Subject: networking seminar I am doing a networking seminar for my students April 9th in the Student Center Ballroom @ noon and wanted to see if you or your students would be interested in attending. The idea is to get the students networking with professionals in their field of interest. I plan on having professionals from all sorts of career fields here from finance and business, technology, police, DEA, lawyers, communications, social services, accounting, education, among many others. I am giving my students the opportunity to seek out answers they may not be able to find elsewhere, in reagrds to interships, schooling and what it may be like actually working in the field. It will give the student the chance to talk to the person one on one and ask pertinent questions and see if they really choose to further their education in that line of work or seek another area of interest.

Burning an ISO image in Microsoft Windows.
ISO Recorder is a freeware tool which makes image writing available from the Windows desktop. Download and install ISO Recorder according to the instructions on their home page. You can write images in much the same way as under GNOME in Linux: browse to locate the file, right click on it, and choose `Copy image to CD'. This is the simplest available method for writing disc images under Windows.
Running an ISO image in Microsoft Windows.
MobaLiveCD allows you to test your LiveCD with a single click. After downloading the ISO image file of your favorite LiveCD, you just have to start it in MobaLiveCD and here you are, without the need to burn a CD-Rom or to reboot your computer.
We will be holding our first session on Sunday, October 10th. It will take place in south wing of the Computer Science Department. That is on the 3rd floor of Robinson Hall, the very last door on the corner of the building closest to ScienceHall and Savitz Hall.
The tutoring for Discrete Structures will take place from 12:00pm--1:00pm. The tutoring for Intro to Scientific Programming will take place from 1:00pm--2:00pm.
For those of you who have requested help in other CS classes, including IOOP, OOPDA, and Computer Organization, we recommend that you come to the open question period with your questions. The open question period will take place from 2:00pm - 6:00pm.
We are going to try to have the Registrar's Office preregister everybody into the CS Learning Community class (CRN 23105, CS 01.000 W 1050-1205).
Attendance is expected and will be taken.
To prepare for our first meeting, please answer the following three short online surveys.
Meetings are always on a Wednesday at 10:50am in Education 3114. I plan to have the computer science faculty talk about their interests and research. I also want to get some Rowan CS graduates to give you some advice. Perhaps I can get some of the upperclass majors to come tell you which professors to avoid, I mean, take. Another idea is for the students enrolled in our Masters program and our accelerated BS/MS program to tell you why they are doing it. Topics are subject to change.
