:00 p.m. in the Committee 
Room (230).

- Strong Advice! -

Several Strong College Fellows have volunteered to hold advising 
sessions prior to the registration period for Fall 1995.  All interested 
students are invited to the following sessions, all of which will take 
place in the Junior Common Room: (1) Dr. Rob Cannon, Associate Professor 
of Biology and Chair of the Pre-Medical Advisory Committee, will answer 
questions and sign registration cards as appropriate for biology majors 
and students in medical, dental, veterinary, physical therapy, and 
occupational therapy curricula this Tuesday, March 21st, from 6:30 - 
7:30 p.m.  (2) Dr. Kenneth Caneva, Professor of History, will help 
Strong College history majors plan their schedules for Fall 1995 this 
Thursday, March 23rd, from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m.  He will also be pleased to 
talk with anyone who is considering a history major and would like more 
information.  (3) Dr. Virginia Karb, Assistant Dean of the School of 
Nursing, will meet with any students seeking information about the 
nursing major at UNCG this Thursday, March 23rd, from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m.; 
this will be an informational session — declared nursing majors will 
still have to have their registration cards signed by their faculty 
advisors.  (4) Sheila Schurer, Director of the College Center for Pre-
Major Advising, will meet with students who are undecided on a major 
this Thursday, March 23rd, from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m.  She will be able to 
propose strategies for course selection, answer questions on AULER/CLER, 
and suggest other sources of assistance, but she will not sign 
registration cards at this session.
