Men of Duncan,
Happy Mid-term Week! I am sure you are enjoying the craziness that is term papers and multiple choice exams. A few study tips from the Internet: chew gum while test-taking to pump oxygen to the brain, listen to jazz music to "relieve boredom," and turn your course material into rhymes for ideal memorization. If you do happen to have a free moment, however, check out what's happening in Duncan in the next few weeks. We can't promise A's on papers, but we can offer a little bit of peace of mind.
For emergency purposes, those who are staying for spring break, please fill out this form. In addition, ARs Dom and Brian will love to hang out with you throughout break. It should be mostly stress free week! Also check out the Spring Break Special Bulletin for more details.
Here's the schedule for the basement storage:
Tuesday: after hall council for 30 minutes
Wednesday: 9:30pm - 10pm
Thursday: 9:30pm - 10pm

Room Picks and Lottery
We will have a public lottery on Tuesday March 21st after Hall Council. Duncan Hall room picks will be on Wednesday March 29th starting at 7pm until we finish, at approximately 8:30pm. You must be present for room picks. See the attachment for details. The lottery list will answer a lot of questions so I'll save the specific details until the lottery list is revealed.
Study Abroad List
In the effort you help you plan for next year's rooming arrangements, I've attached a list of those who are studying abroad so you can reach out to them. Again, the lottery list will be more telling and clear as to how room picks will go. Be patient.
Spring break is upon us. Let's talking about spring cleaning. The housekeepers will once again be cleaning your sinks and mirrors unless you opt out by writing it on your whiteboard. Be sure to clear your belongings in the sink area.
Also, please clean up after yourself in all public spaces. It is our home so everyone do our part to tidy up.
You did it! I know it's a long email and a tough week (NO JOKE!) o give yourself a pat on the back! May God watch over your studies and your stress level. Enjoy your spring break! REMEMBER YOUR KEYS, TRAVEL DOCUMENTS, MEDICATION, ETC.
