Word down at the faculty club is that Chairman Harper has finally relented to Senate pressure and agreed to reopen the Faculty Club tomorrow:
The Faculty Club opens its doors again this week for the Winter Term, and will continue in operation while university classes are in session. We meet in a convivial room at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, with free hors d’oeuvres and reasonably priced drinks.
Wednesday, expect a bunch of senators to come over after the meeting of the University Senate. If you’re good & sick of hearing about those lousy legislators in Washington DC, cheer yourself up by rubbing elbows with and getting the scuttlebutt from senators who have actually managed to avoid any sort of “shutdown” here on campus.
On Thursday, we will enter through the south portico of the museum (Marché entrance) rather than our usual front door. This is because the JSMA is holding a patron’s preview of their new exhibitions, which will have their public opening the following evening. Rumors that we may get a sneak preview of our own are as of yet unconfirmed.
So come one night or both, bring a friend if you like, and swap tales of winter break adventures (intellectual and otherwise) with your colleagues. Perfect Hope to see you there!
Yours, James Harper
Chair of the Faculty Club Board
