Attached to this issue of Currents are the 2002-03, 2003-04 and 2004-05
calendars. The 2002-03 calendar has been slightly revised by deleting
the reference to the end of summer term classes. In the future, calendars
will only indicate the end of the May and the summer sessions rather than
include the last day of classes in these terms. The 2003-04 should be
considered final. The 2004-05 calendar is still tentative; your comments
and suggestions are welcome, please direct these to Steve Hedman at 726-8839
