Men of Duncan Hall,

Happy Election Day! Why early November? The Weather and Farmers! In the 1800s, the agrarian economy was an important factor, and farmers weren’t able to travel easily until the harvest was over. Also, the onset of winter conditions in areas that had winter conditions made travel a problem, so elections happened in the late fall.  It was 70 degrees yesterday! As we anticipate the next President of the United States, here are some things that you know will be happening in Duncan Hall:

Save the Dates
Many have been asking questions about the following dates so here they are:

  • RA Application Opens: November 23rd
  • Winter Break: Hall Closes Saturday December 17th at 2pm. Opens Sunday January  15th at 9am. You will not have access to the dorm during these dates. Avoid coming back early because no one will be here to let you in until Sunday January 15th.
  • Duncan Highrise: February 11, 2017 in Chicago!!

Man Hour
This Thursday, Matthew Heeder will lead a walk-over to Dillon Hall's Milkshake Mass. Meet in the 24 at 9:40pm.

CARE with Annie
Next Wednesday at 5pm, Annie Eaton, a CARE Consultant, will host an event at Duncan Hall. At Notre Dame, we care about the health and well-being of our students.  CARE provides early intervention in a principled way to support members of the Notre Dame community who are experiencing stressful or difficult situations. There is no concern or problem too small or insignificant.

Donut Mass and Hall Council Tonight!

That's all for this week and in light of the election, Hillary dies and goes to Heaven where she meets St. Peter. She notices that there are clocks everywhere. She asks St. Peter why are there so many clocks here.  St. Peter tells her that each clock represents a person on earth and that every time a person tells a lie, the clock ticks off one-second.  Puzzled, Hillary asks, "Where is Bill's clock?" St. Peter answers, "Bill's clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a fan."

Peace brothers,
