The Faculty Club will be meeting this week, during the usual hours (Wednesdays and Thursdays 5:00-8:00 pm). We’ll close during Exam Week and Spring Break, and then open again in Week One of the Spring Term.
The Senate-sponsored “Talk to Your Dean Night” series continues this week with a double-header and a presidential appearance. Yes, that’s right. Wednesday we’ll have Dean Juan-Carlos Molleda of the School of Journalism as well as Dean Christoph Lindner from the College of Design. Both deans will be available to chat informally about whatever’s on your mind. Rumors that the two will settle, in an arm-wrestling match, the age-old question of which school is more “awesome,” are likely false. Lindner will, however, be offering the Six-o-Clock Toast.
Thursday Michael Schill will be on hand, taking the “Talk to Your Dean Night” series to a presidential level. With his decidedly non-Caesarian tendencies, our president has little reason to “beware the Ides of March.” We will, however, be marking the anniversary of Caesar’s death with a Six-o-Clock Toast from Mary Jaeger, Professor of Classics and avowed partisan of the Julio-Claudian dynasty.
Hope to see you either night, or both nights.
Yours, James Harper
Chair of the Faculty Club Board
