A Note from IVETS

As you settle into classes and gear up for midterms, we hope you’re taking time to enjoy the sweater weather and the virtual Homecoming events. The computer lab and lounge may be closed for the rest of the fall semester, but the benefits office in 2706 UCC is open, and we are all here for you via phone, Zoom, and email. Printing is still available, too! And, mark your calendars—Wednesday, November 11th is Veterans Day, and we will be honoring our Hawkeye Veterans and current service members throughout that week.
