TA Tip(s) of the week


As Christmas Holidays are fast approaching, so are family gathering and trips. This week is a great time to remind advisees who are going to be either leaving early for holidays, or returning a bit after January 8th, that the school requires written notice of their absence, sent directly to Angela Cardinale.



Have a great week, everyone!​
