Parking on the Quad
-------------------------------------
Due to the possibility of a Nor'easter this weekend, B&G is asking all
residents to refrain from parking on the Quad even during the day if
you see that the conditions will call for plowing. It will make the
snow removal team's job a lot easier if they don't have to dodge cars
while trying to clear the road.

Thank you for your cooperation, and let's hope it's not '78 all over
again.

Also, as a reminder, after the storm, cars are to be moved to cleared
lots.

BOSTON THEOLOGICAL INSTITUTE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM APPLICATIONS ARE BEING
ACCEPTED NOW FOR SPRING 2006
--------------------------------------
Dear Students:

Are you seeking new, interdisciplinary, and ecumenical approaches to
your theological studies? Have you always wanted to explore courses in
other BTI schools? Would an additional academic credential serve you
well in your vocational goals?

If the answer is yes, or even maybe, do explore the Boston Theological
Institute's dynamic Certificate Programs in International Mission and
Ecumenism (IME), Science and Religion (with several emphases possible),
and Youth and Young Adult Ministry Studies (YYAMS). Students can often
complete these certificates as part of their Masters or Doctoral
studies. Applications for Certificates awarded in Spring 2006 are
being accepted now.

For more information and to download materials, do visit:
http://www.bostontheological.org/academic/certificates.htm.

Hardcopies are available in the BTI office in Sturtevant Hall at
Andover Newton.

For Andover Newton, the Science Certificate advisor is Professor Mark
Heim, the IME Certificate advisor is Prof. Daniel Jeyaraj, and the
YYAMS advisor is Professor Bob Pazmino.

Alex Kern serves as Coordinator of the YYAMS certificate program, as
well. Do contact these advisors, and apply soon.
