Re: Welcome Back
Happy new year to each of you, and welcome back to second semester. I am writing with several reminders that I hope will be helpful.
Inauguration of President Sullivan
This will be a memorable semester in the life of the University with the inauguration of our new president, Teresa A. Sullivan. Please note the dates and plan to participate in many of the inauguration-related events, which will be occurring over a five-day period. The installation ceremony will take place Friday, April 15, at 3 p.m. on the Lawn (rain site: John Paul Jones Arena). More information will be available soon.
As you return to Grounds and perhaps adopt new routines for second semester, please remember to make personal safety a priority. The police and others are always here to help, but your actions and reasonable precautions are important to maintaining a safe environment for yourself and for your fellow community members. Several reminders:
Combating the Flu and other Illnesses
Flu season has arrived, and several steps can be helpful in avoiding the flu or minimizing the chance of spreading germs to others:
Although it is extremely rare for the University to cancel classes for bad weather, other activities, services (such as UTS buses), and events may be altered, postponed, or cancelled. To stay up to date on weather-related messages, please check the University’s home page or call 434-924-SNOW (7669).
In addition to the offices and resources already mentioned, please remember that you can always find help and support from the following, and as a suggestion, you may want to add these numbers to your cell phone:
Office of the Dean of Students: 434.924.7133 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays; after hours, call University Police and ask to be connected with the Dean-on-Call, who is available 24/7.
Center for Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS): 434.243.5150 for appointments; 434.972.7004 for after-hours emergencies. For more urgent needs, walk-in services are available Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
University Police: 434.924.7166 for non-emergencies and lost-and-found; 911 for emergencies.
Best wishes for a safe, healthy and successful semester. If my colleagues or I can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail or at 434.924.7984.
Patricia M. Lampkin
Vice President and Chief Student Affairs Officer
