Today is Monday (Day 1) of the fourth week, and the weather here in Allentown is finally getting to that "perfect Fall" setting. Yet I think some of you may be worried about family or friends on the west coast, where the devastating wildfires have devastated communities, and are still burning. I've checked in with friends, who are fortunately safe. If there is anything you know I/we can do, please share. I think the hardest thing is to watch and not know what to do. Remember that counseling services from the College are available to you, even if you are a remote student.
Schedule for today
5pm: seminar on strategies for reading and note taking from The Academic Resource Center (sounds perfect for these courses!); there is a repeat tomorrow at 6pm.
This week there is a reflection assignment or option to give feedback (please! tell me what you need for your course to work!) for all of you, but this one is giving me second thoughts about agreeing to suggestions for Zoom lectures. (I'm not sure your furniture can handle this from an adult!)
"And when you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss gazes back," as Nietschze said, but this doesn't look too bad at all!
