Happy Sunday! Here's what's happening on-campus, in the residence halls, and virtually this week. 
Reminder about our face coverings policy! You are required wear a face covering over your mouth and nose any time you are outside of your assigned living space. This includes the hallway, taking the trash or recycling out, doing laundry, picking up food from the front lobby, etc. Additionally, when someone knocks on your door or if a staff member (Facilities, Campus Living, etc.) enters your room, it is expected that you put on a face covering and social distance until alone again.
