Holiday Break

As you prepare for the holiday break, I wish all of you time to rest and relax before next semester. We plan to begin the semester, as we did in the fall, with a blend of online and face-to-face classes for labs and hands-on classes. Watch the website for any updates before the semester begins.

Days of Kindness

I also wanted to share that the Alpha Mu Beta service chapter of the Student Government Association is challenging everyone to 25 Days of Kindness which began December 1. The AMB President Annalena Tavares said, “we hope to develop this beyond just the holidays to encourage people to be kind year-round!” What a wonderful idea from Annalena and AMB to share random acts of kindness! Here is the Alpha Mu Beta Instagram post if you would like to participate.

No Small Acts

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.”

Scott Adams

More than anything, this pandemic has shown me how much more kindness we can give and how appreciative we are for each other. Let’s create that ripple effect.

I hope your holidays are healthy and happy!

Take care and stay safe!

Warm regards,

Dr. Janet Spriggs
