Students: Submit by 5 p.m. Friday for a Chance to Win

To Our Students:

The more of you who are vaccinated, the safer we all will be.

Over the past month, just over 40 percent of you have uploaded photographs of your vaccination cards—a solid proportion, but not sufficient for us to be able to lift campus COVID-19 protocols.

So we’re setting a deadline—specifically, 5 p.m. this Friday (June 4).

If you meet it, you’re eligible to win your choice of the following*:

  • A Barnes & Noble credit of up to $500 for textbooks


  • $500

Two winners—one undergraduate and one graduate or professional student—will be selected randomly from among those who have verified their vaccination status by the deadline.

Why are we offering this incentive? Because we need to know how many of you (and our faculty and staff) have been vaccinated to plan responsibly for the fall. And, to be honest, we prefer to achieve that goal without instituting a requirement—after all, we’ve had so many of those in the past year.

If you haven’t already, please submit your vaccination card pictures this week. For step-by-step instructions, visit our COVID-19 website.

Winners will be announced Monday (June 7).
