ALL GRADUATE AND UNDERGRADUATE DEREE STUDENTS

We strongly encourage all ACG members to get vaccinated and boosted as the first line of defense in protecting your health, the health of your families and the health of our community. Getting vaccinated, maintaining proper social distances, wearing masks when appropriate, observing hand hygiene measures, and staying home when sick, creates a community of care where we can live and learn more safely.
