Thank you to the wonderful staff of the Health Center. I arrived this morning to have my glasses repaired. I arrived and saw many staff from various departments outside getting ready for the day. Every one practiced social distancing and wore masks and gloves. Great job.
Community and self-care are evidence-based strategies that increase student success and thriving. Join us Five Points Yoga to dig deep, build lasting community, and leave with a holistic self-care plan based on the self-care wheel and yoga philosophy.

The staff and the doctors know what they doing. I feel a lot better already.
Any dates on the Graduate Student Support Group for this semester?
