CHECK YOUR RIDE
As part of the 24/7 For Your Safety initiative, the Office for Student Affairs, in cooperation with Fitzpatrick Auto Center, encourages all BVU students to Check Your Ride before you travel for Christmas Break.  Simply go to Fitzpatrick Auto Center, 1301 N. Lake, during the week of Wednesday, December 3 – Wednesday, December 10 to have a Fitzpatrick technician give your vehicle a quick safety inspection.  Fitzpatrick technicians will check all of your fluid levels, check all your belts and hoses, and check your tire pressure.  The best part is….  IT’S ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!  Just bring your BVU Student ID with you in order for you to participate.  If you have any questions, please contact the Office for Student Affairs.

STUDENT CARE-PAK SERVICES   
The end of the semester is quickly approaching, and that naturally means finals week!  You have the opportunity to purchase a Care-Pak(s) for your students to receive the day before finals start.  Finals this year are December 8th thru the 11th.  Snack-Paks contain a combination of healthy foods and snack foods, while the Health-Pak is mainly healthy foods.  Both are an excellent way to lift your son and/or daughter’s spirits during this crucial time.  When students receive these packages, they remember they are supported by the people they love, and it gives them an extra boost of motivation to succeed, all thanks to your support.   Go to the Student M.O.V.E. website at https://www.bvu.edu/bv/community-service/student-move.dot for more complete details and to place an order for one or more Care Paks.  If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Civic Engagement.
