Summer Break
Staying in Florida? There's lots to do!

Next weekend, Saturday, June 23rd,
marks the beginning of our Summer

If you do not yet have any plans for
Summer Break, we have some
suggestions for you! Within an easy
day's drive from Gainesville, you will
find Atlanta at one end and Miami at
the other, with Savannah,
Jacksonville, Cedar Key, Orlando,
Tampa/St. Petersburg, and many
other interesting places in between.
There are a number of good Internet
resources to help you locate last-
minute hotel and flight reservations,
notably Travelocity, Expedia, and
Orbitz, found at
http://www.expedia.com/, and
http://www.orbitz.com/. And, if you
really want good bargains and are
feeling adventurous, then you can try
out Priceline bidding at
http:/ /www.priceline.com/. If you're
planning on renting a car, then be
sure to call all of the companies in
town to check on the available rates.

If you would like advice on travel,
especially if you're going to Orlando
or staying here in the Southeast, then
please feel free to ask me about it
anytime. You may stop by my office

(Room 310) or e-mail me at
toddy33(aufl.edu and I'll get back to
you as quickly as possible!

If you are among those staying in
Gainesville, there are lots of things to
do, too! If you like museums, there
are the Har Museum of Art and the
Florida Museum of Natural History,
both located on the southwest side of
campus. Each of these provides a
nice afternoon of cultural enjoyment.
If you like nature, check out the
Devil's Millhopper State Geological
Site and Kanapaha Botanical
Gardens. And if you like bicycling,
there is the Gainesville-Hawthorne
Rail Trail -- 15 miles of paved cycling
trail that winds through Paynes Prairie
and beyond. Also, you can try the
Depot Avenue/Waldo Road trail

Wherever you go and whatever you
choose to do, be careful and have a
great time!

Folks, we've been working with the
TRiP Office, and the Busch Gardens
Trip will be moved to next week,
Saturday, June 23rd. We do realize

that this could be a problem for some
students because it is the first
Saturday of summer break. So, if a
you have a ticket from last time, and
you will not be able to make it this
time, you CAN get a refund, or sell
your van ticket to another student.
However, any new students who join
the Busch Gardens trip on the 23rd
MUST give the trip office their
insurance information.

We have changed the time and days
of the new Grammar Lab. It will now
be offered from 3:30 to 4:30 on
Monday and Wednesdays in Room
313. Check it out!

> Summer Break and I-20s
Summer break is only a week and a
half weeks away! If you plan to leave
the US at allduring the break-even
on a cruise or a day trip to Canada or
Mexico-please remember to come
to the office to have your 1-20 signed
so that you won't have trouble
getting back into the country!

Highlights I

on Wednesday, July 4th, there will
be no classes and the ELI Main
Office will be closed for the
Independence Day Holiday.
Please remember that Monday
and Tuesday, July 2nd and 3rd are
regular days of class and that
missing them will count as

It's going to be quite a while, folks,
until we have another weekend trip.
Next weekend, since it's right before
ELI Midterms, there will be no trip,
and then we have summer break!
Our next scheduled activity after that
is Fanfares and Fireworks,
Gainesville's Independence Day
celebration. Also, we will be holding
our Midterm Picnic (which is also

our Welcome Picnic for the B-Term
students) on Saturday, July 7th.
Details about both of these trips will
be on the Activities Board and in next
week's Weekly.

The following are ELI Birthdays for
the week ofJune 15-21:

June 17: Saleh Al Thyab
June 21: Florelena Ardila

June 19: Emily Kirby

Happy Birthday, one and all!

No manners! Folks, instead of
running old columns this week, I
thought I'd just let you know that I
really need some questions from you

Whenever evil befalls us, we ought to
ask ourselves, after the first suffering,
how we can turn it into good. So shall
we take occasion, from one bitter
root, to raise perhaps many flowers.
