Cougars & Mustangs
BY CHRIS WHITE-SANBORN
Summer is over and gone, over and gone. Summer is dying, dying. Well, not really, especially not for Cal Poly students, but in some respects it can certainly feel that way. Let’s put some affairs in order, then, shall we?
While a Poly student may yet breathe easy, possibly not having yet returned from the pit from whence she/he came, Cuesta-goers have little time left before fall semester starts. Our friend Jay Thompson at Cuesta would like to remind the masses that the semester starts Aug. 19, and there are classes still available! In fact, if you haven’t taken care of online registration yet, you can go forth to walk-in registration between Aug. 12 and 16 at both the SLO and North County campuses, as well as the South County Center at Arroyo Grande High School. This will allow students to also receive assistance by admissions staff and school counselors, perfect for figuring out just what is needed to make the trip around the board as short and enriching as possible. The SLO campus offers this service at its Student Service Center, Building 3100 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., excepting on Friday, Aug. 16 when it will be available from 11 a.m. 4 p.m. At the North County campus, you’ll find walk-in registration at 2800 Buena Vista Drive, Building N3000 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with Aug. 16 instead being from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. And at the South County Center, which is the 900 Wing of AGHS, Aug. 16’s difference will be that it’s closed, but the other days go from 4:30 to 9 p.m. In addition, late registration will be available from Aug. 19-30 at these schools, which is the same hours for its Fridays and non-Fridays at North and South Counties, and at the SLO campus goes from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the first half (19-23) and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the second half (26-30), with both Fridays (23 and 30) having the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Also, don’t take the death joke too seriously, OK? College is like a whole new life in itself. Besides, I’m too young. I still have unfinished business! For example, a reader sent in the following question the other day, in relation to the Resonance Vocal Ensemble Concert I mentioned last week: “...Do we need reservations [for the concert]? If so, do you have a contact number? Thanks for any information, [reader].”
And in response, the intern spaketh:
Nope! You don’t need a reservation of any sort to attend, just arrive at the San Luis Obispo Mission at 8 p.m. for the free event. For those who missed reading about it last week, Resonance Vocal Ensemble is a local choral group that has been rehearsing over the summer to bring music to the Central Coast (not that it was lacking any amount whatsoever of that). Since only a few days remain before the concert, and I’ve already plugged it, I won’t go on at length about it here, but I will point out the freshly-uploaded soundcloud.com/resonancevocalensemble/rve-sneak-preview for what is essentially a teaser of the concert.
