This Week's Message

 

END OF YEAR RECEPTION

It's been quite a year! We've gotten to know some fantastic new colleagues, said goodbye to some old friends, taught a lot of students, found new (temporary) homes in Sorensen...and of course there was that little matter of a campus-wide vote.

So come to Friday Conversation this week to let off your week 10 steam and have some snacks. In the spirit of this year, you can choose to have either two big snacks and a little snack, or three, equally-sized snacks.*

See you there!

 

-Margaret
