On The Quads

New registration system
This spring, students can sign up for their fall 2000 classes on-line. The new College registration system relies on a special algorithm giving weight to both class year and the order in which a student submits course choices--a feature the College hopes will result in more students getting their first-choice classes. Students will also be able to note their course preferences for winter and spring quarters via the Internet, allowing the College to better assess and plan for demand. Previously, students handled registration logistics through their College advisers, who are now expected to have more time to spend on other student concerns.

Future world leaders
Nearly 200 U of C students and alumni gathered at Chicago's Palmer House Hilton February 4-6 for the 12th annual Model United Nations of the University of Chicago (MUNUC). The conference is intended to educate high-school students about the mechanics of the United Nations and about contemporary world affairs. This year's conference attracted some 2,153 students from across the continent, including two schools from Canada and two from Mexico.

Suggestions to dine on
First-years have Orientation, third-years Taking the Next Step, and fourth-years Senior Week. Now second-years have a program of their own: the new Second Year Dinner Series. Every second-year will be invited to attend a dinner with College administrators during the 11-week run of the series. Held in Harper conference rooms, the College-sponsored dinners host no more than 50 students on a given night and are intended to give second-years a chance to share opinions about their experiences at the U of C.
