Beginning Monday, Aug 6, 2018, the Department of Public Safety will be conducting an update of student, staff and faculty mobile phone numbers in the campus alert system.
In an emergency, the fastest and most effective way for the university to reach you is via text message to your cell phone. Campus Alerts are sent for critical life safety information or for immediate timely emergency information to help you take proactive actions.
You may have up to three mobile SMS numbers (partner, spouse, family member, etc) who will also receive Campus Alerts when you do. Please ensure your phone numbers are correct to limit Campus Alerts being sent to the wrong numbers. These fields are for mobile phones only—please no landline numbers.
HRE is currently seeking support from university students, staff and faculty to serve on UCrew, our group of volunteers who help students move into their rooms. Move-in is Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018, and UCrew shifts are from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. or 12-4 p.m. Signup is easy—just head to our UCrew page. Are you a leader or member of a club or organization?
If you get 75 percent participation from your members, you’ll receive a free event room rental at the Peter Heritage Center. Not only is this a great opportunity to connect with students, but you’ll also receive a free meal, free shirt and maybe even get to hang out with Swoop.
As the fall semester approaches, it is worth remembering that as with all great endeavors, sustainability begins with thoughtful and sustained action by each of us—as educators, as scholars and as citizens.
Utah’s eighth-place finish marks a return to the gymnastics academic top 10 for the Utes, who finished in the top five from 2012-16, including a first-place finish in 2014. It is the second national academic citation for the Utes this summer. Utah was also a recipient of the NCAA Public Recognition Award for placing in the top 10 percent of all gymnastics teams in the latest Academic Progress Rate report.
“We take a great deal of pride in achieving at the highest level, not only on the competitive floor but in the classroom,” said Ute co-head coach Tom Farden. “Finishing eighth in the academic national standings shows the exceptional commitment our gymnasts make to being well-rounded student-athletes.”
Eight members of Utah’s 2018 NCAA Super Six team earned WCGA Scholastic All-America awards: Alexia Burch, Erika Muhaw, Kim Tessen, Maddy Stover, Missy Reinstadtler, MyKayla Skinner, Shannon Mcnatt and Sydney Soloski. The WCGA was previously known as the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches/Women).
We are soliciting donations of books, DVDs, CDs, Blu-ray, video games, board games or any other type of physical media.
