Dear Graduate Theology Community,

Shhh… if you don’t say it, it isn’t true!  If we don’t say that summer’s almost over, and that the new academic year is fast approaching, then we can stay by the pool and at the beach forever, right?  If you don’t say it, it isn’t true!  😉

But just to be safe… better pencil in these important dates that are coming up quickly!  Just in case sipping margaritas on the deck has to end sometime soon!
