DUE “Out and About”

By Fran Marrone, Senior Administrative Assistant, DUE

This past fall/winter DUE hosted two well-attended events the first of which was held on Tuesday, November 13th. Our DUE Community attended a “welcome” celebration when the new DUE Headquarters officially opened the doors to its new home at 7 – 133 and 7 -139. The new headquarters brings together the Dean’s Office, Human Resources, Communications, and Finance and Administration. By happy coincidence, the new DUE-HQ carries on the tradition of the former UESA, Undergraduate Education and Student Affairs, when Dean Rosalind Williams and her staff called the location home.

Next DUE was happy to host its year-end celebration at the Cambridge Marriott Hotel on the evening of Monday December 10th. The well-attended reception offered an opportunity for the DUE community to mix, mingle and share some good cheer with other colleagues and their guests.

D.J.s Xiao Wei Chen “09 and Byron Hsu ‘09 spun music as guests danced away. Gift certificates from vendors such as Bertucci’s Restaurant, the Cambridge Marriott Hotel, the Boston Bruins, Royal East Restaurant and Legal Seafood were donated as prizes. Raffle winners included Justin Riley, Gen Filiault, Heidi Demers, Karl Reid, Karina Vielma, Chuck Shubert, Lan Wang, Debbie Riparo, Sekazi Mtingwa, Jeanne Hillery, Emily Bassett, Judy Leonard, Jason Schumaker Violeta Ivanova, Susan Wilson, Leo McGonagle, Lori Breslow, and Dan Marshall.

A year in the life of DUE moves so quickly that plans are already underway for Holiday Party 08.
