We love getting feedback and it’s nice to know that the staff members enjoy reading the newsletter each quarter. If you ever have an idea, suggestion or a comment, please feel free to email me at StaffNewsletter@LIFE.edu. Memorial Day is right around the corner and I know we’re all glad for summer to arrive. Hopefully, we will have some nice weather and we can enjoy being outside and exploring LIFE’s beautiful campus. I know I’m excited for summer! We have a lot of great articles for you to read this issue. Wellness is very important to us here at Life University, and many of us strive for health and wellness in our daily lives. We have created a new newsletter section called Life-Steps to Wellness that I think you will enjoy. The article includes bullet points on how you can better yourself and your health. We plan to publish this section every quarter going forward.

Yummy! In our Tech Tips article, Mario Bailey has provided instructions for calculating how much vacation and personal time you will accrue in order to determine how much you will have at the end of the fiscal year. It will help you decide how much vacation time you wish to take before the cutoff date of September 30th. Have a great rest of the quarter!
