Dear Tech Family,
Good Friday morning.
The beginning of each academic year is exciting for all of us. It serves as a new beginning for students, faculty, and staff, as we look to the future. It also serves to remind us why this institution exists – to advance educational attainment for our students, for our state, and for our nation.
Today, we begin welcoming students who live on campus to their new homes. Our Move-In Day has become a series of days, and students are required to make appointments and limit the number of people helping them move things into the dorms and apartments.
While this event and others will look different this year, we’re still focused on welcoming students to our Tech Family. We are able to give our students more individualized attention as they come to campus, and we’re still able to show our amazing Tech culture to all of them. For those returning, welcome home! For those who are new, unpack your bags and make this your home!
Culture of Caring recap
As we begin the new year, we will be re-sharing content on social media that’s focused on our Return to Campus. While we hope these reminders to wash your hands, wear your masks, practice physical distancing, and engage in other health and safety practiceshaven’t slipped off your radar, we know a refresher course on what you’ll see on campus this fall will be welcome.
Parking sticker pickup
This year, Campus Police provided the opportunity to obtain your parking stickers early by mail. Though many took advantage of the convenience, we still have too many individuals gathering at one time at the police department.
Next week, the Campus Police will move their parking sticker operations to the Thomas Assembly Center to provide more space for individuals who need to retrieve their parking stickers. We’ll share more information here when we have times and dates finalized, and students will not be ticketed for not showing a decal for the time being.
If you have any questions about purchasing a parking decal or the registration form, please contact the Traffic Office at 318.257.2921 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have attached the information required to complete for getting your parking permit.
It’s Your Education
Thank you all for your commitment to the members of our Tech Family. This weekend – if you’re not helping to move students in – I hope you can take time to reflect on the new beginnings of each academic year. There is a familiar rhythm to each year when one works in education, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take advantage of the opportunity to make change when necessary.
The COVID-19 pandemic has called each of us to be innovative and to reframe our perceptions of what the Fall Quarter can look like. It has provided the chance for us to learn new skills while maintaining our focus of delivering the best and most transformative education possible.
Best wishes for a successful Fall Quarter!
