A Message From Baxter: We're Almost There, Bearcats!
Hey Bearcats! It's me!
I bet you're wondering where I've been since the start of the semester. I’m sure you’ve read the messages that I put up around campus, as you’ve all been doing an excellent job by spreading Bearcat spirit and not the coronavirus.
Well, most of you.
Do you want to know why I haven’t been on campus? Do you want to know why we were put on PAWS-
I mean, PAUSE?
To stay safe, my socially distanced Bearcat friends! We’re doing the best we can given the circumstances. While there are a couple of naughty Bearcats who go Downtown to drink jungle juice (I’m from the jungle, and I don’t even drink that stuff!), and even a few who do not wear their green (mask) on Green Day Friday, I’m so proud of you.
For not going home and telling the RA that you’re “just self-quarantining in your dorm” or are “moving downtown” for the week.
Only a naughty Bearcat would do that. Those Bearcats get sent home, or must stay there, after we (me and Harvey) are notified by that same RA that they are no longer present in their room, and that their Bearcat ID has been suspiciously inactive over that week.
My new best friend, SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras, told me just how proud he was of all you Bearcats. He told me that our great green school has done more testing than any other. When I heard that, I just had to give him and Harvey a big ol’ Bearcat bear-hug!
Stay strong, stay safe, and above all...
