Systems Librarian Brenda Breezeel checks oil for a student.

I usually check chapel announcements on Pipeline daily to know what is happening on campus. There were only four today, but they blessed me because of the messages they conveyed. They follow:

  • Students, take your cars to the GAC parking lot today or tomorrow (weather permitting) between 3 and 6 p.m. where faculty and staff will help you check tires, oil and other basics before you drive home for Thanksgiving break.
  • The Red Cross blood drive will continue through Thursday. The donor coaches will be parked in the Benson parking lot and will be open from 1-7 p.m.
  • Chi Kappa Rho, Phi Kappa Delta and GATA invite all who are interested in Spring Sing to attend an interest meeting today in McInteer 150 from 4-5:30 p.m.
  • The SA invites you to a prayer service, which will focus on those suffering after the Paris attack. Join them at 11 p.m. tonight in the McInteer Rotunda.

It is great to know that faculty and staff at the University where I work care enough about students to help them get their vehicles ready for their trips home for the upcoming holiday. As a Red Cross blood donor as a student, it is good to see this tradition of helping others continues today. Spring Sing plans are beginning where students will give their winnings to help organizations they believe in. And people suffering elsewhere are not forgotten with a prayer service for Paris.

Sometimes with all the bad in this world we read about daily, it’s nice to be reminded, even through chapel announcements, our University is still serving, helping, giving and praying.
