SAFS Majors: Summer/Autumn 2013 Courses and Registration Info

The Autumn Quarter 2013 Time Schedule is now available (All UW or FISH only) – registration begins on May 10. I’ve included a list of courses below that satisfy degree requirements, for reference.

MATH/CHEM/BIOL/PHYS

If you have started or completed the BIOL series, BIOL 180, 200 or 220 would be a good choice (since many upper division FISH courses have BIOL as a pre-req) – note that BIOL 200 has a pre-req of CHEM 220.

Over the UW holiday break, the SAFS Student Services Blog will be updated infrequently but rest assured that we’ll be back in full force when the quarter starts on January 7 so check back!

National Student Exchange!

Please distribute to students as you see fit. In order to obtain an NSE application, students must attend one of the information sessions listed below.
I am writing to invite you to consider the National Student Exchange (NSE). NSE gives you an opportunity to experience a different area with its unique cultural and academic opportunities. Since NSE’s beginning in 1968, more than 96,000 students have had the opportunity to participate in NSE, giving them the opportunity to:
· broaden their personal and educational perspectives
· experience new cultures
· explore new areas of study
· learn from different professors
· access new courses
· experience personal growth
· meet new people
· make new friends
· live in a different area
· investigate graduate schools
· seek future employment
Many returning UW students describe NSE as a life-changing experience which has made them more independent, self-confident and resourceful; expanded their risk-taking capabilities; and helped them better define their academic and career objectives. 

MyUW Now Mobile Friendly

MyUW Mobile has been released. The mobile-friendly version of MyUW was built in response to priorities expressed by UW students and gives them access to information they said they want most while on the go. Using a mobile device, registered students will be able to get course information, including instructor contact information, required textbooks, course web sites and classroom locations. Visit MyUW on your mobile device and automatically be directed to the mobile-friendly version.
