Seen on campus: Tiger Woods, Noam Chomsky, students coming together for good

Sightings on campus: TIGER WOODS spent Monday on the Stanford practice golf course getting ready for the Presidents Cup in San Francisco this week  . . . Steve Young, who visits the Stanford Video studio regularly to tape appearances on ESPN, was there last Friday . . .  Regina Dugan, director of  the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, commonly known as DARPA, was on campus last week, according to the New York Times . . . Noam Chomsky spoke at an anti-war rally on White Plaza Sunday. (Who said Stanford students don’t have a radical streak?) Some simply just streak: Apparently, a group of students, undeterred by the threat of a nasty flu bug, held an unofficial smooch fest on the Quad – some even mooned the Full Moon.

UPDATE: FBI Director Robert Mueller spoke to alums of the Graduate School of Business and the Law School Thursday night. The title of his talk? “Transforming the FBI in an Uncertain World.”

SIGOURNEY WEAVER, ’72, was not on campus as far as we know, but she celebrates a birthday Thursday – her 60th.

The group is hosting a benefit concert Thursday evening at 7 in the CoHo and continues to collect donations of light clothing, blankets, flashlights and bandages. Donation boxes are set up in most undergraduate dorms and the organization is hoping to have them  outside CoHo during the concert. The organization already has sent 10 boxes to the Philippines via Philippine Airlines, says senior SYLVIE ROUSSEAU. They are referring those who wish to donate money to www.sealnetonline.org/ketsana. “SEAL Net is an organization started by Stanford students, but separate from the university,” Rousseau said, adding that all donations will be sent to the Philippine Red Cross.
