‘This Office was Occupied Today’ magnet


Good day, everyone. For those of you who returned to campus last week, from all of us in custodial, we hope you had a great week. It was good to see more friendly faces back on campus again. Some have asked, “Do we still need to use our magnets indicating, This Office Was Occupied Today?” The answer is, Yes. We will continue to use magnets until further notice. With a limited crew due to COVID, these magnets enable us to better serve our campus. Thanks for your help and understanding. If you have any questions or need more magnets please call 817-735-2181 or send me an email at jerry.emerson@unthsc.edu.

Thank you,

Jerry Emerson
