There’s a Light at the End of the Yellow Brick Road
It’s coming from a neon sign that’s screaming “We’ve come too far to blow it now.” We get it (we swear we always have) — people are sick of restrictions, pandemics and this newsletter. But the weather is getting nicer and people are understandably letting their guard down. Don’t. We’re almost there, and our spring could be the same color as the pollen that’s coming for you.

Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster and Convenient Parking on Campus
Is yellow status also just another urban legend? And if the numbers are down, what exactly are we waiting for? Because premature celebration is a recipe for disaster. We’re playing it safe and not opening up too soon because we want to be sure, and we want to have our best shot at actually staying in yellow for a long time.

Your Weekly Broken Record
Wear a mask. Distance. Wash your hands. The difference these simple actions can make is only rivaled by how annoying it must be to hear about it again and again. Keep indoor gatherings to 10 people or less, outdoor to 25 or less, and when in doubt, mask up.

Things are Lightening Up
Again, thanks to a lot of sacrifice and good judgement, we’re knocking on yellow’s door. Some intramural sports are back, the gym is open, Tuesdays mean food trucks and trivia, films on Friday… it’s happening. For a complete and up to date list of things to do on campus, click here.

And always remember… leftover Mello Yello tastes like victory.
