Fire Drill. We would like to thank students, faculty, and staff for their cooperation with the recent fire drill. Although we were generally pleased with how the drill went, we would like to pass along a few reminders:

*Please use the nearest staircase to exit the building -- do not use the elevators.

*Please do not take time to gather up your belongings -- your safety is more important than your possessions. If you feel that you must take any valuables with you, please "grab and go" -- do not waste precious seconds or minutes powering down your laptop computer or packing up your belongings. This is where we had the biggest problem this year. Keep in mind that your delay in leaving also delays (and thus endangers, in the event of a real emergency) the staff members assigned to clear that floor.

*Once you exit the building, please move eastward down the sidewalk (toward the lake) so that you will be out of harm's way if any windows shatter. For your safety, please do not cross the street or step into traffic.

Counseling Services for Downtown Campus. The IIT Counseling Center is now providing services here at the Downtown Campus on Thursdays, 2:00-5:00 pm, in Rm. 447. Please see the Student Services section of the Record for details.

Trial Team Success. Congratulations to the Chicago-Kent Trial Team for making it to the semi-finals in the Buffalo Niagra Invitational Mock Trial Competition, the largest invitational Trial Advocacy competition in the nation. The team of Andrew Cherkasky, Anthony Lucafo, Ida Nassar, and Susan Song (three of whom were competing for the first time) was one of the "final four" out of a total of 35 teams from 20 schools. They defeated four teams without losing a single judge's vote on their way to the semi-finals, where they fell to Temple in a 3-2 decision. Congratulations also to the team coaches: Judge David Erickson, Margaret Firnstein, and Nicholas Caputo.

Joke of the week. There once was a mendicant holy man who walked barefoot most of the time, which gave him large callouses on his feet. He also ate very sparingly, which made him frail, and his odd diet gave him bad breath. In other words, he was a super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis!
