ShredFest: Get Your Documents Ready!

ShredFest is fast approaching! Be prepared by getting your documents ready. Note that the University is under a litigation hold. If you plan on shredding university records/documents, make sure that they have met retention before January 1, 2010. You can contact Aimee Smart (Office of General Counsel) if you have any questions.

The Return of the Fire & Ice Chili Challenge

Last Wednesday, March 27, the Fire & Ice Chili Challenge returned after five long-awaited years. It was a heated battle and the whole day was filled with excitement, tension, and the aroma of chili floating through the air. Twelve departments from across the university participated, each presenting their finest chili. After careful consideration, our judges deemed the winners:

  • First Place: John Mihevic (Rec Center)
  • Second Place: Padma Patil (Provost's Office)
  • Third Place: Sarah Meaney (Residence Life)

Shout out to our very own Patrick Hawk for winning the People's Choice award! Thank you to everyone who participated and showed up. The wait was worth it and we can't wait to battle it out again next year!
