Anchor Team Islanders,

You have received multiple emails about registration opening this week. Some of you may have been frustrated, anxious, and even angry after getting them. How can they can act like everything’s normal? Don’t they realize what we’re dealing with? I have too much going on to even think about registering.

I want you to know, we aren’t sending you emails to further frustrate you. We are here to help. In these uncertain times, we know how important it is to find those things we do have control over. To remind ourselves of what we can do for ourselves. And to look for hope.

We are committed to helping you complete your education and finish your degree. We know this means so much to you. By registering for classes now, it takes one task off your list of things to do and is one less thing you have to worry about. Knowing you plan to attend TAMU-CC in the summer or fall gives you something to look forward to, gives you hope for the future.

We know you are dealing with so much right now, as classes have moved online and advising is being conducted remotely. Things look very different at the moment. But what remains the same is that the Anchor Team advisors are here for you. We are here to help.

Dr. Rachel Kirk
