DID SOMEONE SAY CAKE?

kids-holding-welcome-signThe Faculty is VERY excited to welcome Nicole Higginbotham as Administrative Support for undergraduate programs in the faculty.  Nicole will be coming from the Business Co-op Office and will join our team this coming Thursday!  Rumour has it that there will be cake around 12:15pm on Thursday, but it is not sure whether the faculty is celebrating Nicole’s arrival or the fact that Karen-Anne has to finally clean her desk.  In either case, there is much rejoicing.  And cake.  There’s that too.

If you get a chance to stop by and say hello to Nicole please drop by!
