Point-and-click evaluations
Course evaluations have gone online. A new Web site managed by the Office of the Associate Dean of the College allows students to praise or criticize courses in every division. The site keeps tabs of past evaluations, with archives back to Autumn 1995.

The numbers are a-changing
After years of having more courses than course numbers, the University is converting its three-digit course numbering system to a five-digit system in the 2001-2002 academic year. The new system lets departments assign a permanent number to a course, rather than reusing numbers for different classes in alternating years. While many departments will simply add two zeros to the current numbers, course-heavy departments such as biology, anthropology, and history will breathe a sigh of relief.

Senior gift will keep on giving
The Class of 2001 senior class gift will underwrite a fine-arts fund supporting student-initiated projects in the visual and performing arts, with the gift and the class's efforts being commemorated in a space in the new Bartlett Quadrangle. Andy Hong, '01, who co-chairs fund-raising for the gift, says things are going well: the Senior Class Barbeque on April 26 had 20 percent participation by the class. If 60 percent of fourth-years contribute, Chicago trustee Peter May, AB'64, MBA'65, has promised to add $25,000 to the fund's total.

A nice send-off
Fourth-year biochemistry concentrator Jesse Bloom was one of ten U.S. students to receive Churchill Scholarships in March. And fourth-year men's basketball player Brad Henderson, a Rhodes scholar ("College Report," February/01), received the 2001 NCAA Walter Byers Scholarship. He is the second athlete in Chicago's history to receive the award.
