Weekly Preview, September 10 to 17

We're headed into Week #2 of classes, and there's a lot going on! 

In addition to the events listed below, remember that Add/Drop ends Monday, September 20th.  If you have questions or concerns about your schedule, make sure you see your advisor.

Take note of the information sessions offered by departments for prospective majors.  In some cases, you cannot get into the major unless you attend an info session. 

Here's what you might want to attend in the coming week:

Monday, September 13, 3:30 pm. Public Health Group Advising Sessions. If you are interested in declaring Public Health as your major or switching to Public Health from another Major, follow the link to sign up for a group advising session. If you have recently joined the Major, it is also an opportunity to get valuable information about opportunities, courses, sequencing classes, and the field in general. Arnold House, Room 321

Monday, September 13, 6:30 pm. Basic Math (R1) Exemption Test. The R1 requirement can no longer be satisfied through the Math Placement Exam. Passing the R1 exam (at least 12 out of 20 correct) will satisfy the R1 requirement for graduation but will not result in the awarding of any credits. There are, however, credit courses that will also satisfy the R1 requirement.

Monday, September 13, Tuesday, September 14 and Wednesday, September 15, 6-8:00 pm. The Boltwood Project Recruitment Nights. The BOLTWOOD Project ™ is a community service learning course; interested students MUST attend one of these meetings to sign up/apply. Placements earn graded academic credit. Monday and Tuesday’s programs will be in the Student Union Ballroom; Wednesday’s event is in the Cape Cod Lounge.

Isenberg School of Management On Campus Transfer Group Information Sessions.  If you are currently a UMass student and you want to apply to enter any of the Isenberg School of Management Programs, you MUST attend an information session (for ANY/EACH major you want to apply for) and complete an application/statement of interest. If you intend to apply for any of these majors, you can click on the major (below) for more information about on-campus transfer, and plan to attend the info sessions listed below!
