Did you know?

Some of you have only been here a few short months or weeks. Others may have been here since Ronald Reagan was President.

No matter how long you've worked at Houghton, it's not always easy to keep track of who does what, and how things work.

This issue of "Celebrate!" contains just a small amount of the information that you may need to know at some point or another, so take a look and let us know if there's anything that we should pass along in the next issue.

Table top inserts in the dining hall – one needs to be approved by the Student Life Office.  Please do not put out during hot meal times due to the activity in the area and tables being occupied.  Please observe good “advertising etiquette” and not put your event in front of another and remove your inserts when the event is over.  Make sure that your insert contains complete information about the event such as event name, date, time, location, cost (if applicable), who is sponsoring the event, and contact information.
