The Great Outdoors

After a couple of chilly days, we’re getting back up to the 70s and magnificent spring weather. And right now, there is no better place to be than outdoors on our beautiful campus.  You’ll see in the photos below that the trees and flowers are really spectacular.

Also to note: your Deacs are taking advantage of the grassy areas to study or relax, and to steal a few moments of joy on the swings.  Way to find those mindful moments outdoors!  It’s good for the body and the mind.

Spring brings tons of smiles and lots of ooh-ing and aah-ing from campus visitors when they see all the beautiful flowers and flowering trees.  Spring also brings us an abundance of pollen, and so it’s time when it is not unusual to hear the sniffling and sneezing of allergy sufferers.  Our Student Health Service ran an article a couple of years ago about seasonal allergies, and now is probably the time to share it once again.

One program note: there is a Purim Open House today from 4-5 pm at the Hillel Lounge in Collins.  There are a number of additional activities in the coming days and weeks surrounding the Jewish holidays – see more here and share with your Deacs if you wish.

Have a great day, Deac families!
