For our alumni families

It was a chilly morning on campus – a brisk 35 degrees, and the first freeze warning of the season. Temps are going to be up tomorrow, then sliding down gradually the rest of the week, with a predicted high of only 47 on Friday. But the sun is out, the air is crisp, and it feels pretty great to walk around campus today.

It’s Monday, so we have a new Weekly Message for First-Year families. This week it is about time management and overcommitment, and you can read it here. Unlike the Daily Deac, these weekly messages are not something we push out to you via subscription, you either access it on the website or I try to mention it in the Daily Deac.

For our alumni families in the Daily Deacdom, we got some news about the Homecoming football game time today – it will be a noon kickoff. Also a reminder that Homecoming registration will close this Thursday, October 25th at noon, so if you plan to attend, pls be sure to register before that time. See details below.
