It is a beautiful day here on campus. The highs were in the upper 70s, which made it feel a lot more like May than June. The hot temperatures will come soon enough, so we’ll enjoy it while we can.

I’ve had a number of rising sophomores and juniors ask me about wanting to make changes to their fall schedule. Registration will reopen for rising upperclassmen later in August (see here).
