Hello Grebel students!
I'm happy to be thinking about Spring term and the arrival of you all! We are gearing up to warmly welcome 50 residents and about 14 apartment dwellers to a fabulous Spring term at Grebel.
Isaac Painting, your Spring Student Council President and his leadership team along with the dons have begun to make plans to ensure you all settle-in and bond quickly. There will be lots for you to participate in, including regular chapel and community suppers.
Speaking of Chapel… would any of you be interested in working with Ed Janzen as volunteers on the Chapel leadership team? If so, please email Ed as quickly as possible.
Your Spring Dons are Adam Neufeld, Josh Rampersad and Mary McPhee. The apartment superintendent for Spring is Sarah Odinotski.
All the best as you finish up your terms of work and study.
Mary Brubaker-Zehr, Director of Student Services

Welcome from Isaac Painting - StuCo President
I hope this winter term is treating all y'all well whether you're in school, or on co-op, or traveling, or doing something else! :)
The spring term StuCo and LLT are super stoked for you guys to come back and are already starting to look at how to make this term stupendous for you.
We realize that the renovations are going to be something that we need to work around, but I think we can construct a pretty great summer anyway.
I'm already looking forward to setting new foundations with old friends and building upon the old ones. We're going to do our best to keep the construction from
throwing a wrench in our great summer plans.
But basically, get pumped, because this summer is gonna be full of veebs, bond-fires, study cafe's, dances, talent shows, and whatever else you want it to be!
Isaac Painting, 2020 Spring Term President
