Keeping Bobcats Informed, Oct. 19, 2022

Published: October 19, 2022 Author: Staff reports

Bobcat Parents & Families,

It's hard to believe we are already at midterm exam time! This is a good time for students to connect with tutors, the writing center, supplemental instructors, and other academic resources before the semester keeps moving and we get into the November rush for those services.

Additionally, academic advising for the spring semester is already underway. Encourage your student to plan early and register on time to ensure they get into the courses they want and are building toward their graduation goals. Our Bobcats continue to impress me every day with their motivation and hard work--I can't wait to see what the future holds for them!

Watch what you wear
