De-densification plan

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.

Current restrictions

The all-student quarantine has been lifted for students within the residential cohort. Mask and physical distancing protocols remain in effect. The College’s alert level is at Moderate Alert.
