first of all... is this thing on?

hellooo?

lol, just seeing if anyone's still here on this community.

okay, so. i'm wondering if anyone here is taking or did take an intro accounting class? (did anyone else hate it, too? jk) i took it last spring and i've been thinking that i ought to share with other accounting/business students (or non-majors who are just taking an intro accounting or finance class for some requirement or other) something that really helped me out with the class. it's an online tutorial/refresher course for basic financial accounting knowledge: <a href="https://www.gleim.com/accounting/fame?io>Gleim financial accounting made easy.</a> the course does cost money if you're going to buy the whole thing, but the first study unit is free to try. i just gave the first unit a try and it seemed like a really worthwhile thing, so i ended up buying it (well, okay--poor college student, so my mom got it ;) )

anyway, if anyone tries that and likes it, that would be cool. i'd feel good about sharing something with the rest of the world, lol.

xoxo,
eli

A friend of mine needs a place to live this year, and has just found out that he can't move into the place he was planning.

Is there anyone living in Deland in need of a roommate?

If you or anyone you know wants to live in St. Pete, FL for the summer, PLEASE let me know! I need to sublet my AWESOME (and pretty cheap) apartment for the summer! YAY!

 

It's a really big 2 bedroom, 1 bath, it's about 1 minute from he Skyway. It has a washer/dryer hookup in it, and we could leave our washer and dryer in it because we got new ones. Both bedrooms have ENORMOUS walk-in closets too, and we have a cute little balcony. The apartment complex has 4 big pools, tennis courts, beach volleyball courts, a fitness center, a community center, etc. It's pretty much like living in a resort. The rent is $716 (which is pretty good for the size, the amenities, and the fact that it's only a block from the water). The apartment complex requires that everyone has basic cable too, which is $36 and brings the total to $752. We really really like it here, but we just got a house. We have to move into the house May 20th, and our lease doesn't end until September. So, any or all of the months between the end of May, June, July, and August would be awesome!

 

 Let me know if you would like to come by to see the place, or have any questions! Pictures are behind the cut!

 

Thanks!

 

 

Autumn

Hey all,

To keep with our tradition, this community is to be run by current students at Stetson University. Well, I'm graduating in one week, so the search for a co-maintainer will begin shortly. I do believe pearlrose will be returning next year, so this is the only position needed to be filled.

If you are interested in co-maintaining this community, please leave a comment on this post. Thanks

Current Mood: relieved relieved

Events like this make us all too aware of how easily this could have happened on any college campus. I hope those of you with friends and family at VT have gotten in touch with them, and they are alright.

ur new EP/DVD is finished and being pressed as we speak!

THE LAUNCH PARTY!:::::
Where? - Poetry @ an Uncouth Hour, Nightlights, DeLand, FL
When? - April 19th at 8:00PM
Touchstone, Stetson's literary magazine, will also be released that night! Come out, hear some writings by your fellow Stetson students, give our album a listen, and see MPG perform LIVE!

WHAT'S IN THE PACKAGE?:::::
You will recieve both an enhanced CD (our music plus wallpapers, icons, ringtones, etc.) and a DVD in one package for only $5! We will have approx. 50 copies of the album available for sale at the event and are working on setting up a paypal account so that you may pay by credit card if you wish.

All proceeds go to MPG's travel fund, helping to alleviate the costs of performing at academic festivals all around the nation. Right now, students and professors are responsible for almost all of their own expenses, which can add up to hundreds of dollars. Help us travel and spread the word about new media art!

Hello All!
I wanted to pass this information along, because if you're like me, you didn't get the memo about the removal of the dumpsters and the switch to the trash compactor. I had actually e-mailed Dean Espinosa to see what was going on, and received the updated information from her assistant, as she is out of her office until the 12th.

In the fence is the compactor, and the code to open the door is 1-2-3. I've noticed a lot of trash backing up in the stairs, especially in the 2 bedroom apartments, and hoped that this would help get rid of that problem. If you know someone who doesn't have LJ and who isn't taking out the trash, just let them know what's going on. I know I felt terrible with my three bags of garbage, but quickly removed them as soon as I found out where to take them.

Thank you all for your help!

Hello!
I'm applying as a non-degree student (apparently admissions has no clue what to do with me) for this up-coming fall. I'll have had graduated from FSU with my bachelor's in exercise science- woo. So i'm just going to be taking Organic Chem 1 and 2 at Stetson and I was just wondering about the department and the difficulty of those classes. I've already taken a stab at Orgo 1 but i'm not happy with the grade and Stetson has a different way of setting up the credits for these classes. Basically, I'd just like to know what i'll be getting myself into. So anyone a science major?


PS I saw someone had made a comment in an earlier post dissing my alma mater. Not going to lie, it made me tear up inside. Large schools aren't for everyone and the only way to survive is to find that niche. Plus the dorms aren't that bad, I lived in them for 3 years. FSU is the bomb.com

Okay, I've tried to be as patient as possible about this, but enough is enough...


If you are not a resident of the 2 bedroom apartments, DO NOT PARK IN OUR LOT PLEASE!!!! There are exactly enough spots per people living in the building, and it gets VERY frustrating to come home after a rehearsal at night (or as I just experienced, getting home after taking a friend to the hospital) and not have a place to park your car. If you live in the 4 bedroom, there are plenty of parking spots closer to those buildings that those of us in the 2 bedroom leave alone for you.

Also, if you are a visitor, please park in the lot across the street from the 4 bedroom apartments.

I hate to sound stuck up about this, but seriously...there is no need for anyone not living in the 2 bedroom apartments to park in that lot.

Thanks.

Hello! My name is Angie :) and I'm a Junior in High School. I'm planning to attend Stetson once I graduate. Yes, I know it's a little early to already have a set Univeristy but I think this is it. I'm having a little trouble though maybe any of guys might be able to help? Well to start it off my grades are great and my GPA couldn't be better. I am however lacking a little on being involved in things you know like helping out in communties and such. What would be best to do in trying to stay involved? And ya'll had to take the SAT & ACT to get in with a good grade if I'm not mistaken. Just was it very hard? Thank you so much who will be willing to help! :)

he was more than just a resturant owner, his name was louis and he was wonderful. one of the nicest guys i've had the honor to meet.

i work at the Elusive Grape in dowtown and brickhouse is just across the way from us. Bill, my boss, was best friends with both the owners of brickhouse and louis. louis often came into the grape and brought food or just to talk with us. there is not one person that i have talked with that did not know louis and has not been affected by this loss

this senseless act of violence has truly broken apart a large piece of delands community. loius touched a large part of deland and a big part of that is the downtown area where many of us go to party. it is an outrage that 25,000 is the price of man's life.

sat night brickhouse closed in vigilance for louis, meanwhile halftimes, the skank ass bar that consistantly brings down drug-dealer, punk, wanna be thugs, and dumbasses into the downtown area was up and going. i think it was incredibly disrespectful for them to be open after thier establisment was the source of all this violence. i myself have had peroblems with the people that frequent thier establishment just taking out the garbage behind the shop so i can close. i hope that you will agree with me that half-times needs to be closed, the owners need to be kicked out, and it needs to be reopened as a more respectable bar.

downtown is dangerous enough without all the scum coming in to frequent the crap bar they call half-times

the stetson community makes up a large part of downtowns income its time we started to use our voices and express that violence and people like this will not be tolerated in our community.

Stray bullet goes off and kills Brickhouse restaurant owner, Louis Nout.

Read more about it here.

Downtown's not as safe as we'd hoped, guys. Please be careful.

So, I know we can all share the experience of being given questionable food at the commons. Well, my friends and I did a little experiment involving garlic bread from the commons...and a clay pidgeon (sorry, it was there and already defaced). My friend, of course, recorded it with his phone, so the video is on youtube now.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=facfScRJEtc

He was whacking the crap out of that bread, too. The commons really is trying to kill us.

And before someone kills ME, yes, I know it's not always that bad. It sure is funny, though!
