The University Turns Into Summer Camp

Thursday and Friday are Fall Break, and the students have all left campus.

We (and, I would suppose all academic and administrative units) have been invited to put our Department Motto on a fabric banner ("no larger than a twin bed sheet") and to display it at the "Faculty/Staff Fall Festival" this Friday. Do you think that the organizers of this event are taking it seriously? Or do they believe that the true opportunities for team-building and Department Spirit come from us banding together to mock it?
