Hey upperclassmen! Remember when you could pick whatever general education classes you wanted, and still fulfill your requirements? Well, those days are over. See how the new "tiered" curriculum is working out for the next generation at the Tier One Student Conference scheduled, for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today. Students involved in this program will share their work, discussion-style, in the Temporary Office building (1731 E. Second St.). Free refreshments will be available for all attendees. Contact Yvonne Merrill at 621-3416 for more information.
Don't have a magical money tree growing in the office backyard? Then come to today's Finance Seminar and learn how to make your business budget work. Bhagwan Chowdhry (UCLA) will discuss "Resources, Real Options and Corporate Strategy" from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Room 315S of McClelland Hall. Lori Magloire has more information for you at 621-7554.
Good news: Size may not actually matter. France, for example, is hardly the biggest nation in the world, but, at one time, it had the biggest political clout. The relationship between "Political Power and Geographic Scale" will be demystified for you today from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. by John Agnew (UCLA). It's a Geography and Regional Development Colloquium, and it will be held in Room 404 of the Harvill building. Call Sharon Johnson at 621-1652 for details.
I think everyone needs a little support these days, what with the Kosovo situation and the brutal Colorado incident. Who's better to lean on than your fellow students? Celebrate the power of oneness tonight at the First Annual Tribute to Unity. Four cultural resource centers will have members on hand in the Rincon Room of the Student Union from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to answer your questions and become your new friends. The Department of Multicultural Programs and Services is sponsoring this, so be kind and RSVP (if possible) to Mai Luc at 621-3481.
Obscenities! Adult content! Real estate agents! If this is your idea of dramatic entertainment, come to the Directing Studio of the Drama building this evening for a performance of David Mamet's "Glengarry Glen Ross." There's some fine quality acting involved, too, for those of you who don't go to the theater just for the naughtiness factor. Tickets are free, but seating is limited, so arrive somewhat earlier than the 7:30 p.m. curtain call if you want a spot. Call the Fine Arts Box Office at 621-1162 to find out just how many people will be admitted.
Add a little variety to your life by attending the 6th Annual Asian American Cultural Association Talent Show. From 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., in Room 100 of the Social Sciences building, members and friends of the AACA will make you laugh, cry and drop your jaw in amazement. A special guest will be present, and a few lucky audience members will take home (via auction) some AACA students as "slaves." Contact Hana Mo, Vani Cao or Erwin Wong at 621-6481 for more information.
