Check out the recently updated YouTube Videos page here, which now includes videos filmed by the current Kin 241 TA Patrick Dessaulles! Hopefully this helps anyone studying for the lab final on Wednesday. Good luck!!

Course descriptions and prereqs

I linked this on Facebook recently, but I think it’s worth having here so it’s easy to find in case you missed it, or lost it, or aren’t in the Facebook group.

I’m talking, of course, about the list we’ve assembled of student-written course notes and prerequisites. It’s a valuable resource because it lets you more effectively plan your future semesters. You can check it out here.

Let’s say you could take 205 or 207 in the fall, and you aren’t sure which to pick. A quick look at the table shows you that the courses are prereqs for:

207: 381, 446

205: 304, 305, 306, 308, 310, 311, 312, 326, 343, 375, 382, 461.

The choice is pretty obvious. If you don’t take 205, you can’t get started on the core 300-level physiology classes, which are themselves prereqs for a bunch of stuff. Take 205.

See? Easy!

Website almost finished!

Finally got everything sorted out on the back end, so it looks like this is pretty much ready to go. Please let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions; it only takes a minute! I know some of it’s pretty sparse. Working on getting some photos and things to liven the place up a little.

I haven’t taken several of the classes listed on that list under the resources section, and it’s been a long time since I’ve taken several others. If you have some wisdom to pass on, by all means, do so.

Meeting minutes

Okay well that was a lot of work and took quite a long time, but now all of the meeting minutes as of the 2009-2010 semester are available online. The reason that I went to the trouble of manually copying them over and reformatting them (and I cannot emphasize enough how much it sucked to do this) is because now they’re searchable. So, if you want to see what kind of discussion we had regarding the Year End Party in a given year, you can probably search for “year end party 2011” and… hopefully it’ll work.

Hey everyone

Just a test post to try this out. It’s been a goal of mine for a while to get the BPKSA website off the ground again, ’cause we’ve seriously been talking about it for years and nothing’s ever come of it.

My intent is to create a centralized place where BPK students can find answers to questions they might have – about the department, volunteer opportunities, career resources, social events, wind, fire, all that kind of thing!

Take a look around, and give me feedback! It’s very much a work in progress, and there’s a lot of stuff that isn’t filled in yet. Since people keep asking, the lorem ipsum thing is nonsense Latin that’s really quite famous for its use as placeholder text. I’m surprised some of you have never seen it before.

In any case, here’s what things look like so far. Feel free to point out any errors I’ve made or if you think something would work better another way. Likewise, those course descriptions need to be filled out, so give me your thoughts!
