Continued Encouragement, Summer Scholars & Stream Pictures

Good Morning,

This morning I just want to encourage you toward the finish line.  

I know that many of you are struggling with the challenges of the present.  You can do this.  Hang in there, take it assessment by assessment, exam by exam, project by project, day by day.  One day at a time.  Please stay in close contact with your FIRE Research Educator and let them know how they can support you academically and personally at this challenging time.

Please remember to consider the newly designed FIRE Summer Scholars opportunity.  You have until May 20 to sign up but the earlier we know to expect you, the better we can plan.

Oh!  And, we finally have your stream pictures on the website!

We are hard at work considering all options and contingencies for the fall.  We look forward to seeing you then, as well.

Thank you, and please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
