UPDATED Nov. 13, 2020 — The College decided several weeks ago to transition to a modified online class model for the final eight class days and subsequent final exam schedule following Thanksgiving break. This week, in response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the College opted to move up the start date for online delivery to include Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 23 and 24, the days before our Thanksgiving break. This is a result of our uptick in positive COVID cases on campus this week, coupled with significant increases of cases on the county and state levels. A week ago, we had a meeting with officials at the County Health Department. Although they did not see an immediate need for the College to move to the modified online class model at this time, we prefer to be extra cautious as we enter the academically critical final part of the semester.
While the vast majority of classes will meet virtually Nov. 23 through the end of the semester, about a dozen will need to continue on an in-person basis. Faculty members have alerted students in those classes, which are primarily in the areas of equestrian, athletic training and biology, Special provisions are being made for any students in those classes who are unable to return in-person after Thanksgiving.
Also, the College will continue to offer the previously announced residential options. Students should plan to go home, as they are able, following their last in-person class on Friday, Nov. 20, unless they made an accommodation with the Housing Office to stay on campus during Thanksgiving break. Students wishing to continue residing on campus should login to their StarRez account to request a housing accommodation for specific periods (such as Nov. 21-24 or Nov. 30-Dec. 15) between Nov. 20 and the end of the semester. Campus offices, the dining hall and all other student services will remain open on November 23 and 24 and after Thanksgiving break.
