Typhoon season has officially started! The rainy seasons is still in effect, so we have to be that much more careful out on the roads. For those of you teaching at Roland, you may have a textbook assigned to your class. Be sure and check who has the book, and if they’ve used it before, how far along they’ve gone before planning your course. If you need to purchase a new textbook, inform the office and we’ll order it for them- don’t have them order it themselves (Roland policy).
