All rental customers were contacted last week via email with “how to” instructions for returning fall rental materials.
Students may get rental books back to the bookstore by any means that work as long as you adhere to the check-in dates. Please check in items no longer needed before leaving campus; purchase a pre-paid shipping label from the campus store prior to leaving campus; call the store prior to the check-in date to pay for a pre-paid label over the phone (it will be emailed to you) or by shipping via any trackable means from home.
If you have items checked out from our Library and need to keep them past the end of the semester, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to renew them. We would be happy to renew your items until the Spring semester, but we need to hear from you in order to do this!
If you have borrowed items from another Library through Interlibrary Loan, please return these before leaving campus to avoid being billed. (Our book return is accessible in our hallway 24 hours a day.)
We’re here to help! If you are working on projects or papers as the semester draws to a close, keep in mind that our resources are available from anywhere at library.mma.edu, and that we are on hand to help you via email, phone, chat or Zoom! Chat hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Friday. We can help you find and cite quality sources for assignments in all subject areas
If you have been exposed to someone diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus and get sick with fever (100.4 F or higher) or cough, or have trouble breathing, or have lost your sense of taste/smell:
- Seek medical care. Call ahead before visiting the Health Center (326-2305), your doctor’s office or an emergency room. Medical staff will ask you questions and properly prepare for your arrival.
- Tell your health care provider about your recent travel and your symptoms.
- Avoid contact with others.
The Health Center will be open through November 20 with regular hours.
In the meantime, please continue to practice general hygiene and build your immunity by washing your hands frequently and thoroughly, avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands, getting enough sleep, and avoiding close contact with those who are sick.
There is a plan for giving every student the opportunity to cadet ship next summer. There are no guarantees as available spaces depend on what companies can offer, but if the berths are available everyone will have the opportunity to both cadet ship and complete their needed cruise during summer 2021.
Students preparing to cadet ship should focus on their studies and their class ranking, which determines who gets first opportunity at available billets. They should also monitor their e-mail for communications from Deborah Harman, our Commercial Shipping Coordinator. Please do not 1) contact companies directly, or 2) ask for special treatment. If you have a personal or family connection with a company, please contact Deborah Harman for instructions.
The plan for co-ops will be developed in early spring in consultation with the host employers. Academy officials will make decisions regarding 2021 co-op placements based on guidance and information provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and host companies.
Students planning to participate should enroll in the summer course appropriate to the student’s major and continue to prepare and meet all course deadlines and pre-requisites, including physicals and all requested documentation.
Please direct questions on the following subjects to these contacts. Also, please note that email is the preferred method of communication. Thank you!
