7:50 am - ATTN: people with a .edu email address

Amazon is offering a free 1 year subscription to Amazon Prime (Free 2 day shipping!): http://amzn.to/bSH8jP

This is being marketed towards college students but all you need is a valid .edu email address.

Now is a time that I wish I was still in college. Oh well, what can you do?

i need to get a petition signed to repeat a course for a second time. i pretty much failed the first time, and the second time got a C-, but i need to take it again since some of my upper divs required for my major have a prereq of at least a C in that class. my grades weren't so great before, but have been improving (mostly B's now). any tips on what i should say to persuade the adivsers to let me take the class for a third time?

1:23 pm - Recommendation letters

I graduated in June 2007, but I need a letter of recommendation from a professor for a school I'm applying to now. It'd be easier if I was still a student at UCSC, but considering I haven't seen the professor in 2 years makes this a little weird. Probably isn't too uncommon a situation though, so figured I'd ask. Any tips and advice on how to approach this would be helpful.

4:57 pm - MUSC-11B: Introduction to Jazz

Taught by K. Hester. Is the class/professor as bad as everyone says? It's the only class that fits well in my schedule next year, but I've heard terrible things about it. Thoughts?

8:21 pm - UCSC Film Dept

I'm looking to transfer to UCSC next winter semester and i was wondering if anyone could give me some first hand insiders guides to the film school there. Whats good, whats bad, what equipment are they using? How prepared does this school get you for working inside the industry (but not specifically hollywood)

I'm currently going to school in detroit and most of the professors here don't have very much production experience. how knowledgable are the professors at UCSC? I don't really know what other specifics i might add, but i'd just like to hear some first hand testimonials from people in the film production major.

12:42 pm - Summer Reading

I will be a fall transfer student majoring in history and I was wondering if there was a summer reading list or other books that might be recommended. I know on the history web page that the following is given.

Beginning-Intermediate Reading
E.H. Carr, What is History?
Marc Bloch, The Historian's Craft
R.G. Collingwood, The Idea of History

Advanced Reading
Keith Jenkins, Re-Thinking History
Robert Berkhofer, Beyond the Great Story
Paul Veyne, Writing History

Much Appreciated
