Mustangs and families,

Guess what?

We’re a little more than a month away from welcoming you back to the Hilltop for the fall semester. As you prepare to start or resume your studies, we want to give you a good idea of what our campus will look like in light of COVID-19.

Starting today, you’ll receive this newsletter once a week. It will include the latest campus updates, resources and frequently asked questions. Each newsletter will also highlight one specific topic that you’ll want to learn more about before coming to campus. This week’s topic is: In maintaining a healthy campus, what exactly do we mean by enhanced cleaning protocols?

This newsletter will echo information you’ll see in a new Canvas course coming soon that students must take before starting classes this fall, so it’s a great way to get a jump start on what you need to know. Please share with your parents as well so they’ll be able to help you get ready.

Be on the lookout for Mustang Strong each Tuesday, and visit our refreshed COVID-19 website at
