CS50 in Widener
Students and teaching fellows congregate in Widener Library for one of many CS50 office hours planned for the coming months. In prior years, office hours were held in places like Annenberg and Mather House, but this year will feature them for the first time in the historic library.
Happy Almost Study Card Due Day! Study cards are due tomorrow at 5 p.m., which means we’re all probably scrambling right now to get our “advising hold” “lifted” so that we can finally “enroll” in our classes and not just “validate” them. The fact that study cards are due soon also sadly reminds us of the fact that blissful shopping week is over and we unfortunately cannot put off doing homework because the “oh, maybe I’m not actually taking this class so I won’t do the reading just in case since I have better things to do with my life” excuse just doesn’t fly anymore.

IN THE ATMOSPHERE

It’s going to be another blisteringly hot day, albeit less humid and more windy than the day before, so we guess that’s something. Enjoy the nice weather while you can, because it’s going to be raining on and off for the rest of the week!
