The Census is Monday
Welcome to Spring Quarter!  As many of you know, I was out of town last week, thus there was no TT.  The most important issue right now - next Monday, April 20 is the Census.  Please drop any students who have not participated in your class (according to your policies as set forth in your syllabus) prior to submitting the census.  You should drop them sooner, rather than later, as students dropped on Monday will receive a W, counting as one enrollment, which cuts our repeat business.  As always, there will be many students clamoring to be reinstated for various reasons.  Beginning this quarter, I will only sign reinstatements if a) you dropped them by mistake, or b) they can verify their reason in writing - that doesn't mean they write me an email, I will need to see some type of official verification of hospitalization, etc.

This is the last week for late enrollment. 
I won't be signing any late adds after Friday, so if you have given out add codes, be sure to remind the students to use them!  They are not magic - just having one does not mean they are enrolled.  Please check your rosters at every class meeting to be sure all the students attending are enrolled.

The census is one of the most important parts of our job.  It is how the college is reimbursed by the state for our enrollment, and thus, how we all get paid.  If you need any help with your census, please let me know and I will walk you through the process!

Division Meeting Next Friday, April 24
Our Spring Division Meeting will be held Friday, April 24 in 1501, Appreciation Hall from 12PM-1PM.  There are a lot of changes coming up and I need some time to get my own act together as far as presenting the package to you (no, nothing horrible, just changes).  Things, in general, are good, but as always, time marches on, and one thing I have learned after 26 years here is the college is always in a state of change, nothing remains the same forever (except the census and turning in your grades on time).

Gough Performs in Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?
Marital strife has never been so wickedly fun. George (our own Tom Gough) and Martha, a sharp-tongued and dysfunctional couple, invite a new young professor and his wife over for cocktails following a late night faculty party. Over the course of the evening, the unwitting guests are drawn into a tour de force of humiliation, frustration and manipulation that will leave everyone’s cards face-up on the table and a marriage in tatters.
Los Altos Stage Company through May 3
