Wondering what’s going on in the division? Look no further—upcoming events, recent new hires, and next month’s birthdays are listed below. If you’d like to contribute an item to the personnel announcement, e-mail adminfinance@towson.edu.

Happy Halloween!
It’s Halloween–a time for tricks, treats and the start to TU’s Homecoming Weekend. Whether decked out in black and gold or dressed in your Halloween best, we hope everyone in the division has a fun and festive day. In keeping with the holiday theme, here are a few spooktacular jokes to begin your day:

How does a ghost say goodbye to a vampire?
So long, sucker!

How do monsters tell their future?
They read their horrorscope.

What is a vampire’s favorite holiday?

Did You Know…?
This fall, Event and Conference Services (ECS) staff continued their annual  tradition of donating much-needed supplies to a Title 1 school. This year Pam Mathis, ECS Sr. Event Manager, and Dan Sommerville, ECS Reservations Assistant, hand-delivered 161 school supplies to Bear Creek Elementary School in Dundalk, MD. Principal Cheryl Thim was ecstatic to receive the donation and accepted three large boxes of items with much appreciation.
