Attend the Adelbert Hall Open House Dec. 16

President Barbara R. Snyder and Provost William A. “Bud” Baeslack cordially invite faculty and staff to the annual Adelbert Hall Open House Friday, Dec. 16.

This year will mark the 10th time President Snyder has hosted the campus event (and the ninth for Provost Baeslack), which features a wide variety of food and drink on several floors. Fruit and cheese, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and all manner of sweets—cakes, pastries, and lots of items featuring chocolate—are provided. The open house gives the campus community an opportunity to come together in a festive atmosphere before the semester ends on Wednesday, Dec. 21.

Typically several hundred people attend at least some part of the event, even if only as a brief respite from grading and other end-of-the-year obligations.

To assist the event’s planners in ordering enough food and drink, those planning to attend are asked to RSVP by emailing by Wednesday, Dec. 7.

The open house runs from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 16.
