Campus-Submitted Announcements

Benefits Open Enrollment
1.) Benefits Tip: Flexible spending accounts allow you to set aside money for health care or dependent care through pre-tax payroll deductions
The tax savings give you more spendable money in your pocket. When you elect a health care FSA, your account is funded with preloaded dollars of your chosen amount at the beginning of the year. Your maximum contribution is $2,500 a year. If you choose a dependent care FSA, you can contribute up to $5,000 a year through monthly payroll deductions. FSA funds do not roll over from one calendar year to the next and they are not returned to you, so plan carefully to set aside just what you need. Learn more at Chard Snyder. Open Enrollment ends Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 5 p.m. Go to the Open Enrollment website for information and to make your selections.

Events

Mondays – Fridays 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Oct. 28 Room 125 Studio Arts/HPES/Thrust Theater

“Monsieur Baptiste, the Con Man” is the tale of a religious conman who infiltrates a wealthy household until his lustful passions for the lady of the house are exposed by the prayerful workings of a voodoo priestess. The play is set in 19th century Haiti where the “gens de couleur libres” — free people of color — engage in a raucous battle of wealth and status. Performances will be Nov. 20 – 22, 8 p.m., Nov. 23, 2 p.m., Nov. 24, 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Kicking off its 20th Anniversary, this AATP production is lavishly adapted from Tartuffe.
