The following was sent to all students on Friday, March 4, 2022.
Let’s all take a break next week. And, I dare say it is well-deserved.
I am looking forward to joining so many others as we go back in public spaces. I’ll ease in, for sure, but am looking forward to closer eye contact, surprise, better conversations, shared storytelling, and, overall, the kind of soulful interactions helped by proximity. Next week will be a good time for practice.
Some of us will travel. The travel tips we’ve received over the years are still apropos. Some of us will put together our own local jaunts – consider service opportunities nearby, sport, and a menu of possibilities.
Whatever you do, keep available testing and smart mask-wearing in your plans as you interact with others.
Take a moment to rejuvenate.
Associate Provost and Dean of Students
