Chancellor's Friday Letters

Three Ways to Give Thanks

Three Ways to Give Thanks

November 24, 2011

Dear Friends,

As we head into the Thanksgiving break, I hope for three things.

First, that you will find time to reflect on those people in your life that you are most thankful for, and tell them so.

Second, that whether you are by yourself, or with friends and family, you find time for some extra joy, laughter, food and beverage.

And third, because I know you recognize that there are many people who will have less to be thankful for than you, I hope you can find a way to share a warm smile, a warm meal, or a warm coat with someone in need.

My wife Karen joins me in wishing you a joyous Thanksgiving, and expressing our thanks to you for all that you do to support our students, faculty and staff, and helping enable their success in living their promise at UC Riverside.

Until my next Friday Letter on December 2, I close with warm regards.


Tim White, Chancellor
