Helping Seawolves stay on track
by Claudia Lampman |
Dear UAA Students,
I wanted to touch base with you as you head back to class on Monday after our extended Spring Break. It will take some adjustment for many of you as your faculty transition from face-to-face to alternate forms of course delivery. We have prepared a guide to help you adjust your study habits. It also has links to important campus resources. Check out the information below, check in with your professors, and take a deep breath. We will get through this together.
— Claudia Lampman, Vice Provost for Student Success
