Although influenza activity generally peaks around January, it takes the body about two weeks after vaccination to develop antibodies that will protect against influenza virus infection. For that reason, it's important to get vaccinated before the seasonal outbreak.
Students, staff, and faculty are invited to get their influenza vaccination through Health Services.

Four members of the KW Symphony will play Debussy's First String Quartet, in G minor, Op. 10.
Don't let the formal title of this extraordinary work fool you! Debussy's First String Quartet is anything but formal.
