SIG PRINCETON 2014
Parent Weekly Newsletter #1
From Leslie Patient - Site Director
From Joanne Deacon and Kheshana Woods - Academic Deans
From Sean Duff - Residential Dean
"Welcome to Whitman College(AKA the Castle)" is the phrase that greeted all students that first arrived on Sunday to SIG. Students are adjusting quickly to life here on Campus as your middle and high school age kids get the full college dormitory experience. Examples include roommates, three meals a day at the dining hall (with lots of ice cream eating), new friends, and great fun experiences in the quad!
We had our first fire drill and it went super smooth with House Wagner and House Fuller winning the prize for best girls and boys houses. Safety is always our first priority for all your kids and they showed why they are all gifted by doing an awesome job.
So far, we have had an amazing residential community and things are running smooth. I know many of you miss your kids, but they are safe and having a great time.
From Wade Thomas - Student Activities Dean
Our first recreation hour was a hit, with basketball, soccer, yoga, and arts and crafts being some of the more popular activities. Senior privileges will start this Thursday, and students in ages 15-17 will have some more freedom and opportunities during recreation hour.
This coming weekend will be our first Saturday trip to the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia along with a trip to a mall for some afternoon shopping. Our popular and competitive Brain Bowl activity will be on Friday night. Our students can flex their brain power as they compete with one another at answering challenging questions.
