Men of Duncan,

Happy Tuesday of the First Week of Advent.  T'is the season when the days are shorter and the nights are longer.  T'is the season of waiting and anticipating. For many of us, that's finals and exams! For the Catholic Church, it's the advent, or 'coming,' of Christ. For all of us, here's what's "coming" up in Duncan Hall:

O'Leary Cup

I want to call your attention to RecSport's O'Leary Cup, awarded to the best InterHall Sports dorm. Duncan Hall is in second place behind Siegfried at the moment but we are in striking distance because Duncan has always been a strong spring InterHall Sports dorm.  Every game, every sport matters! Let's Goo Duncan!!! Here's the standings.

Odds and Ends

Christmas Closing

Just a reminder as you plan your Christmas Travels, all residence halls close at 2pm on Saturday December 17th and reopen on Sunday January 15th at 9am.


As the weather gets colder, remember that smoking is prohibited within 25 ft from any building on campus. Please do not smoke under the Duncan Hall archway.

That's all gentlemen, but one more thing, There are 3 fundamental truths about religion: Jews don't recognize Jesus as the Son of God, Protestants don't recognize the Pope as the Vicar of Christ, and Baptists don't recognize each other at the bar on Saturday nights.

Peace brothers,

Nhat Nguyen
