Weekly Event Roundup with Campus Living & Residential Education: Thanksgiving Events Edition
Happy Monday! Here's what's happening on-campus, in the residence halls, and virtually this week. For the many of you who will be here over Thanksgiving Break, we look forward to see you there!
If you had previously informed us that you won't be on campus after Thanksgiving Break, but now will be here over those weeks, please let your residential staff point of contact as soon as possible! Next Monday, 11/30, we'll be temporarily pausing your GWorld access and COVID-19 testing requirements/reminders if you have informed us you won't be on campus for the rest of the semester. We want to make sure we aren't removing access for anyone who had a change in plans and will be here after the break!

Arts Café with Faculty in Residence Prof. Randi Kristensen
Tuesday, November 24  |  7:00 PM EST - 8:00 PM EST
Our Arts Café is a chance for us to get together and share the works of art -- music, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, painting, sculpture, dance, embroidery, anything! -- that we're finding sustaining during this Fall that is challenging on so many levels. What music are you listening to that you find calming, energizing, inspiring, or just fun?

Is there a poem or a short story or an essay or even the works of a particular writer that you're turning to these days? A dance video? A painting or a sculpture? A performance of some kind? Please join us to share something that's been moving you through this time. It can be someone else's work, or your own -- if you want to play us a song or read us a poem you wrote or share a drawing or a doodle, that's welcome, too.
