I am visiting my P’92 for a couple of days, so the message below is a pre-post. However, I wanted to add the message from President Hatch that went out to the campus community following the terrible events in Pittsburgh. Our hearts are with all who are impacted by this horrible act, with our Deac families in Pittsburgh, and with Hillel and our Jewish community here on campus.
One of the many college-related publications that come to my inbox is The Edit, which is a New York Times e-newsletter that is written by college students and recent graduates. This issue happens to be about how to make friends. Which seems like such an easy thing to do – until you move to a completely new place and have to build your friend base from scratch – such as when you first go to college, or when you graduate and move to a new city. The discomfort of trying to find your friend group is something I would bet you virtually all college students go through – so if this might apply to your Deac, The Edit might have some helpful suggestions.
In other news, coming up this week is a Voices of Our Time event with Teju Cole, who is a New York Times Magazine photography critic and creative writer. Also we will have our 24th annual Halloween Concert, which really is a treat and your Deacs should experience it, and The Wolves will be performed in the Ring Theatre.
This is just a smattering of things, of course. Your Deacs can check out the Events Calendar for this week and see more events and activities.
Make it a great week, Deac families!
