The Daily Brief

Registrar's Office 


The Registrar's Office celebrated its first Christmas holiday with our registrar, Ted Witryk, by making breakfast for about 50 people in Stratton Admin and across campus.  Ted made omelets to order, while the staff helped to serve the crowd waffles, pancakes and many other sides to round out a full meal. We just thought we would share some of the photos as it might actually become a tradition because we received so many positive comments.
