WEEK OF 4/25/22
Dear Red Lions,
Once this week is over, it will be onto Reading Week and Finals! Before we get there take note that this Friday will be TD Day organized by our TD Student Activities Committee (SAC)! Aside from the inflatables filling up the lower courtyard, our TD Dining Hall will be serving up a cookout of burgers and hot dogs in the upper courtyard.
Once we hit Sunday 5/1 we will go into Reading Week and our TD Dining Hall will be open 24 hours for Quiet Study only. Please remember that Quiet Hours will be in effect at all times which means no noise from 11pm to 8am every day. We take this very seriously so that we can make sure all TDers are able to sleep and study when needed!
You should have all seen the emails sent out over the weekend by our TD Operations Manager, Zina Anwar, detailing the closing of the college and summer storage. Please read those emails very, very carefully! And remember that final checkout of your on-campus room for everyone (except the graduating seniors) is Thursday 5/12! At noon swipe access will be switched off so you’ll no longer be able to get into the TD gate or entryways. Students who are staying to work Commencement will need to move out to their assigned housing as well. No exceptions!
Here are some important events for the next couple of weeks. We’ll send out a separate note about upcoming study breaks for Reading Week:
The TD Buttery is proud to announce their final special of the year: Taco Night! Come to the courtyard at 9pm on Wednesday (4/27) where they will be firing up on the grill a selection of tacos with homemade salsa and your choice of carnitas, mole chicken, or seasoned potatoes and beans!
More delicious cookies brought to you by our wonderful Graduate Affiliates, Elton Zhou and Caroline Echeandia-Francis. So take a quick break from your final PSet and paper!
We are excited to have First Year Olympics back! Show up with our TD pride and beat everyone else (especially Silliman) in events like rap-battling, slip and slide kickball, Wii boxing, and more! The opening ceremony is 4/29 with the Olympics the next day on 4/30. If you want to join in the fun, email your co-captains at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org!
