NO SMOKING!
The ELI has received repeated complaints about ELI students
smoking in the outdoor courtyard and hallway areas, especially
in front of the Florida Room (the room with the vending
machines). UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU
SMOKE IN THE OUTDOOR COURTYARDS OF NORMAN
HALL. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU
SMOKE IN FRONT OF THE FLORIDA ROOM OR UNDER
THE BIG TREE. Not only does ignoring the no-smoking
policy provide U.S. citizens with a negative example of
international students and students from your country; but if
students are not able to follow the State of Florida no-smoking
policy in the Norman Hall area, the Fire Marshall may be
notified and students may begin to receive large fines.

Reminder: ELI Thanksgiving Potluck
This Friday, November 16th at 6pm (note: the time has been
changed). Please sign up to bring a dish from your country on
the Activities Board. Family and friends are welcome but please
sign them up.

Deadline for 1-20's: Remember November 20th is the last day
for signing 1-20 forms if leaving the U.S. during Fall 2006

November 21st in front of Tigert Hall at 11:30am. Your

If you have a question about U.S. manners and culture, please
email our ELI Weekly editor, Jen Ramos, at
jenmlej@hotmail.com, or put questions in her mailbox (marked
Ramos in the ELI Main Office).

Q: In what situations are bribes acceptable in the U.S.?

A: Bribing is considered unacceptable in just about every
situation and institution. Please never try to bribe a police officer
under any circumstances here as the consequences will be very
severe for you legally. Likewise, you should never offer any
immigration or any other public official a bribe. In the private
sector, such as banking, retail, medicine, etc., bribes are not
looked upon well and will most likely be rejected with much
embarrassment to you. I'm not saying bribery never happens here,
but it is not part of the "regular procedure" of daily living and can
cause lots of trouble. My advice is never offer nor accept any
"special deal."


Q: What is the difference between all the different types of
Christianity?

According to some sources, there are 34,000 separate
denominations of Christianity! Often what separates them in
modern times are their positions on such topics as: abortion,
homosexuality, physician assisted suicide, therapeutic cloning,
disciplining children, divorce, etc. They have very different
beliefs on historical Christian teachings, such as the virgin birth,
the atonement, the resurrection, Heaven, Hell, salvation, Satan,
demons, etc.

A non-ELI sponsored activity for charity:
Cropwalk:
When: December 3rd, Sunday afternoon at 3pm.
What: Walk with friends and family to alleviate hunger and
poverty in the world.
Required: Ajar of peanutbutter for each walker to donate to the
Gainesville food bank. You may collect money for donations, but
no minimum is required. Wear comfortable shoes!
Who: Contact Lia Brenneman if you are interested in becoming a
walker!
