First, why is this newsletter called The Pink Flamingo, you might ask? Students who have visited faculty offices in the C Wing already know the answer. For those of you who haven’t seen the pink plastic “lawn ornaments” outside the offices of Drs. Gurung, Martin, L. Noppe, Von Dras, and Wilson-Doenges, come up and take a look. How do these beautifully dressed/decorated creatures appear? Some suspect Twila, our Academic Department Associate. Some think it’s Dr. Gurung, who, as always, in turn blames Dr. Martin. Some even suspect it’s a poltergeist (maybe, more accurately, a “poultry”-geist), but no one knows for sure. Actually, it all started when Dr. Illene Noppe asked her son for a pink flamingo for Mother’s Day…. Want to know more? You’ll have to wait for the next issue of The Pink Flamingo.
