Subject: California Wildfires
Barely eight weeks after the deadly impact of the North Bay wildfires, California is again contending with the disruptive and devastating effects of six fires extending from San Diego to Santa Barbara. At a time when students should be taking a well-deserved break and reuniting with family members and loved ones, some of you may be dealing with the terrible consequences of this natural disaster. Please know that we are thinking of you and hope that you stay safe in the weeks ahead. If you require assistance or support, please contact Campus and Student Life if there is any way we can possibly help. You may reach us by contacting the Dean-on-Call (who is available 24-hr a day, every day) at 773-834-HELP (4357).
