It is most likely that the current COVID19 response in the US and around the world is impacting every one of you, and while we are in a unique situation where you all have been doing your classes online and don't have to transition your learning platform, it is not "business as usual".
Since starting your programs with us, you've learned how to balance and manage your schedules very well, and now that is all in an upheaval. We want to let you know that we understand many more things are weighing on your minds, taking your time and attention, and requiring you to rebalance your worlds. I encourage you to maintain your programs and degree plans here, and we will do what we can to support you in that endeavor!
Previously this announcement board has been one of strictly school and registration related news, but we think it may be important to include some additional information and resources moving forward. For instance: tips and tricks to work from home; methods of managing stress; various external world resources. Not all of this is going to be fully relevant for all of our students. We hope many of you can benefit from some of this information.
Moving forward, we will be pinning the school-related announcements to the Site News page: you can find that in your Navigation menu. The occasional – my guess is not more than weekly, or bi-weekly at most – posting that is not strictly VLS or school related will be posted and roll off when the next post is published.
