All Day Sukkot (Multi-Day Event)
Jewish holyday: Sukkot (the Festival of the Huts) takes place 5 days after Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) and commemorates the 40 year period that the Jewish people wandered in the desert after their enslavement in Egypt, during which Moses was given the Torah on Mt. Sinai and they lived in temporary shelters. The Season of Our Rejoicing, as it is also known, is celebrated by building asukkah (hut) that Jews make their “home,” where they eat, entertain, and sometimes even sleep for the 7 day festival,in thanksgiving for G-d’s protection and the harvest.[i]  Begins at sundown the evening before.
All Day Midterm Feedback Sessions

Ever wish you could ask your students, in-semester, how things are going? Now you can with a mid-term feedback session coordinated by CTSE.

Upon your request, we'll schedule a time to visit your classroom to ask your students to give feedback on your teaching methods and their ability to learn in your class. Here are some of the questions we'll ask your students during the visit:

  1. What are the strengths of the course and the instructor that assist you in learning?
  2. What things are making it more difficult for you to learn and what suggestions do you have for improvement?
  3. What might you do personally to improve your learning in the course?
The student responses will be gathered into a confidential report. Once it's ready, we'll discuss the results with you and discuss ideas for improvement based on what they had to say. Research has shown that faculty members who conduct mid-course feedback and have a consultation raise their end-of-semester evaluations and improve learning.

Request for a feedback session by filling out this form.

Thursday, October 5
First Floor Function Room, 1-6pm
Walk-in's will be accommodated as is possible. To ensure a slot that fits your schedule, please use the link below to sign up for an appointment.

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as the recent earthquake to devastate areas of Mexico serve as a reminder of the need for a sufficient blood supply at all times, including times of disaster. Hurricane Irma forced the cancellation of approximately 80 American Red Cross blood drives resulting in more than 2,100 uncollected blood and platelet donations. Through our national inventory system, the Red Cross has the ability to move blood around the country to wherever and whenever it is needed. We encourage eligible donors in parts of the country unaffected by Hurricane Irma to give blood to help ensure a sufficient blood supply.

Sign up today to make sure there is blood on the shelves when it's needed most. Click here or visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code SuffolkLaw. Walk-in's will be accommodated, but priority will be given to appointment slots. If you would like to donate and want to ensure you are able, please follow the link to sign up.

Eligible donors with types O, B negative or A negative blood are especially needed (and encouraged to make a Power Red donation). Power Red donors give a concentrated dose of red blood cells during a single donation, allowing them to maximize their impact. To find out more click here.

Have you traveled outside the US or Europe in the past 12 months? You may not be eligible to donate. To check this and other eligibility questions call the Red Cross Donor and Client Support Center at 1-866-236-3276.
