Anonymous asked: Are we only allowed to get a job on campus if we are a work-study student? I went on scotlink and it had not "jobs" section on the tabs.
No, you can get a job on campus without work-study. The job description will tell you whether you need to have work-study to apply. If you’re an incoming student, you won’t have access to the “jobs” section of Scotjobs for a few weeks after quarter begins. If you don’t have access towards the end of October, call the Career Center at (951) 827-3631.
Do classes really start on the 27th? On a Wednesday? I just want to make sure. And we’re supposed to follow our schedule normally and stuff right? Like even if we have a lab or something as a first class?
The 27th is a Thursday, and yes, they really start that day. Follow your schedule normally and check your Rmail/iLearn page. Usually, labs aren’t held the first week of quarter, but you should receive prior notice if your lab/discussion has been cancelled. If you don’t hear anything from your professor, assume your class is still proceeding as scheduled.
is p.e. mandatory?
No. It can apply towards your degree and you’ll see a section for it on your degree check, but it’s not mandatory.
Since school is starting, you guys should have weekly posts that highlight a student at UCR. Like, randomly pick a student to be a guest writer and they can chronicle their life for that week. This way, people can be introduced to different places, people, classes, and clubs on campus. You could have people e-mail you if they’re interested in becoming the focus of the week or ask a random student/ friend you find interesting if they would like to participate.
This is a great idea and we’ll discuss this more at the next writers meeting, but if anyone is interested in writing about a day in their life at UCR, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We’ll publish you! It’ll be fun!
Would you suggest I take the Chass f1rst history class if I already have 12 credits? Thanks.
If you’re an incoming freshman and you need a history class as part of your breadth requirements, yes, I think you should take it. CHASS F1RST lectures are a fantastic way to get used to university life in a supportive environment. If you can handle the course load, go for it.
I know you can’t have coffee makers in the dorms but this is different. I have an espresso machine that has no heating plate like a coffee maker. you just put two scoops of ground coffee in it and it shoots out espresso shots for my coffee. this should be fine to have in the dorms right?
It sounds fine, but I’d call Housing (or talk to your RA) to be sure. I’d call them for you, but I won’t wanna because I’m currently eating cake. CAAAKE.
