Student Affairs Update: Details for Returning to Campus

Friday, July 10, 2020

It’s been what feels like decades since I’ve written, but it is time for me to begin regular weekly communication with you again. Over the next few weeks, I will be sending emails each Friday with updates and expectations for a successful Fall semester. We are really looking forward to having you back on campus.
