    Yes! You can win prizes from weekly drawings an unlimited number of times and you can participate in as many Prize Patrol pop-up events as you'd like. However, monthly prizes and grand prizes are limited to one per student.

  • Why should I complete Dr. Chat Bot every day?

    Identifying COVID-19 symptoms is a great way to ensure public health in the Rochester community. Recognizing symptoms early is key to preventing further transmission which is why it is required that students, faculty, and staff self-screen daily, even if you aren't going to be on campus that day!
