Welcome to the New Semester

Welcome to the New Semester

Welcome back, Owls! I hope you are as excited as I am for the start of a new academic year.

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our faculty, staff and students, last year, FAU set new records for research contracts and grants, National Merit Scholar students enrolled, private gifts to the FAU Foundation, and football wins. We’re well on our way to becoming “America’s fastest improving university,” and working together, there is no limit to what this university can achieve.

You may have seen the announcement that the MyFAU portal recently was redesigned for ease of use and navigation. I encourage everyone to download the updated MyFAU app, where you can access your university email, campus maps, news, FAU Self-Service, Canvas and more. I also recommend that you download the Owl Ready app, FAU’s premier safety and preparedness app. The well-being of our students, staff and visitors is our top priority, and I cannot stress the importance of the “See Something, Say Something” movement in keeping our campuses and community safe. Just click “Say Something” in the Owl Ready app to report suspicious persons or activity.

I hope to see you at FAU Stadium this fall cheering the football team on to victory. The Owls are the defending Conference USA Champions, and for the first time in school history, the team is ranked in the Top 25 nationally in Sports Illustrated’s pre-season poll! We will host the U.S. Air Force Academy for the home opener on Saturday, September 8. Game days are always filled with fun, and tickets to home football games are free for all students, so please come out and support the Owls. Click here to see the football team’s schedule.

It’s going to be a great year of learning in paradise. Go Owls!
