DOOR DECORATING CHALLENGE

This year the faculty will again challenge other departments (if they choose to join in) in an office door (or cubicle) decorating contest.  Frankly, we lost the coveted Doro Knob Trophy to Advancement last year and we want it back 🙂

The challenge will take place between Wednesday, 04-Dec-2013 and Friday, December 13, 2013.

As in previous years a panel of esteemed judges will determine the winner.  As also in other years, we’re pretty much going to make up how this will work as we go along.

So, get your competitive holiday spirit on, and help us get the trophy back celebrate the holidays in a fun and festive way 🙂

  1. It’s interesting to note that when looking into the UNBC job posting it gives a reference to the School of Education but when you click on it you don’t get to the faculty but to a secure site that requires a password… Maybe they don’t want you to know too much before you apply!! (LOL)

    Yet another great job on our news bulletin Karen Anne. Thanks for all you do for us. I am so glad you are taking time off to move into your new home. If anyone deserves that it is YOU. Basil

  3. I second that Basil! As a sessional instructor – one course at a time – I am not at the Faculty very often. This newsletter helps so much to keep in touch! The articles are short, to the point and very informative. Merci Karen Anne. Diane
