Degree Question

Hello everyone!

I hope all of your summers are going well!

Before the rush for course selection begins, I just had a general question/clarification. When doing a Major/Minor degree, is it possible for a course credit to count towards both of your separate major and minor requirements? For example, I'm entering second year as a DEVS major and POLS minor. If I take a POLS 200 course that is also a DEVS-eligible course, can it count towards both of my DEVS major and POLS minor requirements?

I know that in medial concentrations, its not allowed. But what about major/minor?

Thank you in advance!

EDIT: Oh! And I was actually hoping to address a rumor I've been hearing. One of my friends claims that taking a major/minor concentration is pretty much a waste of time since only your major will be written on your diploma. Is this true?

it's that time of the year again...

i have a couple questions regarding some courses i've been looking at.  any thoughts would be appreciated on any of the following courses:

BIOM 300* - Modeling Techniques in Biology
PSYC 370* - Brain and Behaviour II
COGS 100* - Intro to Cognitive Science
CISC 121* - Intro to Computing Science I
NSCI 323* - Cellular Neuroscience
NSCI 324* - Systems Neuroscience
BCHM 310 - General Biochemistry

also any third year life science course in general... i'm doing a major in life science, so i have quite a few options as to what i can take, seeing i have no core courses.  i do need 2.5 "life science" credits at the 300 level or above though...

So I just accepted a full-time position at Lonestar for this summer and I was wondering has anyone ever worked there or known of someone who worked there and can tell me a little about the actual working environment?
Anything is good. If you've heard horror stories about the kitchen, staff or owners or something, that'd be helpful too!

Thanks in advance! :)

Queen's Anime Club Showing Friday March 26, 2010

Anime Fans,

It's time for our most anticipated showing of the year:

This Friday only, from 7pm to midnight in BioSci 1102, you too can participate in the democratic election of next years executive.
Also, turn your friends into giant cardboard-based fighting robots!

For those unfamiliar, cardboard mecha is our yearly event where you get into teams of 3-5 and use cardboard and duct tape to turn one of your group members into a mecha robot. We'll provide cardboard, exacto knives, and duct tape; and you are welcome to bring any other materials you desire (paint, scissors, etc.) Mecha will then face off using their elite short presentation/skit skills. The audience votes to determine this year's galactic cardboard mecha champion.

And right afterward, you will have the opportunity to run for and vote on the new executive for Queen's Anime Club 2010-2011. Any club member can run for any position with the exception of President and Treasurer which must be returning Queen's students as per AMS policy. Positions available would be listed on our website (if the AMS finally got around to hosting it), so instead you'll have to settle for the brief summary below:

President: Deals with the AMS, keeps the club running and on track, books rooms, in charge of everything.
Vice-President: Finds Anime for showings, takes over when other exec are absent, assists president.
Treasurer: Keeps financial records, handles food and drink sales, manages club budget.
Secretary: Emails general membership, keeps minutes, organizes club records.
Public Relations: Promotes events to the public, increase membership.
Services Director: Acquisition and storage of food and drink, recommended that you own or are good friends with someone who owns a car.

We're looking forward to seeing some new faces join our executive team.
In between all of this voting and building, we still have a great selection of Mecha shows lined up:
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz

See you this Friday

Has anyone taken Children's Lit (ENGL207)?

Did you enjoy it? Was it difficult? What did you like the most/least about it? Do you need to know a lot of chem/bio for nutrition (I don't have any..)?
