There will be ISO meeting held on Thursday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m., Caloopia Room, WUC. Last time we discussed the place of the organization within the campus community and its goals: who are we and what are our objectives -- if any. If there are, then, what shall we do in order to "stay alive", or maybe we shouldn't do anything at all?.. As you may know, these are very controversial topics, and thus rational representation from the student body (you) is very important issue in itself. If you want to participate -- and you are highly encouraged to do so -- come and join us!

October 30, 2000

ISO Officers Meeting on Thursday, November 2-nd, at 6:30 p.m. in the Calapooia Room, WUC.

Hello! Good news: we launched our web-site. There are still a lot of things to be done before we might come up with something that is really helpfull and at the same time interactive. So, if you, by any chance, have interesting and innovative ideas considering the concept, perspective or design of this site -- send them, and we'll work on it.
