President's Message

January / February 2019

To all faculty, students, and alumni:

Happy New Year!

The first semester has ended and the stress of taking and grading final exams has been lifted from the shoulders of the great student body and world class faculty we have here at Brown.  After completing the heavy workload that end of semesters present, hopefully faculty and students have had the opportunity to enjoy the holiday season relatively stress free.  

During December, the Club became a center for holiday activities, raising the sprits of members and guests, with many campus departments hosting holiday parties. The Club was transformed into Santa’s workshop for another successful annual ‘Breakfast with Santa’ with smiling children everywhere, and the Club was at full capacity for the Holiday Community Buffet luncheon.

Looking back on 2018, I reflect on some very positive changes that have taken place at the Club.  There have been several renovations or enhancements that have taken place giving the Club a new feel.  Chief among the renovations is the new Lounge, a wonderful space that has been up and running since May.  I can attest that it’s a great place to relax over a cocktail with a variety of appetizers created and prepared by our outstanding Chef and Culinary team.  The Lounge is open Tuesday through Friday from 5 to 8PM.  I hope you will make every effort to stop by. 

As you return to campus, I encourage you to keep in mind the many events that the Club will offer to ease the transition back to schooling.   The Club is a great place to come to celebrate Valentine’s Day with someone you love.  You can learn about all the upcoming events at the Brown Faculty Club on Facebook.

-- Joseph DiMartino, President of the Brown Faculty Club
