September 18: Picnic and Spurrabration

Das Picknick  (1864) by Carl Spitzweg 
Dr. Robin Murphy writes:
Literati and Sigma Tau Delta are sponsoring a Welcome Back Picnic for the department on Tuesday, September 18th from 5-6pm (preceding Spurrabration).

Last year’s picnic was small [ed.:  see photo above], but it was nice to visit with each other outside the classroom. It’s also a good time to recruit students into clubs and to introduce new faculty and such.

The clubs will provide the meat (and some bean burgers for us ‘bean eaters’), buns, drinks, condiments, and utensil stuffs. We’ll also have door prizes.

We encourage faculty, staff and students to bring their families, invite alumni, and bring a side dish. We’d like to get a general number on attendees, so please sign up in HM 301 and encourage the majors in your classes to do the same.

Finally, we encourage people to eat, visit and then attend Spurr-erbration, which begins at 6:30 in the Regents room and ends with a reception following in the old President’s Home on-campus. (Ask Dr. Hada for more info.)
