Does anyone know where to apply for Summer Pell? I went to the FA office and they told me to do it online so I figured they meant on the fafsa website... 

And can I only take 3 credits during the summer? It says up to 6 credits so just want to be sure, thanks!

2.5oz scoops are 31 cents plus tax where applicable. Limit 10 scoops per person, per purchase. Available 04/30/08, from 5pm to 10pm, at your local Baskin-Robbins while supplies last.

A donation of $100,000 will be made by Baskin-Robbins to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. At select stores throughout the country, you may also have a chance to donate to your local fire station.

...I know it's not QC-related, but guys, the Baskin Robbins 31 & Dunkin' Donuts place is roughly 2 blocks off-campus! And regular price for a scoop usually runs $2.25 or more. They do this every year, and it's a nice cheap outing. So enjoy!

(I might post a reminder again on the 30th, but no guarantees, ok?)

Summer Program in Shanghai, China

June 28 - August 4rd, 2008

The Purchase College summer program in China is located in Shanghai, the leading city and center of modernization which has made China a leader in the 21st century. New China can be found in the superb museums, galleries, dramatic skyline, exciting night-life, outstanding libraries, and world-class shopping and dining possibilities.

Shanghai still retains old China as well. Exploring the alleys and smaller byways, students can discover the culture of ancient China still resonant in the bird-and-flower streets, the sidewalk chess games, the tiny stalls, shops and markets, and the rich life of past and present. The program includes a week long tour of locations of historic and cultural significance as well as four weeks of study on a renowned Chinese university campus.

Thanks!
