Dear Carolina Community,

Happy first day of classes for fall semester 2021! It’s great to have you on campus, and I wanted to mark this special occasion with a video message.

Our faculty and staff have worked tirelessly to prepare for a successful semester. As you make the most of every opportunity our campus has to offer, please remember to continue to follow our COVID-19 Community Standards. We have a collective responsibility to keep each other safe and healthy this fall. If you haven’t yet received a safe, effective and free COVID-19 vaccine, I encourage you to go to the Student Stores Pharmacy.

Convocation on Monday night was an amazing moment for our Classes of 2024 and 2025. Your enthusiasm for the start of this semester is something I will long remember. I hope to see you at Sunset Serenade and the Bell Tower Lighting tomorrow.

Have a great FDOC and a wonderful semester.


Kevin M. Guskiewicz
