Around the Hill

Fall 2012

Picture this...It's BACK!

The Staff Assembly Council's Communication Committee warmly welcomes you to the Around the Hill quarterly newsletter.  For many, this will be the return of a favorite publication that fosters community and shares news "of the people, by the people, for the people."  Each issue will feature an office or department, a seasonal theme, or an interesting event on campus.  We welcome ideas and suggestions. 

Summer on the Hill

This summer the College encouraged a sense of community by offering a free lunch on Wednesdays.  Faculty, Staff, Maintenance and Operations and students working on the Hill for the summer enjoyed coming together to share an hour or so of conversations, good food and entertainment by fellow employees and students.  Thank you to the Staff Assembly Council, the office of the president, senior staff and to all who attended!
