Subject: [apileaders] TONIGHT 6 pm--Student Focus Group on Old Union renovation

An invitation from Student Affairs and Capital Planning

Later this year, Old Union will be renovated and will become a center for student organizations, religious life, and a cafe_and living room (as well as the current community centers). ASSU and Student Activities will move to Old Union, resulting in a opportunity to revitalize Tresidder.

Were interested in your thoughts about what would make Tresidder a campus destination for students and what would make the combined Tresidder/Old Union/White Plaza the destination.

The study is a joint planning effort by Student Affairs (led by Interim Dean of Student Affairs Greg Boardman) and Capital Planning (led by Margaret Dyer-Chamberlain).

Next week, we will hold focus groups with students and staff about Tresidder. We would very much appreciate it if you could attend:

Date: October 26
Time: 6 pm - 7:30pm
Location: Tresidder, Dean of Student Affairs Conference Room


Please RSVP by 5:00pm, Oct. 24, to Anita Black (; )

Many thanks for your time and help!

Citadel Investment Group, Oct 26 & 27

Citadel Investment Group, L.L.C will be coming to Stanford for a job lunch on Wednesday, October 26, 2005 and company information session on Thursday, October 27, 2005. Please attend our information session to learn more about the opportunities available at Citadel. We are looking for candidates with strong software development experience and an interest in finance to join our Financial Technology Associates Program (FTAP) and our Software Development Internship Program.

Since its founding in 1990, Citadel has grown into one of the world’s most sophisticated alternative investment institutions. Our team of more than one thousand professionals is located in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, London, Tokyo and Hong Kong. We allocate our investment capital across a highly diversified set of proprietary investment strategies in all major asset classes. To help give us a competitive edge in the markets, Citadel invests significantly in technology. In fact, half of our organization consists of Information Technology professionals.

Since 1998, we have generated annualized rates of return of more than 20%. Our success has catapulted our investment capital from approximately $1 billion in 1998 to over $12 billion today. During this time, we have created over $5 billion of trading profits. The strength of our funds is further demonstrated by our S&P and Fitch investment grade ratings – unmatched by any of its peers.

Citadel is building its organization for the long term, by attracting and retaining individuals from around the world with tremendous intellectual curiosity, innovative ideas and a relentless commitment to execution. Each day we bring together enormous amounts of intellectual capital from the fields of meteorology, medicine, research, trading and technology, all with the goal of solving problems.

We constantly seek new ways to expand our core businesses and to create new business lines. Continued success requires the willingness to continuously build and rebuild our intellectual capital. We move quickly, decisively and with a major commitment of talent and capital. I have attached the Wall Street & Technology article written about Citadel's CIO, Tom Miglis. The article gives insight into how Citadel pairs technology and finance and what technology means to our business.

Katrina Relief Info:

The Krispy Kreme Eating Contest is next tuesday at Lag Dining at 8:30 PM.It is sponsored by Mosaic, which is made up of four different student groups (Cornerstone, Campus Crusade, Table Talk, and Cardinal Life).

All funds raised will go directly to Habitat for Humanity Katrina Relief, and all funds will be matched two for one by outside donors.This means if you give $100, $300 will go to Habitat. Suggested teams are of three people with suggested donation of $30 per team if self-funded, and $60 per team if dorm-funded. However, any donation will do, and if you care to enter a two or one-person team, you are more than welcome!

Bring your friends!Even if they don't want to participate, they are more than welcome to join the festivities and are encouraged to cheer! We are counting on YOU to recruit teams!We suggest recruiting from your dorm/house, your friends, your clubs, your sports teams, and your classmates. Make sure to note for those who aren't super into donuts that its ok if you don't eat a million donuts (or any at all if you're really don't like donuts but want to help!).The main point is to collect donations and raise money for the victims.

Email your list of teams to by Sunday at 8 PM with a list of all teams recruited and the emails of the members. You will bring the money raised to the event on Tuesday.Email that same address for questions

Free Food Alert Blog

Following in the footsteps of our friendly neighbor, the freefoods list blog, Free Food Alert now has a blog at

All of the emails sent through this list will now also be reflected there, so that even people who don't want emails every day have the option oflooking online for free food announcements when they feel like it.

Hopefully this will meet the needs of all of our constituents, from the free-food connoisseur who humorously warns us against the evils of hydrogynated oils to the protectors of limited-supplies-of-free-food, to the basic student who really is here to learn about legitimate free food (and events) on campus.

Welcome to free-food-alert

To subscribe to Stanford's Free Food Alert mailing list, send an email to with the following text in the message:

subscribe free-food-alert

This is an abridged version of what you can expect as an email to you when you subscribe:


Welcome to the Free-Food-Alert list!

This mailing list was created to serve a simple but very important purpose: to help hungry
Stanford students find free food on campus. We have an impressive 280+ members on this mailing list, a short article in Stanford Magazine, and a plug in the Stanford Daily. As a member of the community you are encouraged to forward to the list any announcements about events that involve free food. (Such events may include talks, company presentations, seminars, etc.) Remember that one person's leftovers is another person's lunch and dinner.

As a service to this community of free food seekers, you are encouraged to follow this template:

---------Suggested template --------------

[Location]:[Short Description of Food]

-Location and event (if any),
-Description of Food,
-Number of servings (if known),
-Time you last saw the food,
-Length of time it will be available (if known),
-Estimate on age of the food...
-Tips and Notes (i.e. �"Bring Tupperware containers to carry it away!" or "Bring your Stanford ID if you want to make it past the guards!")

---------End suggested template ------------

As a courtesy to others on this list, if you discover (or are part the reason) that the announced free food is no longer available, please let the rest of the list know so we can put thedeal to rest.

Without each other, you and I would starve! (Or at least we would have to resort to not-so-free-food. And I would rather starve.)

Long live Free Food!

If you have any questions, please send them to

Yay, we have a blog now

Free-food-alert finally has a blog. All emails to the list will be automatically posted here also. This also gives people the option of unsubscribing to the list without missing out on free food when they have the time to check this blog. Woohoo!
