Fellow Students,

Only a couple more days until spring break!  Most of the announcements  
below could be things to do when you're bored next week...write a poem  
or dig up some artwork for Vantage Point, take a survey for the  
Computer Depot or Writing Center, or be a good neighbor and shovel  
someone's walk if you're staying in town.  If you're feeling really  
ambitious, apply to be the SGA Treasurer!

Town Meeting Day had historic turnout this year!  It is estimated that  
89 percent of Burlington's eligible voters came out to the polls.  We  
were truly inspired to see so many of our peers participating and  
making themselves heard.  If you haven't seen the election results  
yet, you can find them here:

Have a wonderful break and safe travels!

Always at your service,

Kesha and DaVaughn

submissions of all sorts!  We welcome a wide variety of work- from  
poetry, prose, personal essays, critical essays and short stories to  
visual art of any medium.  Whether you prefer photography, sculpture,  
painting, illustration, digitally manipulated images or printmaking,  
we encourage your contribution.  All images are requested in .jpeg  
form.  Please send any and all submissions (or enquiries) to  
[log in to unmask] by March 17th for inclusion in this Spring's edition.

   Take a Survey About Your Computer Helpline and Depot Experiences...

This survey is about your most recent experience with the UVM Helpline  
or UVM Computer Depot Clinic.  Please respond even if you have never  
used the services, as we are trying to get a rough estimate of which  
students use the services, and which do not.
Another main goal of our data collection is determining the best hours  
of availability for students to access these services, so we are very  
interested in the questions about hours of operation.  Thank you!


   Visit Growing Vermont for Local Products in the DC

"With 240,000 households in Vermont, it translates into about $1.3  
billion spent on food by Vermonters each year. If Vermonters were to  
shift just 10% of their food purchases to buying locally grown food  
products, that could potentially add an additional $130 million to
Vermont's economy"

And did you know that we have a student run store right here on campus  
that sells only local products?!   Well, we most certainly do, so be  
sure to visit the Growing Vermont store in the Davis Student Center to  
make a difference with your purchase.   Growing Vermont is located  
across from the Print and Mail Center just down the hall from Brennans

Come visit us today!

   Snow Shovelers Needed!

The City of Burlington is looking for volunteers for their Operation  
Snow Shovel program.  With every large storm there are new calls from  
people looking for help.  We have not received any new calls yet but  
expect to.  The program matches elderly and disabled people with  
volunteers who shovel their walk when there is 3 or more inches of  
snow with in 24-48 hours after a storm.  If you would like to help  
please contact Sara at 865-7548 or at [log in to unmask]

   The Writing Center would LOVE your help!

The Writing Center is conducting a survey of the student body to  
determine better ways to publicize the services offered. This SHORT,  
10 question survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete,  
and can serve as a GREAT way to procrastinate on homework! Results of  
this survey will be used in a student's research project in English  
105, looking into better marketing strategies for the Writing Center.  
All responses to this survey are completely anonymous. Your  
involvement would be greatly appreciated!

~Thank You, The Writing Center
