Hey Cougars,

We hope you are having a good week! We know things have been pretty crazy since the CES announcement last Thursday and other announcements since then. Even with changes at BYU, there are still resources here for you! We will continue sending the weekly newsletter through the end of the semester and hope to connect with you each week. You also still have a peer mentor and can communicate with them remotely. 

This week learn about the Honors Program, Cougar Cash, and watch an inspirational video with President Worthen.
