The R.A.P. Line is Open

You have an exam coming up, and you're nervous-not just a little nervous, but I-never-bought-books-for-this-class-and-I-have-to-read-18-chapters-this-week-nervous. Maybe it isn't an exam. Maybe you have a research paper due, yet the only research you've been doing is on the types of coffee at XandO or the outfits people wore at your last semiformal. How about if you're lonely or angry, and just want to talk about or vent your feelings?

We're here for you.

We're the Reach-A-Peer Helpline, open 7 nights a week 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Call 573-2RAP, or write us at www.upenn. edu/rap-online.

Moving over the Holiday Break

The Office of Regulatory Affairs will be moving during the Christmas holiday week from Suite 300 in the Mellon Bank Building to 3508 Market Street, Suite 230. Business hours will resume at 9 a.m. on January 4, 1999, at the new location. We ask for your patience and understanding while we try to settle in quickly.

--Ruth Clark, Director, Office of Regulatory Affairs

Correction: In SEC Actions last week, the second sentence under "2. Past Chair's Report on Academic Planning and Budget Commitee..." should have said that at that committee's last meeting, reports were given by the directors of the Annenberg Center and of the new Endowment Office-not that reports were given on the search for those directors.
