Almanack teaser.jpgWith campus frigid and students on their way back from extraordinary New Year experiences, we share these words from our namesake and our hopes to fulfill their promise:

Be at War with Your Vices, at Peace with Your Neighbours, and Let Every New Year Find You a Better Man

- Benjamin Franklin, from the 1755 edition of “Poor Richard’s Almanac.” Complete title: “Poor Richard improved: Being an Almanack and Ephemeris of the Motions of the Sun and Moon; the True Places and Aspects of the Planets; the Rising and Setting of the Sun, And The Rising Setting and Southing of the Moon.”

Welcome back, students, faculty and staff.
