Welcome back, Gusties! This fall, so many members of our community did a great job of maintaining physical distancing, following mask guidelines, reporting symptoms, and complying with isolation/quarantine procedures. As we look ahead to the continued rollout of the vaccine, let’s recommit to these behaviors as we begin spring semester. Remember, the College is in a “Lay Low” phase for the first two weeks of the semester. Wherever you are throughout the springin the classroom, the cafeteria, or in our residence hallsplease do your part to help keep our community safe. Gusties ROAR!
