An Invitation from the Dean of Freshmen

Brownies or "brownies"? I'm not telling.

Dear Members of the Class of 2020:

Having had a chance to talk to a number of you over the past week, it's clear that the election has occupied your hearts and minds. My mind, on the other hand, has been occupied by the ounce of Sour Diesel that I ordered two weeks ago in preparation for Question 4’s inevitable success.  Whatever your political position in this very polarizing time, I think it is important to stop and reflect, and if we join together in some “puff-puff-pass”, we can contribute to our country's healing. 

With that in mind, I hope you will join me at the Freshman Dean’s Office at 6 Prescott tonight from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. for an informal “kick-back” and conversation about where we are as a country and how, with resolve, compassion, and a little bit of assistance from the “devil’s lettuce”, we can ensure a future for ourselves and our kids in which peace and equity triumph. I know many of your proctors have reached out, and Dean O'Dair's comforting e-mail a few days ago pointed to local plugs and dispensaries you might take advantage of. But this will be an additional opportunity, complete with brownies, “brownies”, and 5 gallons of my very own Magic Elixir, to draw strength from one another and figure out how we, as individuals and a community, can actually move forward. I look forward to seeing you.
