GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS - Welcome to Families! - A hearty Strong College greeting to any parents and other family members who may be here this weekend in connection with the University’s Family Weekend. We hope you will enjoy your visit, and will come back often! Dr. White and Dr. O’Hara and all the Strong College staff are always happy to have parents and other family members of our students stop by for a visit. - Strong College Library Opens - The Library is open! The Strong College Library, Room 330, is now open for our members’ use. The current hours are: 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7:00 - 11:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. The Library has been established through the cooperative efforts of many members and friends of Strong College who have donated books and other materials. The collection will continue to grow through the year and the facilities in general will get better and better. Special thanks are due our volunteer librarians, without whose help the Library couldn’t run: Meg Campbell, Tara Cowan, Heather Derrington, Tricia Esposito, Kristen Fisher, Gina Hutchens, Brandi Maxwell, Woto Nyomba, Jena Poindexter, Kisha Robinson, Jeremy Sarine, Ann Smith, Rifkin Young, and head librarian Susan Wyant. - News of Members - Naiya Becker’s poem “Passages” will be published soon. Congratulations to Naiya on what we are sure will be the first of many more to come! Several Strong College musicians participated in Joseph M. Bryan Recognition Day in downtown Greensboro on the 9th of September: Monica Chew, Lisa DiLuigi, Richard Glass, Keith Grush, Shekinah Shahid-el, and Robert Stockburger. Thanks to them all! - Gardens and Grounds - Sheila Schurer and Bob O’Hara met recently to talk about gardening and landscaping possibilities for Strong College during the coming year and into the future. Any students who expressed interest in gardening and landscaping should have received note from Ms. Schurer already. If you haven’t heard from anyone but are interested in joining in (and getting your hands dirty), be sure to come to the President’s Tea on October 5th and look for Ms. Schurer, or give her a call at x5241. - President’s Tea - All members of Strong College are invited every week to the President’s Tea, which takes place Wednesdays at 4:00 p.m. in the Junior Common Room. This informal social hour is the perfect time and place to meet some of your neighbors and to make new friends. Be there! (That means you.) - Poem-of-the-Week - A new tradition begins: The Strong College Poem-of-the-Week is now appearing on the bulletin board outside the College Office. This week’s poem is Dylan Thomas’s “Do not go gentle into that good night.” Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. And you, my father, there on the sad height, Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray. Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
