Students are still able to call, email, or even set up an appointment time with me to do a video call via Zoom. Thank you all for everything that you do for us and your students and please stay healthy and safe during this time. BEAR DOWN.

From Our Rep at Utah State University:
In the Aggie family, we take care of each other - especially when times get hard. For this reason, USU is extending our academic scholarship deadline for new students. Our new deadline is June 1, 2020.
If students have already been admitted to USU, we will take updated transcripts and test scores. If they qualify for a higher academic award, we will update their scholarship.
The Admissions Office will also be hosting a series of virtual events entitled What’s Next Wednesdays. These events are tailored towards incoming freshman, regardless of where they choose to attend USU. If you will please share this link with your students and parents, we would appreciate it
We hope you are all healthy and safe. Registration for fall semester is now open, so we are encouraging students to continue through orientation modules.
Stay safe! Go Aggies!
