Elephants: A Talk by Laurence Möhr Kruger, Ph.D.

Laura Lupton ’12 sends in an event that combines the four (or five, depending on how you count it) most important elements for living a fulfilling life:

Do you like Elephants? Do you like South Africa? Do you like Plants and Ethnobotany? Do you like Conservation?

If the answer to any of the above is YES! (which, let’s admit, it obviously was), then come to a cool talk at Earth House this Thursday, Nov. 4th!

Laurence Möhr Kruger, Ph.D., a professor and director at the Organization for Tropical Studies in South Africa, will give a presentation about elephants in South Africa and their interaction with the plants and environment around them. His extensive field work in the national parks of South Africa and research in the field has given him a unique ability to shed light on their interactions, which can have consequences about plant and animal relationships everywhere.

Date: Nov. 4
Time: 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM
Place: Earth House
Cost: How about a link to the facebook event instead?

Program Housing Applications Open Today

Program housing applications are now available through your eportfolio. Since it can be an annoyingly confusing process, I’ll try to help make it simple for you:

Application Process:
(All of this is accessed through your e-portfolio)

1. Sign your housing contract online (I think you click a box or hit accept, something like that)
2. Rank your choices of which houses/community-based living (ie WestCo, single-sex or substance-free halls) you’d like to live in next year. You rank them 1-3, 1 being your super-duper-oh-god-please-let-me-in choice. You can only do three. Really.
3. Fill out the application for the three (or less) houses/CBL you’ve ranked. Applications actually do matter! Put some time and thought into them.

Application Timeline:

Feb 12th: Applications open.
Feb 26th: Applications due by 11:59pm.
March 4th: Applicants are offered bids, waitlisted, or declined. This is listed in the same part of your eportfolio that you applied in.
March 24th: Applicants need to accept or decline bids by 11:59pm.

Deadlines are very important for program housing, so make sure you get your applications and such in on time! Don’t lose out on having a chance to live in a great community just for missing a deadline.

And since there are now a huuuuuuge amount of houses, I’ll spare you the list here. But check out the Reslife website for the full list. Also be sure to check out the Program Housing Fair today (Feb. 12th) from 2-5pm in Beckham Hall, and House Hopping Day on Feb. 21st from 12pm-5pm.
