The semester’s end is visible. Students are into their academic pursuits intensely at this time, with projects, papers, tests, and research approaching a peak. The stress level is high and your welcome at Thanksgiving will be most appreciated by some very tired, hard-working young people. Please check to see that they have registered for Spring classes. The longer they wait the more difficult it will be to get the class times they want. Some students think they can register over the internet from home in December, and they can. We suggest, however, that they talk in person to their advisor and get some assistance.
Upcoming campus milestones include the start of Thanksgiving Break on Wednesday Nov. 21, so the last day of classes that week will be Tuesday, Nov. 20. The students will return to one more week of classes, then finals are Monday-Friday, Dec. 3-7. The Honors Graduation Breakfast and Commencement will be on Saturday, Dec. 8.
Feel free to send care packages to your students or deliver them. They are in the last phase of the semester.
The staff will be here throughout the break between semesters. We are here to help your student register, secure their financial aid and housing, and assist in any way we can to get their Spring semester started. We don’t vacation so feel free to call and visit.
