So that CSJ readers can find a single, comprehensive listing of each day's happenings in the same place each week, any information involving an event should be submitted as a calendar entry. Please submit as notices only information that doesn't involve an event. For example, examination procedures for students should be submitted as a notice, but a meeting to explain examination procedures should be submitted as a calendar listing. Contact Emily Weir, CSJ editor, with any questions at x2809 or by email (email@example.com).
The College Street Journal needs your help publishing news about a variety of MHC people. Does someone in your office or residence hall have a hidden talent? Have you published a book, won an award, or discovered an aspect of MHC that others would enjoy knowing about? Do you have a personal connection to a recent news story or a current hot discussion topic?
If you have news to share with the Mount Holyoke community (it doesn't have to be of earth-shaking proportions), send it to the communications office, Mary Woolley Hall.

The teas will be held February 26-April 11 (but not over midsemester break). Check CSJ listings for specific meeting/tea times.
Mount Holyoke has joined a consortium of colleges sponsoring the Shakespeare Program, a new fall-semester study abroad program offered in conjunction with the Shakespeare Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon and the British American Drama Academy in London. Participants will take two courses on Shakespeare and one on dramatic criticism (which includes seeing weekly London plays), and may choose their remaining courses from offerings in English literature, drama, acting, and theatre design. The program is open only to students from the consortium colleges, and is designed primarily for majors in English or theatre arts who have a GPA of 3.2 in their majors and 3.0 overall. Applications are due March 15 for the fall 1996 semester. Anthony Branch, director of the British American Drama Academy, will meet with students interested in the program on February 23 (see calendar listing). For more information and application forms, contact the Office of International Affairs.
