Adopt these behaviors on campus and in the community for a successful Fall 2020 Semester: wear a face covering, physically distance 6 feet (2 meters) apart, wash and/or sanitize your hands often and stay home if you are ill. 


The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs is open daily (Monday - Friday) from 8:00a - 5:00p.  We are closed for lunch from Noon - 1:00p.
