Having trouble deciding which classes to take next semester? Don’t worry! Starting today (November 4th) and going through November 22nd, Academic Advising is taking walk-ins. Simply drop by between 8:30am and noon and between 1pm and 3:30pm and talk to an adviser who is free. It is suggested that you look at your enrollment date in your SIS and meet with an advisor 2-3 days prior to your registration date. You don’t have to do this-you can meet the hour before you sign up for classes if you want-but it is recommended. The Academic Advising offices are in Student Services room 1600. If you go down the stairs in the Union, past the Grille and Herberts and Gerberts, and then passed the Dean’s office, you will find Academic Advising to your left.

|I hope that everyone is going to have a fun (and safe) day. Today I thought it would be fun to teach you how to make Spiderweb Cupcakes. It’s fun, easy, and good for people on a budget! Simple buy any cake mix you want, vanilla frosting, and black decoration gel. Make the cake into cupcakes (the box will give you instructions) and then frost them. Make 3-4 circles with the black decoration gel in the cupcake, a small one, a medium one around that one, and then a large one around that one. Then take a toothpick and drag it through the center of the cupcake to the end. Do this about six times around the cupcake and ta-da! You have a spiderweb cupcake. It’s easy, it’s fun, and your friends will appreciate the treat. The pictures below are courtesy of http://littlebirdiesecrets.blogspot.com/. Visit their blog if you need an idea for a handcrafter project! They have a lot of great tutorials.|
