Jane Nowakowski is generously coordinating a roommate clearinghouse. If you need a roommate for the meeting, contact Jane by e-mail at; by phone at 609/921-7100, x8305 (work). She needs the following information from you: your name, how you can be reached, dates for which you need a roommate, and any other information which is important to you, such as any, all, or other than the following: you're a smoker/non-smoker and prefer/need to room with the same; you're willing to consider a triple (or not); you can't share with someone who snores, wears perfume, etc. In return, you'll receive a list of others who are looking and will get to make your own arrangements. No one assigns you a roommate!
