Dear All,

Welcome back to UCI! I hope your first day of class went well (if you had a Thursday class). It is nice to finally to be able to meet in person. It might be a little hectic during the first few weeks for everyone to get used to campus life and in-person classes and activities again. Don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or need help!
