Today's Update: Thursday, March 12

March 12, 2020

Dear Student Life Team: 

We knew this was a rapidly changing situation, and we are certainly seeing that today. If you haven’t yet seen this afternoon’s message from President Drake, you can read it online.   

I won’t try to outline all the new information in tonight’s email, but ask that you join me and my colleagues for a videoconference information session tomorrow, Friday, March 13, from 1-2:15 p.m. We will use Zoom as our online meeting platform.  

You can access it through your desktop or mobile device using this link:  

You can learn more about Zoom online:

You can also gather at one of several locations on campus set up to accommodate groups of people while maintaining social distancing. The locations are: The U.S. Bank Conference Theater in the Ohio Union, RPAC meeting rooms 1-3, Curl Viewpoint and Younkin 150.  

We will have updates on our plans, and do our best to answer questions (at least so far as answers are available). You can ask questions through the Q&A button on the lower right-hand corner of your screen in Zoom.  

Once again, I want you to know how proud I am of you for your resilience and patience in these difficult times. 

All my best to you,
