Today's update: Words to live by

Sept. 22, 2021

Words to live by, as a community

vikings take care

It IS on all of us:

• To protect ourselves and look out for others.
• To either be vaccinated or tested.
• To report to Public Safety if feeling ill.
• To wear masks inside all public spaces (and this means hallways, too.)

Please note: Students who are not fully vaccinated and who have not taken part in testing should expect to hear from the Dean of Students. Disciplinary actions will be enforced. 

Free Mask Monday: Three times this semester President Steve Bahls and Jane Bahls will be distributing free masks to students and employees. The first Free Mask Monday is this coming Monday, Sept. 27, at 10 a.m. in the Brew.

Printable flyers to support It Is On All of Us are available for download:
