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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help the needy this holiday season by donating to TU’s annual Stuff-A-Bus campaign. Donation boxes are available throughout campus; you can donate by dropping off new toys or canned goods in any of the boxes. All proceeds go to the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots Foundation and the Maryland Food Bank. You can also volunteer to man the bus at Enrollment Services—sign up here.
Did You Know?
TU is prepping for some early Thanksgiving guests—but they aren’t people. From November 23 to 26, goats from Harford County’s Harmony Farm will spend time grazing in the Glen to eat away the invasive English ivy that’s threatening tree and other natural plant growth in the area. Using the goats costs half as much as mechanical removal, and is much more effective and less environmentally harmful than chemical treatments. Not a baaa-d idea, if you ask us.
Many of you aren’t just employees, you’re also donors. Check out this heartwarming video thanking TU donors for making our work possible.
