I am petitioning to get 100% of my tuition back from a class that I dropped on the first day of school. Maybe it's always been this way, but ever since I started UO many years back, I could swear that it was set up so that you could go to your first class in the first week of the term, and if you decided, hell no I'm not taking this, you could drop and get a full tuition reimbursement.

This term of Winter 10, the last day you could drop and still get all your money back was the Sunday before the first week of school. Because I dropped the first day of school, I get all but 10% back, which, for a 4-credit class, amounts to over $120.

The thing that pisses me off the most though is that I actually did try to drop the class before the deadline, but I needed some advice from academic advising before doing so. On Dec. 31st I tried calling the office and nobody picked up, even though I tried calling for an hour and a half. I get that New Years Day is a federal holiday and that nobody would have been in then, but New Years Eve day? Come on! People are taking that off too now? Do you really need more than the time between 5pm -oh, wait, the office of academic advising closes regularly at 4:30 instead of 5 as it is- and midnight to get ready to party?

Anyway, I'm just wondering can any seasoned UO goers tell me, has it always been this way? Where you can't even attend the first class without financial penalty, and where the campus offices shut down on New Years Eve day? I honestly thought that you could go to your class, and if you realized that it was going to be too easy, too hard, or too stupid, you could get out of it easy-like. Please tell me if I'm in the wrong- I won't be happy, but I guess I'd just have to deal.

Or if you can't answer, respond with your annoying UO red tape horror story or catch-22.

Looking for a cheap place to live that allows dogs
I am getting ready to move to the area and have 2.5 big dogs. Does anyone have any leads on cheap place to live that will tolerate 225lbs of dog?

I was thinking of trying to find a trailer to rent, does anyone know of one vaguely near campus?

So this is my first time failing a class (or more)...
This is my fourth year enrolled at UO and I decided to take some classes in fields that I've been out of touch with for a while - math & science. Sad to say that as the the term has progressed I've gone from getting it, to barely holding on, and finally I've come to terms with the inevitable truth - I will fail a class for the first time in my life.

Humiliated, I bring questions if anyone would care to answer (or to point me in the direction of people to talk to):

1) I'm enrolled in 12 credits; I'm definitely failing 4 of them, what happens if I fail 8? All 12? I am currently receiving a large portion of my aid federally.

2) Penalties, pointers, tips? Anything, really? I'm really having that nightmare "Term From Hell" and I'm scared as to how it will impact my college career :(

open posting
Can anyone let me know of open posting bulletin board locations on campus? I already know of the AAA upstairs coffee shop, but where else?

Scooter parking on campus
Is it worth it to get a parking permit to park my scooter on campus, or are free wedge spaces readily available during the school year?

Does anyone know when 2010 graduation will be? I've heard June 5, 12, and 13 and have seen both June 5 and June 13 listed on the website. Today I heard that they've changed the date again but I can't find any information on the UO website.

Anyone know any good shoe repair shops/cobblers in Eugene or Portland?
I just got some knee-high leather boots that I LOVE but I have really skinny calves and they are a bit too big in the calf area... can anyone recommend a good shoe repair shop/cobbler who could repair the calf-area to be skinnier? I really don't want to send them back. Please let me know, thanks! If you know anyone good in Portland, that works too!
