Availability of Professors' Old Exams.  Many professors make their old exams available for students to review.  Exams dating from 1992 and before are bound in volumes available in the 10th floor reading room in the Library.  Exams after 1992 were scanned into the online eLOISe system, which is temporarily unavailable due to the recent network conversion.  While the eLOISe system is down, copies of post-1992 exams are available in the Document Center on the 9th floor of the Library.

Joke of the Week.  A 92-year-old man and his 90-year-old wife go to their lawyer's office. The lawyer is astounded when they tell him they want to get a divorce. "But you've been married for 70 years! What in the world could make you want a divorce at this stage in your lives?"  "Well," says the wife, "we've been thinking about this for years, but wanted to wait until the children were dead."
