Still looking for a Field Ed site?
------------------------------------------
Are you hoping to do Field Ed in the fall? Do you still need a site?
Worried it's too late? It's not! There are about 20 sites still
looking for students for 06-07. Go onto the Field Education Website
www.ants.edu/academics/fielded. We've just updated the Open/Closed
button on each site, so you can search by still open sites. Don't give
up yet!

School Closing for Construction Issues - July 21 and 28 - NO ELECTRICAL
SERVICE
------------------------------------------
Good people:

This Friday (July 21) and next (July 28th) we will be closing the
school all day for some major electrical and plumbing work necessitated
by the construction of the Wilson Chapel.

On both days the electrical service for almost the entire campus will
be shut off. The duration of the work will be from 8:00AM until 4:00PM.
There is an outside chance the work will not take the entire time, but
you shouldn't count on it. While we are doing all this we decided to
take advantage of the moment and do some of the pending plumbing work,
which will require that we shut down water service to the campus from
about 10AM to 2PM on the 28th.

Given the scope of this, it only made sense to close the school. I'm
sorry for the inconvenience, but this couldn't be avoided. BTW - Colby,
Herrick Cricle, and Hebrew College will not be affected.

A word to the wise: It might be smart to unplug any devices that are
susceptible to power surges (computers, TV's, answering machines, etc)
if you don't have a surge protector. Refrigerators, stoves, microwaves,
etc are fine - particularly as you will want your fridge to come back on
as soon as the power returns.

In the not too distant future we will also begin some work on electric
and gas lines that will require digging in the roads in front of Fuller
and the upper portion of Herrick Road (Herrick House up past the back of
the library).

In all these things I thank you in advance for your patience and
understanding.
And enjoy the extra time off!

N.
