Campus Update – Coming Back to Campus
Dear Tech Family,
Good Tuesday morning.
We are beginning to see more students on campus as the Fall Quarter ramps up, and we can all feel the excitement that comes with the start of a new academic year!
I am hopeful this year will be more “normal” for our campus community, but it will take all of us working together to ensure that happens. As we come back to campus, I expect that our students, faculty, and staff will continue to practice the behaviors that will help keep us safe and healthy – and ensure we can all continue to gather in person. We must not become lax in working to ensure that we follow these measures:
- Wearing your mask or face covering consistently while indoors.
- Washing your hands regularly.
- Staying home when you’re sick.
As you’ll remember, discipline through the Student Code of Conduct or personnel action will be used to enforce these requirements.
Our students will be moving into on-campus housing in a matter of days. Some have begun to move in early as their homes and communities have been impacted by Hurricane Ida. I know that so many of our students are from the Ida-impacted area. If impacted, we will work with you to get you accommodated in housing and classes. Please reach out early.
As an additional safety precaution to minimize the potential impacts of COVID-19 on our plans to have a full face-to-face campus experience for students, we’re strongly encouraging our on-campus residential students to provide one of the following pieces of documentation before moving in:
- proof of COVID-19 vaccination,
- proof of positive COVID-19 test within the last 90 days (that would negate testing), or
- proof of negative COVID-19 test within the last FIVE days before check-in.
Our students are doing their part to help continue our return to normal, and we all need to chip in.
Our partners with the Louisiana Army National Guard will provide free COVID-19 testing from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday (except Labor Day) at the Ropp Center. They will also be offering vaccinations at the Ropp soon; watch your campus email and Louisiana Tech University social media accounts for more information.
This site is open for students, faculty, staff, and area residents who want to get tested or receive the vaccine. Students who get their vaccinations are eligible for the Shot for $100 and Get Your Shot to Win Big incentive programs.
Get Your Shot
Speaking of the Louisiana Tech student incentive program, this week we’ll be awarding a BIG prize. If you are eligible to enter, do it today so that you’ll be eligible for tomorrow’s drawing!
