To all Trumbullians celebrating Passover, I wish you a happy Passover and the best for enjoying wonderful seders and traditions whether you are home this evening with family members, heading to the Slifka Center or celebrating with friends elsewhere. Enjoy and revel in the beautiful spring day we have to kick Passover off.
We’re finally experiencing spring. The weather will get better from here through the end of the semester. All outdoor furniture will reappear in our courtyard. Planning for our Pamplona festival is underway. Use our courtyard! Know that we have a volleyball net (and volley ball). If you want to play, let us know and we’ll set it up. If you want the corn hole games out, we can do that too. If you have other ideas for simple events in the courtyard or equipment, let us know.
March arrives this week. (How did that happen?) We’re well into mid-term season now. Get sleep and exercise and eat well as many exams occur over these next two weeks. Keep in mind that spring break (and spring itself) will arrive very soon. You’ll be able to collapse and relax then.
Stop. Think. Not every idea that pops into our heads is a good one.
Happy Valentine’s to all in the college.
A terrific dining staff:
Trumbulletin: Feb. 6, 2017
The semester is now well underway. Schedules are set. I hope you are all happy with your classes. I also hope that most of you have evaded the flu. (It is clearly around us. Be careful, wash hands often, get rest and drink plenty of fluids if you get it. You can still get a flu shot if you have not already done so. If you have had the flu or get it, you have my sympathy.)

No one is in the gym. No lights are on except for those in the stairwells.
We’re here at Thanksgiving break. Whew! For many of us, perhaps most, it couldn’t get here soon enough. Take a deep breath (or two or three) and relax.
Some of you are traveling straight home. Travel safely. Enjoy your families (or the families who have adopted you for the break). Get more sleep, work on those papers that will be due soon under less stressful circumstances, and do relax.
Today I send you a mini-Trumbulletin about a very special tea guest; tomorrow I’ll send you a broader one. To get right to the point of today’s message…….
Come hear a very special guest, Karen Diver, Special Assistant to President Obama for Native American Affairs speak today at 4 p.m. in the Trumbull House.
Today, at 4 p.m. in the Trumbull House I will be hosting a very special Tea Guest: Karen Diver.
It’s a big day…..
It’s election day. I left the house at 6 a.m. this morning to drive to my polling place in Madison, Ct. – at Exit 61 just off Route 95. It is a clear, beautiful fall day. Lines were long but they moved quickly. By the time I arrived back in Trumbull I found that the rest of our Trumbull staff had voted as well. Do the same. Vote (if you’re a US citizen, and, if not, encourage your friends to vote today.) Then gather in our Trumbull Dining Hall beginning at 8 p.m. to watch the returns.
