Recycling: Two Ways to Win When You Get Back in the Spring!
This spring, Amherst College is rolling two recycling competitions into one. From Jan. 17 through March 27, Amherst will compete with colleges around the nation to see who can recycle the most material per person (including paper, cardboard and bottles and cans). The competition starts even earlier this year, so we need to hit the ground running (and recycling) as soon as everyone gets back in the spring. In addition, this year, the Amherst College Recycling Program is running our Residence Hall Recycling challenge concurrently with RecycleMania. So not only will you get to show which residence hall recycles the best on campus, but by competing against each other, we are all working together to try to win the national competition.

The Keefe Health Center will close for the Winter Recess at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 23, and will re- open for Interterm at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 4. Amherst College students remaining in the local area are eligible to receive medical care for urgent needs only at the University Health Services, at 413- 577-5000, when the Keefe Health Center is closed. Amherst students with emergencies need to contact the Campus Police at 413-542-2111.

The Writing Center Offers Support for Thesis Writers
Good instincts, clear thinking and a sense of academic style may be enough to produce first-rate college papers, but to succeed at the greater challenge of writing a multi-chapter thesis, an informed approach to the craft of writing may be helpful. We encourage thesis writers to visit the Writing Center early and often, whether for one-on-one sessions or for one of our many workshops. At this point, as you perhaps move towards completing your first chapter, you will not only hear feedback on that particular piece of writing, but also gain a perspective-- and some new approaches to writing-- that you can then apply as you write the remainder of your thesis.

Tree Removal Work on Campus Slated for January
The college will remove nine trees from campus during the month of January. The trees, which have been identified for takedown by a certified arborist, are being removed because of disease, past lightning strikes or extensive decay or because they create unsafe conditions in high-traffic areas on campus. Tree work will take place near the War Memorial, Merrill Apartments, Alumni House and Pratt Field. Any questions can be directed to Bob Shea at 413-542-7924.

Copyright License for Course Readings
Amherst College has purchased an academic campus license from the Copyright Clearance Center that will provide pre-paid permissions for copies of many course readings. Faculty and Academic Department Coordinators, wait! Check to see whether your required articles and book chapters are covered by the campus-wide license before you pay to reprint or scan texts. Check instructions for electronic and print reserves and for already licensed permissions. Call Margaret Groesbeck (x2098) or Susan Kimball (x8112) for more information about the campus license.
