A Week in Campus Life is your weekly information email, published on Friday’s through week 10 of each term.
Welcome to Fall 2018 UCC Students! We are so glad you are here!! Be on the lookout for the Welcome Greeters – they will be out around campus on Monday and Tuesday between 7:40-8:10am and 8:40-9:10am. In addition to campus maps, they will have RiverHawk Bucks in hand to give away. RiverHawk Bucks are good for selected drink items in the Bookstore.
Please check your schedules over the weekend to ensure you have the most current location for your classes, as some class locations may have changed. Once in class, please review your syllabus and check your finals week schedule to confirm the day you are scheduled to complete your final.
Day of Remembrance
On Monday, October 1, UCC will be holding its third Day of Remembrance to reflect on the events of Oct. 1, 2015. Governor Kate Brown has approved the campus’ request to fly the flag at half-staff. 1. A tribute to survivors and those lost will also be displayed around the campus flag pole from sunrise to sunset. A remembrance booth will be in the Student Center from 11am-Noon. Starting at 10 a.m., a private event for UCC staff and students, affected family members, and the law enforcement community will take place on the UCC campus grounds. Due to the private, sensitive nature of this event, the public and media are required to keep a respectful distance. Last year, the College created a permanent webpage called “We Will Always Remember” at www.umpqua.edu/we-remember. The page was developed to serve as a virtual memorial to acknowledge and honor those lost and affected by the events that took place on Oct. 1. The site also contains the following: Annual Day of Remembrance activities and information, photo galleries, campus and community support, information regarding on- and off-campus memorials, and links to campus and community resources.
