COVID-19, Residence Life, Student Life

COVID-19 Update from the President

By President Dondi Costin | April 21, 2021

Today marks the first day of final exams. For several hundred of you, this week symbolizes your final stop before donning a cap and gown next week. And, for all of you, it checks one more box on a long list of to-dos. 

Students, you may feel overwhelmed, stressed, and anxious, but remember that final exam week is a celebration of all that you have learned in this season. Shift your focus from the grade to gratefulness—choose to be grateful that you have grown in knowledge and in grit. Take breaks, stay strong, pray, and get your beauty rest. 

Thank you, Bucs, for fighting the good fight. Finish well and stay #BUCSAFE as we make our way to the first of MayWe’re almost home!
