    Vote

    Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Wed, 10/28/2020 - 4:36pm

    Dear students, faculty and staff members,

    Election Day is this Tuesday, Nov. 3. Every four years, American voters hold in their hands the most sacred and precious responsibility a democracy affords – a ballot.

    If you took advantage of early voting opportunities, thank you. If your plan is to vote in person on Tuesday, please do so. The University will announce soon what it’s doing to ensure you have time to make your voice heard and your vote count.

    Welcome Back!

    Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Mon, 08/17/2020 - 3:09pm

    Dear students,

    I hope your fall semester is off to a great start!

    Mine is. I spent this morning among my favorite people as I helped greet you and other returning students, faculty and staff members along Rex Street and St. Mary Boulevard.

    This welcome back event is something we do at the start of every academic year, and it’s always filled with excitement, energy and a sense of anticipation about all the incredible opportunities a new semester holds. This morning was no exception.

    We’re Prepared for Your Safe Return

    Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Tue, 07/28/2020 - 9:08am

    Dear students,

    The Fall 2020 semester begins Aug. 17, and we’re looking forward to welcoming you back.

    We’ve used the past few months to prepare for your homecoming. Our extensive and careful planning reflects the unwavering priority we place on your health and safety.

    Some of you will return physically to campus to take classes or to live in residence halls. Others have enrolled in remote and online courses that empower you to select what instruction option best fits your needs.
