    Wrapping up

    December 28, 2012

    This time of year, campus is pretty quiet.  With most students and faculty away anyway, the staff exodus surrounding the holidays leaves only a handful of people around to keep the place running.  On a day like today - sitting in a cozy nook next to a window where I can watch the big fluffy snowflakes swirl to the ground, with peppermint hot chocolate close at hand - it makes squeezing out those last ounces of productivity before the weekend and before the New Year much more appealing.

     It also opens the door to a bit of reflection - for me, personally, it's been one adventurous year, and a good one at that.  Here's hoping your 2012 was good, and that your 2013 will be even better!

    Roommate (and other) Form Update

    December 19, 2012

    Class of 2017!  If you're curious about the mysterious roommate preference form, don't panic!  It will be available electronically in a few months.  This is but one of many forms that will be listed on your new-student checklist, all of which you'll get information about in upcoming paper and electronic mailings.

    So, watch your mailbox and your inbox and stay tuned, and until then, relax and enjoy the end of the world...or, uhm... year.
