UToledo President - Dr. Sharon L. Gaber

Welcome back, Rockets!

Happy new year, and welcome to spring semester. I hope you enjoyed time with friends and family during winter break and that you’re energized for what I’m sure will be a great 2020.

All of us at UToledo are excited to have you back on campus. We have a lot to look forward to as we continue our positive momentum to finish the 2019-20 academic year strong.

There are a number of new resources on our campuses to help fuel your success and I want to be sure you know the additional ways we are here to support you.

  • A new Student Food Pantry is now open on Health Science Campus to provide convenient and healthy options to all our students. Stop over to Health Education Building Room 112 weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. as you head to and from class.
  • The Counseling Center now offers expanded hours until 7 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays. This is the latest service improvement under new Director Dr. La Tasha Sullivan, whose team includes three new counselors.
  • The new Pre-Health Advising Center in University Hall 2160 also opened in November to provide enhanced support for students in our growing pre-professional and allied health programs.
  • If you haven’t tried the new FitDesks in Carlson Library, check them out! They’re on the fourth floor with views overlooking campus, and offer a great way to keep moving while catching up on readings for class.

I’m eager to see what you achieve this semester and I look forward to your participation in campus traditions like the Big Event , Songfest and RockeTHON. These events really display your energy and creativity, but also benefit important causes in our community.

We are all here to support your success. Let’s make this semester one to remember.

Go Rockets!
