What is the College's vaccination policy? 

Students, faculty, and staff are all required to be vaccinated. 

Do I have to wear a mask if I visit campus? 

Yes! Please wear a mask at all times. 

I'm the parent of a new student. Can I come to campus and attend Family Programming at Orientation? 

Vaccinated family members and friends are welcome to help with move-in and to attend the family program from 2:00-4:00 pm on Friday followed by a family send-off. Families should plan to leave campus at 5:00 pm, when students will begin their formal orientation Please wear a mask at all times, indoors and outdoors. 

Unvaccinated family members and friends may help unload the car, but may not enter any buildings, nor participate in family programming. Please wear a mask at all times, indoors and outdoors. 

Only vaccinated family and friends will be permitted to attend orientation activities.

The College will be relying on the honor system for family members’ vaccination status. We trust that all families understand the importance of maintaining a healthy, safe environment for our students, and that arrival time is a particularly important time to adhere to safety guidelines.  

I'm the parent of a returning student. Can I come to campus to drop them off at the start of term?
