In short, they'd like pledges -- new, renewed, increased -- to the Fund, which is the on-campus fund-raising appeal. "Last year," says the letter, "UW faculty and staff contributed over $270,000 to priority projects such as scholarships and awards, library support, and teaching and laboratory equipment."
A "Priority Projects List" mentions these, among many other ways that money can be put to use:
And the letter -- signed by Bev Marshman of the applied mathematics department and Doug Morton of the Davis Centre library -- notes: "Just as the keystone keeps an arch intact and strong, UW faculty and staff are providing essential support for Waterloo's future."
Anyway, SWN is running the quiz to make people more aware of environmental issues -- and answers -- on campus. The deadline is today at 4:30, says Jeremy Steffler, third-year environmental engineering student who's organizing the thing. Copies of the quiz, if you didn't spot it on a newsgroup last week, can be picked up at the Student Life Centre. There are prizes from food services, Graphics Express, the bookstore, the SLC and the Federation of Students.
New Fellows this year:
The key figures are Tom Leslie, who will produce Rosencrantz, and Sean Vivian, who will direct it. "The idea was to provide another outlet for the abundant supply of acting, technical and creative talent boasted by the university. The long range plan is to create a professional company with strong ties to the excellent drama program at UW."
So, next week sees the production of the well-known absurdist play by Tom Stoppard, about two minor figures in Shakespeare's "Hamlet". "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are missing and presumed dead at the end of Hamlet. Stoppard's play finds them lost without memory, place or time vainly searching for answers, any sort of answers. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern examines the issue of human mortality in a manner witty and satirical yet poignant and at times dark."
It'll be staged Wednesday through Saturday of next week, at 8 p.m. in Studio 180 in the Humanities building. Tickets are $10 (students and seniors $8) from the Humanities box office. "Sales will also be made at the door but seating is limited so reservations are recommended."
