ANNOUNCEMENTS AND REMINDERS
If you experience symptoms or have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19, please get tested. Testing for symptomatic or exposed students will be at Coleman Coliseum Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Schedule a student appointment at Coleman. Bring your health insurance card, ACT Card, CWID and driver’s license. Students without health insurance will be assessed on a case-by-case basis, but the goal is not to turn any students away if testing is warranted.
The Student Health Center and Pharmacy will be closed Saturday, Oct. 3, but will reopen Sunday, Oct. 4, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Telemedicine visits are encouraged, and students should call 205-348-2778 or 205-348-0386 for an appointment. No drive-thru COVID-19 testing will be held.
Spring Schedule Coming Oct. 9, Registration Oct. 26
A goal for the 2021 Spring Semester is to further improve the educational experience while continuing to maintain safety measures as recommended by the CDC. UA will open additional classrooms, adding plexiglass to further increase the seating capacity of existing classrooms, and maximizing the use of classrooms across the entirety of the day to provide as many face-to-face learning opportunities as possible. Plans include a greater number of hybrid sections with a combination of in-classroom and live videoconferencing instruction. Colleges and academic departments are continuing to revise planned courses, and the spring schedule of classes will be released Friday, Oct. 9. Registration begins Oct. 26.
The application period for UA’s Premier Awards has opened, and the University Awards Committee welcomes applications for the six awards, the highest honors given at the Capstone. The deadline to submit a nomination is Nov. 1, and the deadline for applications is Nov. 15. Direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Avoid large gatherings to help curb the spread of coronavirus. Some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus. Practice social distancing by keeping at least 6 feet — about two arm lengths (or an elephant’s trunk!) — away from others.
