The private college, after careful analysis, concluded that it would not be possible to adequately assure student and employee safety in the wake of a COVID-19 case occurring on campus and has decided to cease instructional activities at the end of the day on Friday, March 13th.
Students are requested to give immediate consideration to planning to return home with this Saturday, the 14th, being move-out day. Residence hall rooms will need to fully vacated. For students for whom returning home would be a hardship, continuing accommodations on campus can be provided, upon application to Student Life. Students who will need assistance with travel costs may also apply to Student Life for assistance. All students will continue to be paid for their campus work positions through the end of the semester, even if they are off campus and not able to actually work.
College operations will not cease, and staff should plan to continue to fulfill their job responsibilities until further notice.
