Meet with Dr. Drew. Dr. Drew would like to have a Teams call with a few LCM Groups. Please email your LCM Coordinator to schedule a time to meet with her.

Complete your personal statement on EXXAT. Use this space to not only make a professional statement, but add some detail to make it personal. This will be viewed by preceptors and is a small way for them to get to know you. [Personal Statement Examples]

FACILITIES

Parking in the shade may be appealing, but every time you park outside of Noorda-COM delegated parking, you:

  • Risk getting fined
  • Take an RMU student’s parking spot
  • Affect the number of stalls at our future campus

Facilities makes daily trips to count the number of occupied parking stalls at Buildings 1, 4, and 5. Please park in our delegated areas. This will ensure that we correctly estimate the number of parking stalls needed at our future campus.

STUDENT AFFAIRS
