UW Weekend

Friday I took a sneak peek at the Ross and Hawkes remodel.  Be ready to be impressed when it is finished - it is beautiful! Kudos to Campus Life!  This weekend was the annual UW-Superior weekend at the UW-Wisconsin Badger game.  President Reilly hosts a pre-game lunch followed by the game (at which, of course, Purdue was trounced).  It is fun to do the "jump around" with the students at the start of the 4th quarter and to see the band perform in the "fifth" quarter.  Photo of the attending group at Brittingham house attached.

Tornado

One year after the flood, we had a tornado, well an imaginary one anyway.  This afternoon was spent in conjunction with the city and the county in a table-top exercise and test of our emergency response. In the exercise, an imaginary tornado blew out windows in Ross and Hawkes, power was out, and we had to work with community partners including the Red Cross and Superior Power Water and Light on how to handle the aftermath.  We certainly had learned some valuable lessons from the flood that we were ready to apply!
