Student Studying

Eagle Parents,

As your student embarks upon the last semester before summer break they may become a bit anxious around mid-March. Let’s remind them to pace themselves and to reach out if they find themselves struggling with managing their stress.

This is also flu season, a good time to send your student a care package (which they still love) with cold essentials as we encourage them to wash their hands, get rest, and stay hydrated.

Thank you for the important role that you play in supporting your student.

Sincerely,
Yvette Knox
Director of Parent & Family Engagement

Important Information

A novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has been identified in China and in travelers from China to other countries, including the U.S. Airline passengers from the affected area of China are being screened as they arrive in the U.S. for symptoms including fever and cough or difficulty in breathing. Health officials worldwide are monitoring this outbreak.

At this time, we are not aware of any cases of Corona Virus (2019 nCoV) on campus. We have checked with all students on our Lisle campus who are Chinese citizens and confirmed that they did not travel home to China during the December holidays. We have reached out to all instructors who taught in Asia in October, November, or December 2019 and January 2020, and confirmed that no one has reported any illness since returning.

Your student's well-being is the top priority for Student Health Services and the University. Please see below for more information from the CDC website and the Illinois Department of Health. Be assured that Student Health Services is in communication with the Illinois Department of Health as well as on-campus resources such as the Department of Emergency Management, International Programs, and Marco Masini, Dean of Students.

The CDC recommends that travelers avoid non-essential travel to China. https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices/watch/novel-coronavirus-china.
