Message From Dean Horace Anderson

HoraceI hope you all had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving, and were able to spend some time with friends or family in small gatherings while remaining safe.

With the end of the semester fast approaching -- and with promising new vaccines developing -- we can see a light at the end of 2020, so let’s not let our guards down too soon.

Be well and stay safe,

Dean Anderson
