Severe Weather Test (aka tornado drill) is tomorrow at 10:00 AM!
Prior to the drill, review the severe weather procedures and the shelter locations for the buildings you frequently use. All departments, classes and residence halls are requested and strongly encouraged to participate, and for classes or labs that cannot be interrupted to participate in the drill, it is requested that instructors pause when the exercise begins and review the procedures the class is to follow in the event of an actual tornado warning. The total drill should last no more than 15 minutes.
Deadline to ORDER REGALIA for spring commencement is Friday, March 9! I look forward to seeing you there!
