COVID-19 update: Important changes to campus operations

November 15, 2021

Dear Students,

As we have continued to closely monitor our campus COVID-19 test results over the past few days, we are seeing the number of positive cases level off. As a result, the College is implementing the following operational changes, effective immediately:

  • The Dining Hall and The Spa will resume normal operations with limited capacity. The grab-and-go option at Murray-Aikins Dining Hall will continue.
  • Students are now permitted to have one masked visitor (one per student) in residence hall rooms or apartments. Off-campus students must follow the same guidelines as on-campus students.

While this development is encouraging, circumstances can change and so we ask that you continue to exercise good judgement and always demonstrate respect for others in our community.

Making responsible choices now will help ensure you are able to return home, safely, for Thanksgiving break.

Thank you again for your efforts.
