    I spent a bit too much time grumbling about the time tables, so they made me student rep, so I wouldnt have so much free time.



    Student reps listen to the other students, gather info about what they need and dont need, and share this with the college management so it can be addressed.



    This sharing happens over piles of pizza, so Ive been to all the meetings.



    Dad wanted the mud at each end of the concrete dug down 3 inches below the concrete.

    Good on you. My daughter was student rep when she was at Uni, it is a good thing to do.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    A college degree means you had the ability to put up with loads of BS. Sometimes not much more.

    Well, yes, but that can be important. If you are fortunate a degree will provide the training to get launched on a career. If not, then the undergrad degree is, at a minimum, the entry ticket to a graduate or professional degree that will open doors of opportunity. Either way, a sound investment of one's time, attention, and sometimes tolerance of BS....
    I also agree with Peerie Maa--being a student rep is a good thing to do. Glad to hear things are going well, Professor Little.

    The Prof is on an Engineering syllabus. Believe me, that is fact based definitely not BS.

    I just spent the better part of a week reading this entire thread. After lurking for over a year I finally registered.

    I hope the Ideas are still having adventures, wherever they are.

    Mine as well. The first thread I read here and I lurked on it for quite a while too. An inspiration in all respects.

    Then he can come back. After exams are done.

    I was wondering what happened myself. I hope everything is well. This thread has been the best. It was like an ongoing tv series. It's great. I look forward to its continuation.

    Pete Culler's wheelbarrow skiff works like a Chinese wheelbarrow. No heavy lifting.
