So far our questions are:
1. What majors are offered the fewest choices?
2. What were the names of the people involved in the Nantucket Project center?
3. How many available spaces were most recently offered in each of the current project centers?
4. Relatively, how many applicants most recently applied to each of the current project centers?
5. How many students were deferred? Accepted?
in case you are interested, see Prof Koehler directly

This is one for the true afficionados:
We have about three old, 1980s vintage Tektronix Oscilloscopes that we are clearing out. They appear to be in good condition, and even have carts.

I thought this might be a useful link to have...here is the train schedule for the New Mexico Railrunner. Saturday Schedule, Weekday Schedule, Fares, and last but not least, the weekday bus and Saturday bus from the airport to the train station.
I also tried embedding the calendar on the wiki with no luck, so perhaps someone a little bit more tech savvy than I am would be able to do that. I'll look into it further at a later date.
