If you are in the residence halls don't do it. All traffic is monitored by IT and you will be caught. VPNs won't work because you are already part of one.
A vpn like BTGuard might work on university wireless, but it's too slow to really do any good.
If the university gets any notices from rights holders they have no qualms handing your name over to them so they don't get sued.
You could look into a pet cooling bed like this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07SR9VQQK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_WNSHE7SXKJ6W8CNYPZ3Z or something similar. He may also appreciate some frozen treats like tuna juice ice cubes. If it gets super hot and he is having trouble you can also get a washcloth wet with cold water and wring it out REALLY WELL before placing it on him. Good luck!
Scroll down to the humidity section, assuming that's what makes the biggest difference for you.
My hair takes the most direct route to the floor, leaving me unable to speak to straightening specifically. I definitely had some staticy, poofy hair days during the winter. They were rare enough to be remarkable, if that makes you feel any better.
That said, as a Freshman, you'll be in a residence hall. That can make daily beauty rituals a pain. You can devote some of your limit, precious, and shared living space to your regimen. Alternately, you can make your process portable and fight for mirror space, ledge space, and outlets in the shared bathroom. I encourage you strongly to think about what you can remove from your daily rituals, in terms of steps & stuff.
Good luck and enjoy your time at Wazzu!
I used a ti-84 plus through undergrad and that was fine.
If you like being able to calculate on your phone or computer, you can also try Wabbitemu http://wabbitemu.org/ which emulates a graphing calculator and is free.
And also on the topic of free speech, how do you not find stuff like this offensive?
Edit: NSFW probably.
I liked the guy but his accent was extremely thick when I took algorithms with him. I got the feeling that he had a clear picture in his brain but couldn't communicate very well, accent aside.
Really can't recommend taking his course when you can take the 2-part Stanford algorithms course online for free: https://www.coursera.org/course/algo
Its actually pretty interesting! We're learning about PACs and 527's, all that fun stuff. PM me your email, and I'll shoot you my notes!
EDIT: Also, there is homework! He put an article on Angel, we have to read the first 9 pages, then answer and post about 3 questions he will put on later tonight. They are due Monday by 11:59pm

So I assume you are high school yes ? I don't know much about WWU but I can tell you something about UW.
UW ranking is a lot higher compare to WSU.
So you might ask "If it's a better school, I should apply it there right ?" Well not exactly, here are few things. Once you graduated from WSU or UW, the degrees is basically gonna be the same, as long as you have a degree, you are good to go. Having a degree from UW doesn't not necessary give you more advantage over a degree from WSU. It might look more impressive, but i can guarantee that If you have a good gpa, internships, projects to show for, you could easily find a job you want.
Now here is the bad thing about UW
It's biggest advantage is also it's biggest disadvantage. UW is a world renowned university and located in a big city. People all around the world would want to go there. So it is a lot more competitive than WSU since it will be you vs people from all over the world. It is harder to get accepted into their program compare to WSU. I know a guy who went to UW for engineering. His GPA was 3.6(quite high for engineering major) but UW wouldn't accepted him into their engineering program and told him to go for "black history major". He later transfer to WSU and graduate with a degree. Going to UW is not as important as getting out the school with a degree.
Sure UW has more funded, you have more opportunity to create connection, but in the end, going to wsu would be just fine. WSU has some really good professor like Andy (http://www.ratemyprofessors.com/ShowRatings.jsp?tid=591719) and you could build your own connection, just join clubs, go to career fairs.
Now that I'm not saying you are not smart enough for UW. Maybe you could exceed and graduate from UW with 4.0 GPA. But for me a normal guy, UW has too much risk of falling out compare to WSU while the outcome in the end is not that much different
Roommates and I took our dog to Lybecker park almost everyday, especially in summer cause its usually empty. Big field for them to run in, the sides and north part of the park are basically fenced but to the south its wide open so if he/she likes to run away from you it is not the best. but the basketball court is fenced in so we would play ball and have our pup run around when it was our turn to play :)
There are rumors going around the CptS and ROTC students that someone hacked into ResNet and that is what is causing issues. Also browse carefully and check if your account has been breached here.
Interesting. I don't personally have any problem with him at all, as I have never taken a class from him. A number of people have told me to avoid his class and http://www.ratemyprofessors.com/ShowRatings.jsp?tid=911983 scores him super low, so I had no reason to disbelieve them. Thanks for providing a different opinion, and I would encourage you to help the guy out on ratemyprofessors.com so that future students will know.
Here is the FB event and I think putting something up in the CUB would be awesome but I don't know what that would take.
Maybe something viral, maybe a promo video, I could photoshop an image or logo or something, selling T-shirts (maybe more for WSU-Con), but yeah, just a few ideas.
Edit: Where is the WWL going to happen? It doesn't say on the site.
Edit 2: Is it Mac friendly? (for example I have Steam and TF2 on my laptop)
I suggest a double window fan something like this can go in and out, fits in most windows, nice to have rather than just a box fan.
I also highly suggest bed risers if the beds there these days can use them. Having storage space under the bed with plastic bins is super helpful.
Good laptop, obviously the single most important thing for him. (hopefully already has)
A few power strips/surge protectors
I got into the habit of wearing earplugs to sleep back when I lived in Pullman. I didn't live in an apartment, but lived in a house around Valhalla/girls soccer field area. It takes some getting used to and definitely need the right brand for comfort (some just hurt). I haven't lived in Pullman in a couple of years and I still wear them to this day because it has honestly vastly improved my quality of sleep.
Unfortunately, there isn't a lot you can to stop inconsiderate upstairs neighbors from making loud stomping/dropping sounds because you can't really call cops/mgmt about that kind of stuff. If white noise such as a fan isn't enough, I definitely suggest giving the earplugs a shot.
Snow tires for your feet are a good idea too, if you hate slipping on ice get some yaktrax, just take them off before you go inside to a smooth floor or you'll slip even worse.
Yaktrax are your friend for walking (https://www.amazon.com/Yaktrax-Traction-Cleats-Walking-Small/dp/B001CZJIPA/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=boot+ice+walking&qid=1638830427&sr=8-3) but don't walk up the tile/linoleum areas inside and ruin them, pop them off when you enter a building.
A good snow brush/scraper will pay for itself many times over with your car.
> If you travel this regularly, get studded tires
If you're going to rock All-Seasons in a decent AWD/4WD vehicle at least make sure the tires are siped, it'll have a huge boost over non-siped tires.
If you are interested in boxing, I need to show campus rec that there is interest. If you think you might want to join a boxing club fill out this form https://forms.office.com/r/B7kbF29kZP
Cerruti. Cerruti Cerruti Cerruti.
Please take him. He's phenomenal. He really cares about your performance and your questions. He gives fantastic pre-exam study sessions. He puts out excellent notes online which are high quality and easy to understand. His tests are very fair and cover what was covered in class. His notes are very easy to read and to follow along with. He puts out sample midterms which fairly closely resemble what will be covered on the tests. He makes a very tough subject as easy and clear to follow as humanly possible. Online guides aren't as good as Cerruti's explanations.
I'm not sure how familiar you are with college classes, but with any major at WSU there are "UCore" classes. Basically general education classes, like chemistry, economics, humanities, diversity, English that all students must take.
As far as teachers go, I don't have a clue who you will have. Whenever you do register for classes use the website ratemyprofessor.com,
this is the site for WSU professors
Basically you look at your available course that you are going to take, you will see different "sections" of a course with different times and professors and search for the professor on that site and hopefully there will be students that have rated that professor for good or bad.
But more likely than not you will be fine with whatever professor you get. I have had Asian professors that barely speak English but I still do fine in the class. But it's nice to have hindsight.
Plus, during orientation on that third day you meet your counselor (for your business major, all majors have different counselors) that will help guide you in what classes you need to take. Then they make you register right then and there so you probably won't have time to research professors. This counselor more likely than not will be your counselor for your entire time at WSU (granted you stick with that major). Your counselor will be your go to person with academic questions and scholarship opportunities for your business major. They are also a great resource for internships and job opportunities. That's what they are there for.
If you can, try to get all your classes one after another and don't try to have class before 9am. Trust me, I had a 7:45am calculus 2 math lab all last semester and it sucked ass. But sometimes those early times are the only "sections" for a course you need available.
I haven't shopped for an ISP around here for a few years, but I was under the impression that there were some alternatives to Spectrum, even if they were lackluster (Frontier, First Step, etc.).
Anyway, speedtest.net gives me a result of ~107/10/62 @~$66/month, so YMMV, I suppose.
I've had my ipad since 2019 and have only used 14GB, 8 of which are taken up by OS related things. Also, I'd recommend getting a case with a pen holder like this.
For whatever reason the Android version (as of this morning) is still listed as being in Beta. If you can't find it via Play Store's search, here's the direct link: WA Notify
Charcoal filters aren't designed to fix hard water - you'd have to buy a fancy reverse osmosis or salt-based ion exchange system to soften the water.
A 5-gallon jug costs about $12, and less than $2 to refill. $15 on Amazon for a little pump that sits on top of the jug and you're good to go.
Get a pocket knife regardless of the rules. Get good at deploying it from your pocket in one move. Other than that learn how to punch someone in the throat/nuts to get away.
This is my pocket knife. Its just a great tool to have for all sorts of things, but if I ever had to use it on someone the serrated edge would fucking filet someone. Super sharp. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0009VC9YA/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_apa_v5MByb4KWWWM2
