A Web of Connection

Dear Students,

Today is March 51st.

Just kidding, I know it's April 20th per the Julian calendar, but March seemed like a month that didn't want to end so I've just continued it.

I'm going to keep it short and sweet this week and ask you to check on 5 people. They could be friends, they could be classmates that you haven't talked to since before Spring Break, or new members in your student org. Or even a staff or faculty member you haven't heard from in a while. Whoever they are, see how they're doing, and let them know you care about their wellbeing – then encourage them to check on 5 more people. A quick text or even an old-fashioned phone call can make a huge difference in someone's day. Let's create a web of connection within the college.

I hope you have a wonderful, productive week, and I'll talk to you again next week, on March 58th.

Best,
Dr. Vanden Bout
