SIU Students: 

Thank you for a great start to the fall semester. It’s terrific to see everyone wearing masks and taking steps to protect the health and safety of our campus and community. Keep up the good work! 

As we approach the weekend, I remind you to avoid parties and other large gatherings that can be breeding grounds for COVID-19. While we want you to have fun while you are here, we do not want you to do so at the expense of your health and the health of those around you. 

Again, thank you for staying safe and doing your part. 

Go Dawgs!
