Men of Duncan Hall,

Happy First Gen Chem Test Day. With craziness of term papers, meetings and exams, here are 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 all the happenings at Duncan Hall this week.  We can't promise A's on papers, but we can offer a little bit of peace of mind. 

Hall Council at 10pm
All are encouraged to attend hall council at 10pm every Tuesday Nights. There's a sense of camaraderie when we get together! Community Brotherhood Respect.

Ping Pong Tournament
Sign up for Ping Pong Tournament tonight at Hall Council.  Once the field of 64 is filled, then that's it. No email sign ups.

FIFA Tournament
If you signed up, then find your opponent to play your game(s). The goal was to play the championship tonight but that's not happening because the bracket is not updated!

GameDay Weekend
I'm sure you all know that it's Michigan State Week! GameDay Weekend Protocols remain the same as last weekend. See Attachments.

Parents and Family Weekend: DUKE
If your family will be in town for the DUKE Game, we encourage you to invite them to Duncan Hall throughout the weekend so we can host them in our home. Invitations have been sent home, but if you know that they're coming, then RSVP at so we know how much to plan.

Duncan Ryan Shirts
We still have a few Duncan Ryan TShirts and Tanks left. They are $10. See Rector to purchase one.

Lost and Found
There is a lost and found box in the Duncan Staff Office. It comprises of items turned into staff members or picked up from various events. Rector picked up a TOYOTA Key with Mei Fitness and another fitness membership on it.

Picked up from SYR: Black Jos A. Bank blazer, Cream CK blazer, Pink "FOREST" hoodie, Blue and Yellow North Face raincoat. 

Missing from SYR: Navy Blue Jos A. Bank blazer - Could very well be the case that the Blue and Navy blazers were mixed up. 

Green Blazers
On the topic of blazers, the green blazers are at the embroidery shop so hopefully we will get them by the DUKE weekend so our parents can see them. Pencil your calendar for Friday 9/23 7pm-8pm for the Green Blazer Ceremony.  We will know early next week if they will be ready.

If you lose money from laundry service downstairs or to report any issues, contact ND Vending at or call 574-631-7777. No hassle policy! They're great!

To see if the machines are available before you drag your laundry to the basement, check out:

Saint Michael's Laundry picks up on Thursday mornings. Highly recommend that you drop off Wednesday nights. 

That's almost all for us this afternoon; here the one more thing: if "can't" is short for "cannot," then what is "don't" short for? DOUGHNUT! Duncan Doughnut Mass at 9PM. All are welcome! May God watch over your studies and your stress level.

Peace Brothers,
Nhat Nguyen
