Student Bar Association News
Graduating students, the following professors received the most votes on our TWEN poll last week:
1. Prof. Abramson
2. Prof. Leibson
3. Prof. Powell
4. Prof. Milligan
5. Profs. Laura Rothstein & Giesel (tie)
Starting today on TWEN, you will be able to vote for the three professors out of this group that will hood you at graduation. If you participated in the voting last week, then you do not have to add the "Hooding Professors" course again. Just follow the same steps to vote that you followed last week. If you did not add the course last week and would like to participate in the voting, then go to TWEN and add the course "Hooding Professors." After that, click on customized polling, which will be located on the left side of the screen. From there you can select three professors. Then click "finish poll" which is on the top right of the screen. Voting will end at 5 p.m. Friday, April 22. If you have any further questions, please contact Daniel Cameron (email@example.com).
Students, our annual sports tickets lottery will take place next week. This year the law school received 62 combination (football and basketball) season tickets and 19 football only season tickets. In preparation of the lottery, a sign-up sheet will be placed on the SBA office door (Rm. 245) at 12 p.m. today. There will be two columns. Under one column you will be able to sign up for combination season tickets and under the other column you will be able to sign up for football only season tickets. Please sign up either for football only or combination tickets, not both. By your name please state whether you want one or two sets of tickets for you and a guest. You are allowed to sign up for two sets of combination season tickets (you and one guest), meaning that if you are selected in the lottery to receive tickets then you and your guest’s tickets count as two against the 62 (therefore 60 will be left). The same applies for football only tickets.
The sign-up sheet will stay up until 5 p.m. Friday, April 15 and the lottery will take place this weekend. The results will be posted by 12 p.m. on Monday, April 25. On Tuesday, April 26 ticket vouchers will be available in the SBA office for students that are selected in the lottery. Those vouchers allow you to go pick up your tickets at the student ticket office in the Student Activities Center (SAC) and they will be available for pickup until April 29. The cost of the combination tickets is $210 and the football only season tickets is $72 and you will not be required to pay until you present your voucher at the ticket office. If selected, more information will be given to you when you pick your vouchers up from the SBA office. If you have any questions or want me to place your name on the sign-up sheet, please feel free to send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
It's time to choose who you want to hood you at the graduation ceremony. To do this, add the course "Hooding Professors" on TWEN. Once you've added the course, click on "customized polling" which will be located on the left side of the screen. From there you can select three professors. Then click "finish poll" which is on the top right of the screen. The poll will stay open until 5 pm Friday, April 15. The five professors with the highest vote totals will then be voted on next week and three will be selected from that group to do the hooding.
