Are you finding that the beginning of the school year brings a wave of appointments, meetings, or classes to attend that fill your calendar?
If you are like me you may be asking where is the time going. Or perhaps how can I find time to squeeze in a phone call to touch base with a colleague.
My solution came in the form of a Welcome Back Women Reception at the Eberly Center for Women. This event will be on Thursday, September 6 from 4:30 -6:00 p.m. and is open to everyone. You can follow the crowd and listen for the music in the Eberly Center Courtyard (in front of Tucker Hall on Campus Road) for a casual afternoon of light refreshments and networking.
It may be awhile since you visited the Eberly Center but please bring a friend or colleagues with you.
If you have never stopped into the Center, the event will be the perfect time to check it out. We have been hard at work this summer renovating a couple of the rooms, including a new lactation room. The whole team will be present to answers questions and to give tours of our great facilities.
Please call 419-530-8570 if you have any questions and I hope you get it on your busy calendar!
