Happy Independence Day!

Thursday, Jul 01, 2021

This weekend, we celebrate the 245th anniversary of America’s independence. I feel so fortunate to live in a nation that values freedom and equality, and I want to express my deepest gratitude to the brave men and women of our armed forces, who sacrifice so much to protect our way of life.

As we return to full on-campus operations, I know that many of us will gather with family and friends to celebrate. I want to remind you to be careful, especially if you plan to set off your own fireworks. Please observe all laws and ordinances for your area. If you own a pet, make sure it is secure and remains indoors, as many animals get spooked by fireworks and run off.

FAU will be closed on Monday, July 5, in observance of Independence Day. I hope you have a safe and pleasant holiday weekend.
