Changes

Student Center Update:

Our librarian and front desk assistant, Debra, is leaving us. She has done an outstanding job for us and we hope everyone will extend their thanks and well wishes to her. Her final day will be June 17th. 

As for the status of the student center/library upstairs in the Emergency Services building: effective immediately we will no longer host a library. All books will be returning to the main campus library. We are in the process of finding part time help to assist students but please bear with us. The Student Center will have limited hours and I will post those when I can. As for the computers, students will still be able to use the Student Center as a study area and for computer use.

Thank you for your patience as we get this figured out and again a big thank you to Debra for all her hard work.


As for appointments:

If at all possible we need students to make an appointment. We can handle walk-ins but it becomes difficult when schedules are already filled. Also, each student needs to make a separate appointment rather than one appointment for several students. Appointments can be done in person or over the phone. As for me (Mary Ellis) I can advise via email and encourage my students to use my email for quick questions. You can reach advising by emailing emsa@uvu.edu, my email at mellis@uvu.edu, or Bonnie Lamb at bonnie.lamb@uvu.edu.

Thank you for your patience and as always we are here to help. If you have questions on any of the changes happening please feel free to email.
