FAFSA ONLINE
The 2007-08 FAFSA will be available online January 1, so make plans to fill it out as soon as possible after that date. Tennessee residents need to submit the FAFSA by February 15 even if estimated data has to be used. Please visit www.fafsa.ed.gov (CBU = 003482).


ASK FOR STUDY ABROAD FOR CHRISTMAS
All students interested in spending a month in Merry Old England from mid-May to mid-June, sign up NOW. The deadline is not until February, but the spaces are limited at Edge Hill; $100 will hold your place until February. There is still room on the London side trip as well. When you go home for Christmas tell Grandma, Aunt Tillie, and Cousin Bob that a donation to your Educational Fund would be a nice holiday remembrance. GOOD LUCK! Go to the study abroad webpage for more details or contact Study Abroad office at 321-3264 or the professors, Dr. Neal Palmer ("The History of Rock") or Conrad Brombach ("Sports Psychology").


 


Anyone who is still searching for some of that oft-elusive Christmas Spirit is advised to visit the Division of Student Life and admire the decorated office doors. Pictured above is the Counseling Center office, rendered truly magical by Ms. Sadie Lisenby and Antony Eddy ('09)
