Wishing You a Restful Fall Break

November 22, 2021

Dear Students,

As Fall break approaches, I write to pause and reflect on how deeply grateful I am to each of you. You have done incredible work to care not only for your own well-being, but also that of our entire University community and surrounding neighbors.

I hope you are able to rest, relax and renew this Fall Break and spend time with friends and loved ones. 

COVID-19 Travel and Policy Guidance: 

  • To those of you leaving town, a reminder to please take a moment to review the University’s Fall 2021 Travel Restrictions, as well as the CDC’s recommendations for holiday travel and gatherings. 
  • For additional information about accessing pre- or post-travel testing on campus, or to learn more about the timeline for updated Spring policies, you can also go here

Thank you for all that you’ve done and all that you continue to do. I wish you all a restful and safe break. 

In gratitude,
