Cold end to the week

I don’t know about you, but I am still riding the high of the win over Louisville on Wednesday night.  A lot of the toilet paper is gone from the rolling, but some of it is still up.  And today has been a cold and quite windy day. If you take a peek at the Quad Cam, you might be able to see one superlong strand of TP in the lower right hand corner of your screen.  For the South Carolinians in the Daily Deacdom, gently lilting TP in the trees always reminds me of Spanish moss, which is one of my favorite SC things.

Spring Break is here, and Campus Dining has put out its list of Spring Break hours for the various campus eateries.  If your Deac is on campus, this will be a good link to share.

And I meant to post this earlier in the week, but here are some Spring Break safety reminders for students.  Thanks to our University Police for helping get this list to me.

Have a great weekend, everyone!


Is your student traveling for Spring Break?

Here are some tips you may wish to share with your Deac.

Foreign travel: check the U.S. State Department travel warnings website for advisories.  Not all countries have safety requirements for things such as zip lines or parasailing. Only use established taxis and do not go to an unknown destination. Have a few dollars of the local currency when you arrive.  Photocopy your passport. Use an international cell/data plan to avoid high roaming charges.

Money: always have enough money to get back to your hotel. Take only one Credit card and your debit card; keep them on you at all times. Know the phone number to cancel credit cards if stolen.

Communication: Carry your cell phone at all times. Be sure a family member knows your travel plans, where you are staying, and when you will return.

Health: remember your medications. Use sunscreen if you are in a sunny location.  Do not accept food or drinks from strangers.

General: Don’t go anywhere alone; go in pairs or groups.
