Weekly Newsletter from your President

July 25, 2003

We are entering out last month before its time to head back to class!  I don't know about you, but I cannot believe how fast time is flying by.  I'm really looking forward to having our class come back together again for one last semester.
In preparation for the fall semester, I have put together some information you may find useful.  Please let me know if you have any questions and I'd be happy to get the answers for you.  Be warned that some of the information in this email is just FYI and has nothing to do with school.  I just thought you'd be interested in knowing if you don't already.
National Do Not Call Registry
If you have not heard, there is now a national "do not call" list that is managed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).  Signing up with the list is free and gives you the opportunity to limit telemarketing calls.  The official date telemarketers must comply with the list is October 1, 2003.  Your phone number will remain on the list for 5 years.  Be sure to visit the website to find out more information and sign up!
At the end of the Winter semester you had the opportunity to pre-order your textbooks at a discounted rate.  These books are expected to arrive when we return to classes.  Remember, the books will be delivered to the campus you'll be at this fall.
Non-Accelerator Fall Orientation
For those of you who are just arriving to Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo for classes, here is some information regarding your fall orientation.
The P3 orientation for non-accelerators is going to be on 8/21/03, the Thursday before classes start.  There will be two sessions, one in Kalamazoo in the morning and one in Grand Rapids in the afternoon.  The college is currently working on the agenda, so times have not been set yet.  An email will be going out to everyone with details and a copy of the agenda once it's completed.  This will happen sometime mid to end of next week.
Fall Class Schedule
The class schedule for this fall has been posted on the student website.  To find it, go to and click on the link to our class.
I hope this answers some of your questions to begin.  Please let me know if you need any other information and I'll be happy to find the answers for you.
Enjoy the rest of the summer and I'll be in touch with you again very soon.
