Stanford Men's Basketball vs. Arizona
Thursday, March 9th
10:30PM Eastern time (the printed version of the newsletter says 9:30PM, but 10:30 is correct)

Both Arizona and Stanford lost close games this past week. Arizona beat Stanford earlier this year at Stanford. A Stanford victory on Thursday would guarantee Stanford a #1 seed in the West Regionals. The game is available on Home Team Sports, which is carried by several local cable systems. Stanford fans will also gather at the Crystal City Sports Pub, 529 South 23rd Street, Arlington. Tom Hwang has agreed to get there early and organize things.

Directions from DC: Come over 14th Street Bridge, and come south on Route 1.  Make a right at 23rd (gas station on corner) before turnoff to National Airport. The sports bar is in the second block on your right. Metro: Exit Crystal City Metro (18th street) and walk under underpass to Eads, and left to 23rd, and right on 23rd.

On Saturday, Stanford plays Arizona State at 2PM Eastern --TV coverage is Fox Sports Bay Area.

Membership Renewal and the Annual Membership Directory

The response to Monday's email providing each renewed member with their membership information to verify has been a huge success (???) with approximately 200 email responses in the first 24 hours providing various changes. If you a renewed member and have changes that you have not yet submitted, please submit the changes only, rather than all of your information. It makes data entry much easier.

Non-renewed members were provided the same information last week by email.  Those non-renewed members who receive their newletter by mail will receive a membership form in the mail in a day or two. Non-renewed members must mail, not email, changes and their membership fee by March 15th. (Data entry is much easier if the check and the membership information arrive at the same time and if checks are not stapled to the membership form.) The directory will be mailed in mid-April.

New STEPS Job Bank for Young Alumni

The Stanford Exchange for Public Service (STEPS) is starting a job bank of available positions in the D.C. area suitable for graduating seniors and young alumni seeking public service jobs (government, non-profit, or private
sector). If you or your employer are interested in having Stanford graduating seniors and young alumni apply for jobs or internships at your office or company, please e-mail a job description to Charles Hokanson '93, MA '93, at charles_hokanson@stanfordalumni.org or mail a hard copy to Charles at 3000 Spout Run Parkway #C-610, Arlington, VA 22201. For more information about STEPS or if you have questions about the STEPS Job Bank, please contact Charles at (703) 351-1091.

Stanford GALA in DC

A Stanford Gay and Lesbian Alumni Group is now taking shape in DC for area alumni. The group started this fall and has quickly established a large membership. Stanford DC GALA intends to be a helpful resource for both alumni and students in DC. Plans for the group include: social events, events with GALA groups from other schools, job networking opportunities, and funding a summer internship in DC for a student working in gay and lesbian rights. If you are interested in joining or learning more about the group, please contact Jason Husgen AB '97, j.husgen@stanfordalumni.org

February 14, 2000

Dear Stanford Alumni and Friends,

Once again we would like to request your help in providing free or low-cost housing to Stanford students this summer.

This year, we expect over one hundred Stanford students to participate in public service internships in DC. Most internships are unpaid, so it can be difficult for students to finance the cost of a summer in the city. That's
why we need your help. In the past, some Stanford alumni have provided students with room and/or board in exchange for low rent or services such as baby-sitting, house-sitting, or yard work. This generosity has allowed many Stanford students to intern affordably in DC, inspiring them to pursue careers in public service.

Stanford in Government would like to include you in our 2000 DC summer program. As a small measure of our gratitude and interest in promoting excellent alumni/student relations, we will hold at least one alumni/student
mixer at the Stanford in Washington House on Connecticut Avenue. We welcome any interest to help plan this event.

If you are willing to house a student for any part of the summer, please complete the attached survey and return it at your earliest convenience. Housing is generally most difficult for students to find in mid-June (before
other housing may be available) and from mid-August through September (when they must vacate the Stanford in Washington house or apartments they rent).  Your completed survey will be placed in a binder in the SIG office and it is the student's responsibility to contact you. If an arrangement is made with a student, your survey will be removed from the binder.

Thank you very much for your continued support. None of SIG's work would be possible without your generosity. Please contact me at (650) 497-6954 with any questions about the survey or the summer housing program.
