Asia Tour Travelogue

This summer a whole slew of Diamond Mountaineers (yes, I'm copyrighting that phrase) swam the sky over to the Pacific Rim and did, well, a lot.  Thankfully Venerable Jigme took the time to document the travels and activities in what is aptly named the Asia Tour Travelogue.  It's so great to see and read about all the helpful and holy things the DM family is doing all over the world.

You can view the travelogue over at the schmancy new Worldview website.


Fall Term 2007 Begins!

Yesterday, September the 24th was the first day of DMU's Fall term 2007. After four days of a new Heart Yoga series everyone seems fully charged for the next five weeks. There are oodles of new faces on the land this term and almost as many new course offerings including: Connecting to Your Core, Ballet, and Heart Path to Ecstasy. If you want to know what any of the courses include check out the course catalog. In that PDF file you'll find course descriptions and schedules.

To kick things off proper, tonight will include a student orientation and no doubt announcements by our dear President Venerable Chuckyi and comedic stylings by DM "dad" Dr. David (find out about honeymooner's salad) . Both are worth the price of admission, I can assure you that.

Fall Term Reg Now Open!

Online registration for Fall term 2007 is now open. Also now online are campus schedules for the entire year and the 2007/2008 course catalog. If you ain't in the know, the catalog features descriptions of all the courses offered at DMU including pre-reqs and teacher listings. One super addition to this terms registration is that all the forms are online! So, hop over the the DMU section of the website and register. And please, thank our dear registrar Bets. It's my opinion that soon we should begin fundraising to build a statue of her. She deserves it.
