Well, the weather turned cold and rainy late last week and into Saturday. Our courtyard was soggy so the TCC had to make the call to cancel our dance floor and tent for the courtyard and to move the event in side. Many, many changes had to be made quickly and many, many TCC members came through for Trumbull’s TrumBall.
October arrives this coming Thursday. Summer is truly over. The weather’s been great and I hope it continues. Yet I do know that the semester is speeding by and that work is heating up. Take a deep breath. Keep working but also get enough sleep and exercise and take short breaks (see below – attend a tea or two, come to our Trumball, just take a walk.) I will host my first quiet study break late this Thursday evening following a dessert reception for sophomores.
Trumbull has two events scheduled today!
A New Year
It’s Rosh Hashanah. I wish all our Jewish students, resident fellows (and my own husband) a very happy and very, very sweet New Year.
We have tickets (free to you) for High Holy Day services for the Rosh Hashanah (Sept. 13-15) and Yom Kippur, Sept. 22-23. Notify Margaret Clark if you want tickets.
The semester is well underway. I wish the entire college a wonderful new academic year. Don’t forget to get those schedules signed and submitted!!!!
I hope settling in, shopping period, and, especially for those new to campus, choosing extra-curricular activities and getting to know people here are all going well. For the next couple days I know that there will be very hot weather. This may be difficult. Do come over to the college and use our cooler spaces. This will pass.
Welcome back (sophomores, juniors and seniors). Welcome, Trumbull Class of 2019.
Markers of another year completing are passing quickly. Classes are over, reading week is here, finals, senior week and graduation will be here in a flash.
The goals for this week are simple: Get work done, stay sane, and get some sleep. The FARR room will be open every morning with breakfast items and space to study from 6 a.m. at least until the dining room opens at 8 a.m.
There will be many study breaks in the evenings. Take breaks to get some exercise. Whine a little and be sympathetic to others’ whining but stay on task. Keep things quiet so all can work.
