Dear T-birds,

Hope you all are having a great weekend!

I know with finals coming up most of you are busy accounting your courses and figuring out an efficient process control system to better finance your grades. Okay, bad jokes apart, I wish you guys all the best for the finals! Know that all of you are AWESOME and I’m sure all of you will do really well in your finals.

Here’s a brief update on what’s past us, and what we should look forward to:

Note from the organizers of the Travis Richardson Family Relief Fund: As most of you already know our good friend and fellow T-bird Travis Richardson was badly injured during a rugby match last weekend. A few of his close friends have started a Travis Richardson Family Relief Fund. This is when all of us, members of the T-bird family, help each other out. Please use the link to the PayPal account and make your donations.

Student Contest Announcement: We are in the final stages of formulating the student contest and it looks exciting!! We will be announcing the entire details of the contest on Friday the 18th of October. Be there to find out more about the contest!!

Ask TSG update: We are really happy to announce that we have had 43 Ask TSG requests and we have managed to close 37 of them! The 6 issues that are still open are long term issues and we will continue to work on it. I want to thank my team who have been amazing in addressing every concern on campus. Kudos to the them! The list of issues and their status will be posted on the bulletin board inside the commons in the coming week. This board will also serve as the official TSG bulletin board.

Reload your Dining Card: There have been some questions about how to add more funds to your dining card. The Meal Plan that is setup in tandem with the housing plan allows for $695 for the trimester. This is not intended to provide students with 3 meals a days. It provides for about $6/day, or one meal, depending on how students eat. Meal cards can be reloaded by logging into MTB ->Sitemap ->Chartwells. The link that students can go to is www.dineoncampus.com/thunderbird.

As always, for any concerns please reach out to me at nagarajuabhishek@global.t-bird.edu
