1. Curb COVID by Getting Vaccinated
One of the surest ways to stay protected from the COVID-19 virus is to make sure that you're vaccinated. Currently, anyone 12 years old or older has the opportunity to get a vaccine at multiple locations across the city. The Office of Health Security has compiled a list of locations where you can access the vaccine - including locations that have drop-in options and don't require an appointment.
2. Being Together and In Person
Monday, Aug. 23, not only marks the start of the Fall 2021 semester, but also a time when students, faculty, and staff will be able to physically be on campus, together, for the first time in 18 months. Last week, Chancellor Joanne Li, Ph.D., CFA, reached out to the campus community with information about what this new change looks like for employees.
3. Textbooks, Supplies Available Soon
There are only a few weeks to go until the start of the Fall 2021 semester and less than a week until textbooks go on sale, in-store and online. Beginning Monday, Aug. 2, textbooks will be available for purchase, or rental and there are now more ways than ever to access what you need to start the semester strong. Students can get a head start by accessing MavLINK to match their booklist to thier course schedule.
