Subject: [Econmaj] IMPORTANT!! Econ Advising Office closures/hours

Econ majors,

This email contains some important dates you should know about Econ Advising Office closures and hours:

*****We will only have 1 adviser in the department over the next few weeks during spring registration, so please be patient as it may take a little longer to respond to email, schedule appointments, and you may have to wait a bit longer during drop-in times. *****

Feb. 19 (Thursday) – closed for afternoon drop-in advising
Feb. 20 (Friday) – office closed for in-person advising
Feb. 27 (Friday) – office closed for in-person advising
Mar. 6 (Friday) – office closed for in-person advising

It is possible that other short closures may happen in during the course of the next few weeks (e.g. cancelled drop-in times). If it is urgent to see an adviser and our office is not available, you may also try the UAA advising office in Mary Gates Hall. Thank you for your understanding.

Lavender Graduation Committee – VolunteerOpportunity

The Q Center and Queer Student Commission (QSC) host Lavender Graduation as a time for the UW queer, trans*, two-spirit, same gender loving, and allied communities to come together and celebrate our multiple identities, our accomplishments, and sheer AWESOMENESS.

We are currently seeking volunteers who are interested in serving on the planning committee. Typically, the time commitment consists of a 1-hour meeting every other week, which will change to weekly meetings closer to the event or as needed. We also ask that committee members attend and volunteer the day of the ceremony.

This year’s Lavender Graduation will be celebrated on Tuesday, June 9th, 2015 from 6:00 – 8:30PM @ the UW Tower Mezzanine Level Lounge.

If you are looking for a way to get involved/stay connected with the Q Center, meet people, and share your ideas to make Lavender Graduation even more phenomenal than it already is, then the planning committee is for you!
