Dear campus community,
Good Monday morning.
We’re now at the mid-point for our Fall 2020 Quarter. Thank you for all your hard work in and out of the classroom. Keep it up, and finals will be here before we know it!
Advising will begin next Monday, Oct. 26. Be sure to schedule time to see your academic advisor so you will be ready to register for the Winter 2020 Quarter when your registration window opens.
COVID-19 testing continues
Remember that the Louisiana Army National Guard will conduct screening tests from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Argent Alumni Pavilion. Registering ahead of time will help speed things along. Register online at https://www.doineedacovid19test.com/Ruston_LA_1462.html and print your testing voucher ahead of time. No symptoms required!
Flu shot options
Remember that flu shots will be available in the Quad from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21. The vaccination clinic is organized by the College of Applied and Natural Sciences, and the cost for the vaccination will be $20.
TechCare will continue to offer flu shots as well. The campus health center is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and is located in the Lambright Sports and Wellness Center. If you have any questions or concerns, please call TechCare at 318.257.4866.
Take advantage of this opportunity to get your flu shot in between classes on Wednesday. It’s an easy way to help our campus community stay healthy and safe this fall and winter. More information is available online at bit.ly/TechFluShots.
Our Café Q&A this week will provide an opportunity to hear from Department of Education civil rights attorney Tokufumi Noda at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 23. Noda will present “Access for People with Disabilities to Online Programs and Resources.”
There will also be opportunities to ask questions in general or related directly to your courses. This presentation is only offered live and will not be recorded.
Ensuring our class materials are accessible for all students is an important part of our diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives. Please make plans to join the session at https://latech.zoom.us/j/5946071030.
As the weather grows cooler, it becomes even more important for us to remember our health and safety practices, including washing our hands and wearing our masks. Let’s all stay healthy and finish the quarter strong.
