Food Pantry
Dear Community Members,

As you know we keep a small food pantry in Sturtevant Hall (on the left
as you enter the student lounge area). This can be very helpful to
many of our students, particularly during the summer months when they
don't have the meal plan. Please remember to bring items for the
pantry from time to time (non-perishable only, please), as you are
able. I know those who need this assistance appreciate it very much.

Thank you,


Nancy Nienhuis
Dean of Students and Community Life

Are You Struggling?
Dear Students,

If you are having a rough time making ends meet, buying groceries and
so forth, please let me know. I will keep our conversations
confidential but I want to insure that none of you goes hungry. We are
going to try to keep the food pantry well stocked for those of you who
need this assistance, but if you are still struggling, I want to know!
Please talk to me. There are many ways for me to assist you.
