Taking Time for Yourself and Flu Fairs Continue!

October 14, 2021

Dear Students,

I hope that you are able to find time to rest during this busy midterm period. 

Opportunities to Rest and Recharge
As the semester picks up its pace, consider taking advantage of the many opportunities for restorative activities happening around campus. From free yoga classes to trauma-informed song writing, there are many upcoming options.

Masking Indoors
Our COVID-19 numbers on campus remain low, due in no small part to our community’s diligence in continuing to wear masks while indoors. As our dining halls reopen this week, please remember to bring your mask and proof of vaccination for admission. To keep our community safe, everyone (vaccinated and unvaccinated) must wear a mask any time you are indoors, including dining halls, but you may remove them while actively eating.

Flu Shots Available!
Morningside students: Columbia Health is hosting free, walk-in flu vaccine events now through October 29 in the Lerner Hall/Roone Arledge auditorium, Monday through Friday during the following hours.

  • Mondays: 10:00 AM-6:00 PM
  • Tuesdays-Thursdays: 9:00 AM-5:00 PM
  • Fridays: 7:00 AM-3:00 PM

CUIMC students: Student Health on Haven is providing free flu shots, which you can schedule via the Student Health portal.

The flu shot is required for all students and the deadline to submit proof of vaccination is Tuesday, November 30. You can get your flu shot from any provider!

If you are taking part in a Columbia Flu Fair, please make sure to leave yourself enough time to account for potential wait times, which will likely increase as we approach the end of the month. And remember that if the line is too long when you stop by, you can always return at any time within the above hours.

Please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected].

Take care,
