Congratulations on completing the Fall 2020 semester! You should be extremely proud of yourself for making it through the past several months! I hope you gained subject knowledge, but I also hoped you learned a little about yourself and how you will apply what you learned in the classroom to your life and your future career. Because ultimately, that is what we want for you. We want you to be able to take your education out into the community, beyond this campus, and use it. Put what you have learned into action, in whatever way that makes sense to you, your life and your career. Enjoy your holiday break and we look forward to welcoming you back in the spring!
