Monday, Jan. 11

We are just about a week away from the start of Spring Semester! I hope you have been able to rest and recharge during Winter Break. I also hope you are looking forward to the upcoming semester as much as I am.

We have many great opportunities not only for your education but also for a lot of fun planned for the semester. You can check out our upcoming events and engagement opportunities. Spring Semester registration is still open, and if you need account holds cleared, please reach out to your academic advisor.

I hope you will join me at noon on Friday, Jan. 15 at noon for our Eccles Spring Welcome event for all incoming and returning students. It will include an opportunity drawing and information about how to navigate your Eccles Experience this spring. You can register here.

Enjoy your last week of Winter Break, and please engage with the many excellent events happening during the University of Utah’s MLK Week commemoration starting on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 18.

We’ll see you back in classes starting next Tuesday.

Dear Eccles School Students,

Congratulations on making it through the many challenges 2020 presented, and welcome to a new year!

I am looking forward to welcoming you back for Spring Semester on Jan. 19, and we have a lot of great opportunities not only to further your formal education but also to engage socially and continue to make friends and build your networks.

If you haven’t yet registered for classes, please do so as the schedule is open and available. If you have any holds on your records or issues registering, please reach out to your Academic Advisor. We’re here to support your success.

I hope your holidays were filled with friends, family, and lots of new memories made. Here’s to an amazing 2021!

Best,
Taylor
