TRUMBULL COLLEGE: September 8, 2020 Hope you had a relaxing weekend (sorry – I know you had class yesterday, but Leah and I were off)! A big thank you to our FroCos, who helped our TrumFrosh make it through Orientation during these unusual times!! The job is always difficult, but this year has brought new challenges – and I truly commend their efforts. Congrats, TrumFrosh, on making it through your first week of classes!

Hope you all had a wonderful November Recess! The Game was amazing – HUGE congrats to our football players! Also, my husband and I had fun sharing part of our Thanksgiving Day with a bunch of Trumbullians at the Omni’s amazing buffet. Hope you all had a chance to rest and rejuvenate.

Hope this finds all of you doing well. A few more days, and there will be a nice, one-week break! Have fun at The Game! All the best to our football players!

Since there won’t be Dean’s Notes next week, I’ll also take a moment now to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. You make my life here at Yale and in Trumbull incredibly rewarding – I’m thankful that I get to be your Dean. I’m also very thankful for Leah! She’s amazing, as you all know. :)

I’m sending one of my regular wellness reminders a little early this year! You’ve probably noticed a lot of sniffling and coughing in your classrooms already. Don’t forget: Getting rest is very important and Vitamin C is your friend (orange juice is a great source!)! Stay well and get well soon if you already got sick.

I hope you all had a nice weekend! Now that we’ve settled in for the term, I want to draw your attention to the Academic Strategies Program – please make use of their workshops! I have heard from students from all years that these workshops are incredibly helpful. Make use of them! Every week, we include a list of the upcoming workshops – most of them are held right around the corner in the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning.
