I'm sure that most of know that many science courses fill up very quickly at UVU. Additionally, course co-requisites and pre-requisites can also cause problems with registration for some students. Because of these difficulties, the Biology Department and the Chemistry/Earth Science/Physics advisors will be available to help with fall registration via e-mail for many science courses on registration nights for Seniors and Juniors.
We will be available via e-mail from 11:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. on the mornings of:
March 30th, when registration opens for students with 110+ credits
March 31st, 90+ credits
April 1st, 60+ credits
Although your e-mails may be answered by Thayne Dickey (the Biotechnology Advisor), Tom Liljegren (the Chemistry/Earth Science/Physics Advisor), or myself, please direct your question to my e-mail address (email@example.com) and it will be distributed to whoever can best address your question at that time. Hopefully, we can help with registration problems so that you are able to register for the courses that you need.

TEDx Keynote: Joe Landolina CSH Presentation
Event: GIANT Steps Spring Carnival
Date: Saturday, March 28, 2015
Time: 5:00 pm to 8:45 pm
Place: Lavelle Edwards Stadium @ BYU in Provo
FOOD WILL BE PROVIDED FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS (please RSVP)
ON Saturday March 28, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. there's an opportunity to make a huge difference in the community by providing free child care for parents of children with autism. We will be putting on an Easter Carnival in The Blue Room at Lavelle Edwards Stadium; When you arrive at the stadium follow the signs that will direct towards the childcare section, not the auction. We need lots of volunteers to run the games and give out prizes. Anyone is welcome to volunteer (and be in charge of your own carnival game!) Come join us; you'll be glad you did!
This is an event run almost exclusively by volunteers. We will put on a carnival for autistic kids and their siblings ages 0 – 12, so that their parents can participate in an auction going to benefit autism awareness/research. Don't miss out!
Participation can count towards any service or leadership requirement you may have for Grad. School or a service learning / leadership class. The Spring Carnival is a great way to see what is involved in helping people with special needs, and it will be an excellent opportunity to see if you want to volunteer with the other activities we have during the year as well. Many of you have helped with events like this and know that this is an incredibly rewarding experience. In addition it is also a blast!
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we know how much food to buy. You can also ask any questions by either sending an email to email@example.com or text one of the volunteer directors:
We need lots of volunteers to help make this night a success, and we want to facilitate everybody's preferences for helping out. So if you want to work with a specific game or activity let us know.
Volunteers PLEASE ARRIVE at 5 p.m., and stay to help clean up after the event is finished. Thank you!!! When everyone helps setup and takedown go by much faster.
Bring your friends, roommates, significant others, or family members to volunteer with you; the more the merrier! Volunteers don’t need to be certified to help with this event.
