ASB & FYSOP Are Just Around the Riverbend

January 25, 2010

  • New applicants for FYSOP Coordinators and/or FYSOP Program Assistant must turn in their application by this Thursday, January 28th at 5pm! For more information, check out http://www.bu.edu/dos/studentleaders/
  • ASB really is, in the wise words of Pocohontas, just around the river bend!
    • The second ASB info fair is tomorrow at 7pm in the GSU’s Terrace Lounge on the second floor
    • We are in the final countdown to ASB ONLINE REGISTRATION!
      • Registration is online. The link will be posted at www.bu.edu/csc.  The link can also be found at http://www.bu.edu/csc/programs/asb/index.html.  It should appear by the end of this week in collaboration with the launch of the new CSC website, although it will not become ‘active’ until 8am on the 31st.
      • There will be NO QUESTIONS on the online registration system. Instead, you will be sent a PDF after your trip is confirmed with questions you need to answer.  The sheet and the remainder of the payment will be due by February 12th, 4pm to the CSC.
      • You can register 1 friend to go on the same trip with you! There will be a section where you can add an additional BU ID and name. Your friend will not need to register independently.
      • The price of each trip has increased slightly due to the unexpected rise in cost of vans. Non-flying trips are $325 and flying trips are $675. We apologize for any inconvenience and the late notification.
      • A non-refundable deposit of $150 is due upon registration. All participants in our flying trips are required to pay this deposit, regardless of scholarship application.
      • We have a limited number of scholarships available. They will be given based on your financial need as determined by the University. Due to the limited funds we will not be able to give any one volunteer more than a $200 award.  Scholarship letters are due to the CSC by 4pm, February 1st.
      • If you have any questions or concerns please email altbreak@bu.edu

See you at the Info Fair!

We’re REALLY Moving.

January 11, 2010

We are very excited to announce that a brand spanking new CSC website will be launched by this Wednesday, January 13th. soon!

With lots of help from Kat in Dean Elmore's office, our blog is movin' on to our website.

Our new website will be a one-stop shop for the CSC. That means that our blog will soon be hosted on our website, http://www.bu.edu/csc. To read our blog and get lots more information, you should visit our website from now on.

The CSC’s Winter Newsletter will also be available on our new website.

See you this semester!
