Welcome Back to Campus! Now, Log in to Your Calendar
Wow! It’s 2019. We’re almost through two decades of the 21st century. Pretty incredible! Of course, a new year – and a new semester – brings a new list of events, so open your Day-Timer and start making notes:
You Want Writers? Writing Arts Has Writers for You!
Expanding the already glowing reputation of Rowan Writing Arts as a department that publishes as well as instructs, three of our colleagues have new books on the shelves, and – of course – also available online. Here’s our latest list of achievements:
Print Center Almost Back in The Pink . . . Uh, The ‘Ink’
The Rowan University Print Center in Memorial Hall is working its way back to full operation after a major HVAC malfunction flooded much of the facility near the end of winter break. Center administrators are asking that faculty send in projects as early as possible, keeping in mind the facility is closed over the weekend, meaning jobs submitted late in the week will not be ready on Monday morning. Despite these problems, customers are being asked to order projects through the online system and the Center will work on them in house or transparently farm them out to a partner vendor for its standard rates. Also, the facility’s wide-format printers were not damaged, so banners, posters, and other oversize work is being processed as usual. You can call the Center at 856-256-4623 with any questions.
Wednesdays We’ve Got Quizzo On Our Minds
It’s time to flex our trivia muscles again as we’re looking to schedule another session of Wednesday Night Quizzo at P.J. Whelihan’s in Westmont. Following our oh-so-close second-place finish last fall (after a three-way tie in regulation), we want to put our collective and extensive faculty knowledge on display once again. Let me know if you’re interested to join in on a Wednesday night in mid- to late-February or early March – once the semester is smoothly underway – and we’ll pick an exact date for the competition. Also, on the heels of last summer’s well-attended Phillies game, we’re looking to schedule another Rowan Writing Arts Night at Citizens Bank Park. Let me know if you and any family members or friends are interested.
Once again, welcome back to campus and have a great semester!
