This Week in Walker

Beans from the Dean

With the first snowfall last week and final examinations just around the corner, the fall 2018 term will soon come to a close. To celebrate our accomplishments this semester and to encourage your continued success throughout finals, I have partnered with Beans 2 Brew for Beans from the Dean, a Walker College tradition. I invite you all to stop by the second floor Broyhill Commons between 8:00 am and 10:00 am on Dec. 7 and Dec. 10-12 to enjoy a cup of coffee, on me. Good luck as you begin your final examinations, and warm wishes for a well-deserved winter break!
