timbitWelcome to the centennial post of our news blog!  That’s a lot of sharing!

We would like to thank everyone who has contributed their news and hurrahs to the blog.

To mark the 100 posts, there will be 100 celebratory Timbits appearing in the staff/faculty lounge (Memorial 409) this Friday morning.  Stop by for a treat with your coffee!

Interested in an interactive evening of mystery and intrigue?  The Faculty is hosting a Murder Mystery Party (“Cruising for Murder”) on Friday, 05-Feb-2016, at 6:00pm in Main Faculty Lounge.

The setting for the evening is aboard a luxury cruise ship! Come to the party (in character) and receive an envelope with objectives. Mix and mingle with your fellow ‘passengers’ and talk to the people on your list, trying to discover hidden facts and information!

This event is sure to be entertaining!  Everyone is welcome!  The more the merrier! If you would like to participate, email Ashley at to RSVP (although extra characters will be available the night of if you spontaneously decide to come!)
