A message from Greg Billows
Instead of looking at what was taken from you, look what has been given to you. Most of you have gone home. Enjoy your family. Play games, cook together, go for walks, hikes, or a bike ride. Reconnect and appreciate your family or the people you are with. You will look back at this time not only with sadness for what you have lost, but hopefully with fondness of the memories you will create with the people you are with. For those of you that are still on Campus; we are your family, and you are ours. We will continue to provide for you the best that we can, and we do it with love.

A message to our community
As we acclimate to the new ways on campus, I realize so much has changed in just a few days. Some of the things that gave me the most joy, such as meeting with our students, talking with you during special events, or meeting my colleagues can no longer happen in the same way, at least for the time being. Along with my team, I wanted to think of ways to keep our connections alive, continue to show our care, and engage with our community. That being said, we are starting a new series called, Care.Connection.Community through which we will share messages with you.
Stay healthy and be well,
