It's possible that sometime before daffodils appear in Van Landingham Glen, the University could close due to inclement weather. (Maybe really soon!)

Effective January 26, 2014, the Postal Service will increase prices for all of its Mailing and Shipping Services. Price changes will affect the full range of Postal products; all classes of mail will experience an increase. The price of stamps will go up 3¢, to 49¢ each.
All those 49ers4Life banners, yard signs, posters and flyers on campus indicate that Tuesday’s blood drive is a pretty big deal. That's because IT IS. More than 30 student groups and campus departments are working toward the goal of collecting 1,000 pints of blood at a time of year when it’s most needed. (And yes, while we’re at it, snagging the North Carolina collegiate record for most pints would be pretty sweet, too.)
The end of December is typically a time to reflect on events of the past year and consider what we would like to do better in the upcoming year. That’s what New Year’s resolutions are all about. As you ponder your resolution list, will you consider starting 2014 with a commitment to give a gift that gives life, and gives life, and gives life?
That repetition was not a typo. Donating just one pint of blood can help save the lives of up to three people!

It's probably going to be very quiet on campus next week but if you plan to be around after Tuesday, here's what will be open.

The North Carolina tax reform bill (H998) Session Law 2013-316, repeals the exemption in G.S. 105-164.13(27) on “meals and food products served to students in dining rooms regularly operated by State or private educational institutions or student organizations thereof,” effective January 1, 2014.
Last year, PaTS posted an article about how permit proceeds from that academic year were spent. The bottom line was that in the 2012 fiscal year, permit sales income (which includes all student, faculty and staff permits) was $6.5 million dollars. No question, that’s a lot of money!
