Important Resources for Students

Monday, March 23, 2020

The following message was sent to all students on March 22, 2020, at 8:41 p.m.

As you prepare for the resumption of instruction after a tumultuous couple of weeks, we wanted to provide a summary of support resources for your quick reference. Tomorrow begins a unique chapter for us all, and we expect there could be a hiccup or two. As we navigate this experience together, we want to encourage you to be patient and flexible with yourselves, and with all of the instructors and staff who are doing their best to meet your academic, technology, and campus service needs in the midst of extensive coronavirus impacts. Continue to take good care of yourselves, and please take social distancing and other prevention recommendations seriously, wherever you are. Thank you, Seahawks. We are very glad to welcome you back, if only virtually!
