Frequently Asked Questions
Will we come to campus as planned on March 1 for in-person classes?
Because of the low water pressure issues and the repairs to facilities, we are delaying the return to in-person classes. Those courses will now tentatively transition to face-to-face immediately after spring break on March 29, 2021.
When are we moving back to campus?
The university administration is hopeful that students who had to move off-campus to temporary accommodations in hotels will move back soon, although we cannot give a specific date at this time. While water pressure is increasing on campus, it is still not at a level that would allow proper sanitation and heating of certain residence halls.
How do I opt-in/sign-up for text alerts from Division of Enrollment Management and Student Success?
Students should contact Mrs. Rita Conley, Director of Student Success, at firstname.lastname@example.org
