September 16, 2020: Read the latest communications for students in the Approved Residential Cohort.
Together with our public health consultants, faculty, and Board of Trustees, the College determined that our best path forward for the remainder of the semester is to de-densify campus by reducing the number of students in residence. To this end, a residential cohort of students will remain on the de-densified campus, while a remote cohort will continue to study virtually, for the remainder of the fall semester.
First-year students, transfer students, international students, and select other students who are unable to return home due to personal or academic reasons.
Students who will not remain in residence will continue their studies remotely for the fall semester.
Current status as of 9:00 a.m., Monday, September 14, 2020:
|Total number of students tested since 9/5/2020||828|
|Number of students whose tests are negative since 9/5/2020||825|
|Number of students whose tests were positive since 9/5/2020||3|
