Items for the Strong College Newsletter may be submitted at any time
to the College Office (Room 140), and by 12:00 noon on Thursdays for 
inclusion in the next week’s issue.  Events are open to all members of 
Strong College unless otherwise indicated.


GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

- Per aspera -

We have been told that the most serious plumbing problem that had been 
causing water to back up out of students’ sinks and onto the floor has 
now been fixed (hooray!) (and thanks to Dr. White for losing her 
temper).  This does not mean that there may not be an occasional clog 
from time to time when things go down a drain that shouldn’t, but it 
does mean that none of us should come home to any surprise floods in our 
rooms.  If your room does experience a flood out of the sink that isn’t 
the result of just an ordinary stopped-up drain please report it 
immediately to your RA or Dr. O’Hara, and the news will be passed on to 
the University Safety Officer, who will be following up for us.  Our 
sincere apologies to all who were inconvenienced by this very unpleasant 
problem.

We have been really disappointed over the last couple of weeks to have 
found a number of empty beer bottles and cans left in hallways, 
stairwells, and bathrooms.  Drinking is only permitted in Strong College 
by persons over 21, and then only behind closed doors.  There is no 
excuse for leaving trash in the hallways, especially alcohol bottles.  
Please have some respect for yourself and your fellow residents: behave 
responsibly and clean up any mess you make.  Anyone who wants to pursue 
a rowdy and inconsiderate lifestyle this year should consider 
transferring to another building or moving off campus next week during 
room change.

- Ad astra -

Prospective library monitors have gotten together to set up a schedule 
for the Strong College Library (Room 330), so that we can open for 
business.  (Because the Library will have lots of books and a few 
computers in it the room must have a regular schedule of monitored open 
hours.)  If all goes well we hope to be open in a week or two.  If you 
are interested in serving as a volunteer library monitor for a few hours 
each week (a great opportunity to concentrate your study hours) and you 
haven’t been contacted yet, either return your interest form to your RA, 
or slip a note to Dr. White or Dr. O’Hara.

Strong College member David Effren was just elected president of UNCG 
Hillel.  Congratulations to David!

- News Flash: President’s Tea a Great Success! -

The first President’s Tea took place last Wednesday in the Junior Common 
Room from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m.  A rollicking good time was had by all, along 
with refreshments (not just tea), good conversation, and even a sing-a-
long.  The President’s Tea happens every Wednesday at this time and is 
open to all Strong College members — come next week and bring your 
roommates and neighbors!

- Interested in Law and Government? -

Prof. Susan Haire, Strong College Fellow and member of the Department of 
Political Science, invites any Strong College members interested in law 
and government to give her a call (x5989) or stop by her office (230 
Graham) to say hello.  While you’re there, congratulate her on the birth 
of her daughter this past summer!


COLLEGE CALENDAR

(This section of the Newsletter will fill up with daily events as the 
semester proceeds.  Anyone who wants to announce an event or happening 
of any kind is free to insert a notice in this calendar — just bring 
your text to the College Office and give it to Dr. O’Hara, or slip it 
under the door if he isn’t there.)

- Everyday -

Come join your fellow Strong College members for breakfast, lunch, and 
dinner in the Caf — we eat in the raised section of the State Dining 
Room, right behind the food serving room.  Bring your roommates and 
neighbors, too!

- Labor Day Weekend -

Things can get quiet on campus on a long weekend, even in a busy place 
like Strong College.  Counteract the isolation by joining those people 
who will be here all weekend in the Strong College dining area in the 
Caf, and by spending some time down in the Game Room and the Junior 
Common Room on the first floor.  Who knows, there may even be some free 
time available on the pool table or the piano!  Or, take a trip to 
Carowinds…

- Sunday, 4 September -

9:00 a.m. or thereabouts: day trip to Carowinds Amusement Park!  
Carowinds, near Charlotte, is one of the most fun places in the state, 
and a Strong College contingent will be driving there together on 
Sunday.  Admission discounts may be available.  Contact Allen Frady (RA 
second floor south) or Thomas Dort (RA first floor south) for more 
details.

- Wednesday, 7 September -

4:00 - 5:00 p.m., Junior Common Room: President’s Tea — everyone 
invited to this weekly social hour (Laurie White).

11:00 p.m. - 1:00 a.m.: Listen to Strong College’s own Kathy Ross on 
“The Eighties Show,” WUAG 103.1 FM.  It’s the strongest couple hours of 
college radio in town.

- Friday, 9 September -

12:00 - 1:00 p.m., College Dining Area: Senior Common Room Lunch, for 
Fellows of Strong College and invited students.  The Fellows plan to 
invite a few students to join them each week, so that over the year 
everyone will receive an invitation at least once.

- Monday, 12 September -

5:00 p.m., 220 Eberhart Building: General meeting for all UNCG students 
interested in pre-med, pre-vet, and other pre-health sciences programs 
with Dr. Rob Cannon (pre-med advisor and Strong College Fellow).  Dr. 
Cannon will have just come back from a weekend meeting for North 
Carolina pre-med advisors, and will have useful information for 
everyone.

- Tuesday, 13 September -
