A Word Of Thanks

Published on Tue 10/20/20

Dear Students,
 

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the 10th week of the semester. I write today with a short message – quite simply, thank you. Collectively, we have worked together and made significant progress toward our goal of offering the best education as safely as possible. As a result, academic operations today are very similar to how we began the semester. We wouldn’t be here without your help.
 

As we see COVID cases rising around the country, I encourage you to stay diligent. Please continue to wear face coverings, wash your hands, stay home if you are ill, get tested, and quarantine when you are exposed. We now have three kiosks located around campus where anyone — including non-university affiliated individuals — can get a test. 
 

The Academic Success Center and Office for Student Success remain open to assist you as you prepare for the end-of-semester exams and projects. Study space is now available in these classrooms from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Evans Library and the Business Library and Collaboration Commons both have Zoom Zones on non-quiet floors for you to use for your online classes. I encourage you to seek assistance from your instructors when needed before or after class or during their virtual office hours. 
 

Again, thank you for your work in making our campus as safe as possible during these unusual times.
 

Best wishes for our continued safety and success,
 

Carol A. Fierke
Provost and Executive Vice President
