From Chancellor Rebecca Blank:
As we head into the final days of the semester, I’d like to invite all faculty and staff to gather on Bascom Hill, celebrate the close of another academic year, and sample a little bit of summer.
The annual Employee Appreciation Ice Cream Social is set for Tuesday, May 15, beginning at 1 p.m. on Bascom Hill. We’ll serve free ice cream until 2:30 p.m., or until we run out, whichever comes first.
All your favorite ice cream flavors will be on hand, as well as a lactose-free vanilla ice cream. Other dietary alternatives will also be available upon request. Administrators, deans and directors will be scooping as a gesture of thanks for your hard work and dedication this academic year.
Work units are encouraged to be flexible with employees to allow them to come to Bascom Hill, or are encouraged to host celebrations in their own locations especially for those units located off campus. In the event of rain on May 15, we will gather in the Birge Hall lobby.
