SOE Reading Day Luncheon – Tues. 12/4 from 12-2 p.m.
Location: SOE Building, Room 118
Just a reminder that our SOE Reading Day Luncheon will be held on Tues. 12/4 from 12-2 p.m.
This year we will have a holiday sing-off between departments and the LIS department has already identified an outstanding cast of faculty and staff that are going to at least try and sing for everyone’s entertainment :-)!
Julie is preparing her traditional movie and please also be sure to pay your social committee dues and contribute to the housekeepers’ fund so the Dean can honor each of them at the luncheon.
