On the first day of examinations
my true love gave to me
a snowstorm upon a bare tree. . . .

AND AS EXAMS for the winter term get under way, about the only other thing that's happening is meetings:

An open forum on "varsity promotions and communications", sponsored by the athletics department, from 4 to 6 p.m. today in Physical Activities Complex room 2045. The same session happens tomorrow, same place, 10 a.m. to noon. Sign up with Jennifer McCormick at ext. 5823 if you plan to attend, the department asks.

A public meeting on co-operative education ("what is your opinion of this department and its activities?") from 12 noon to 1 p.m. in Arts Lecture Hall room 113. It's sponsored by the working group on co-op education that's part of the Commission on Institutional Planning.

The annual meeting of the University Faculty & Staff (Waterloo) Credit Union Limited, at 7 p.m. in the Flamingo Room, South Campus Hall.

Looking ahead to tomorrow, another of the "working groups" of the Commission on Institutional Planning has an open meeting scheduled. This one is about "international connections", and will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Friday in Needles Hall room 3004. Among the many issues that might be raised: funding for international research; overseas co-op work terms; services for international students at UW; "cross-cultural training" for staff. More information: Pauline O'Neill of the international programs office, poneill@mc1adm, who chairs the working group.

RECREATION and leisure studies students hold their third annual Graduate Leisure Research Symposium, all day today in Matthews Hall. Keynote speaker is Ellen Weissinger of the University of Nebraska, whose intriguing topic is "Secret Research Stuff: Important Things Your Advisor Never Told You". Information: ext. 3013.

EXAM SCHEDULE: Here's a reminder, in case anyone hasn't heard yet, that the exam for Business 111W is listed wrongly on the printed exam schedule. The exam will be held Monday, April 10, at 6:30 p.m. at Wilfrid Laurier University. (The examination schedule is also available in electronic form, and there the listing is correct.)
