While last week’s winter storms gave way to warmer weather, I know many students from Texas are still struggling with the devastation your home communities encountered. Student Affairs is here to help.
As you hear from students who need to miss class due to quarantine, isolation, or public health bans, we thought it would be helpful to provide some additional guidance as to how you can work with your students.
The National Weather Service continues to forecast extremely cold weather this week, with temperatures staying below freezing and overnight lows dipping below zero degrees. With this in mind, please plan accordingly and take precautions when coming to and from campus.
We are aware of recent social activities hosted by students in violation of university and county health regulations — activities that put our community’s health at risk. As a result, we have issued 10-day public health bans to members of the following five fraternities: Delta Tau Delta, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Kappa Psi, Sigma Chi, and Sigma Phi Epsilon.
Due to the pandemic, this is no ordinary Super Bowl Sunday. With that in mind, I write to remind you to be safe and remember our shared commitment to the health and welfare of the community.
As the semester comes to an end, here are some helpful reminders about ways we can all help our students succeed.
