Trumbull Notes

TrumBulletin 1-23-18

Welcome back and to the new semester.  I hope you had wonderful breaks with time to reconnect with family members and friends with whom you grew up, time to sleep late and read some things you did not have to read, time get outside (especially for those who come from warmer places but also for those who love winter).  Most of you (not all!) missed some prolonged, bitterly cold weather here along with a “cyclone-bomb” (which was both a new term to me and a new experience as well on Jan. 4th).  It was, in other words, a good time to be away.

It’s fall break.  I imagine many of you feel as do I which is, simply:   We need this.  If there’s anything true of Yalies, it’s that you are committed to many activities – academics, of course, but also extracurricular groups, social activities, athletics, etc.  Your daily schedules are packed; commitments sometimes even overlap.

This past weekend was a busy and wonderful one with good weather, an art studio open house on Friday, a home football game (congratulations to the team on a terrific win), our TrumBall and a YSO concert featuring a Trumbull sophomore all on Saturday, followed, for me, by a trip to Vassar to celebrate Betsy Bradley’s (the former head of Branford) inauguration as Vassar’s new president.

Whenever Trumbull has been busy, it means that I have lots of thanks to express.

I’ll usually send out the TrumBulletin on Monday, but due to Labor Day, it’s Tuesday this time.

I hope all enjoyed our long weekend, especially the lovely weather yesterday for Labor Day.

Here’s hoping we can enjoy the weather for a bit longer.

I hate to see summer end but also look forward to the fall.

(I’m sending this out at 9:30 p.m. We have half a chocolate cake and half a Claire’s coffee cake from today’s reception for our fellows who serve as first year advisers. Rocky Mt. Candy Company also sent some Carmel Apples today as samples to each Head of College. I’m taking these items to the Buttery after I send this out. Help yourself.)

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.
