Visitor Policy

Visitors are generally permitted on campus again. This includes allowing visits from family members and friends, spectators at sporting events, etc. We do strongly encourage any unvaccinated visitors to follow CDC guidance and wear a mask, maintain physical distance, etc. If any visitor begins experiencing any flu-like symptoms, they should depart campus as soon as possible.

Please review some specific exceptions to the visitor policy:

9/28/21 - Prospective Students:

Prospective students who wish to attend a full class as part of their campus visit will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination. This requirement does not apply for standard campus tours, only for an individual who would like to attend class during the visit. Please work through your Admissions Counselor to demonstrate proof of vaccination.

Prospective student-athletes may, under very limited circumstances, be permitted to schedule an overnight visit, and if so, they will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination. These visits will be approved and coordinated through Athletics, and any prospective student should work through the coach/recruiter to demonstrate proof of vaccination.

9/1/21 - Hodson Dining is closed to those outside of the campus community until further notice.

Official guests of staff, students and faculty are permitted to use the Dining Hall. This restriction applies to those guests who are not affiliated with the College, or those who are not here on official business. We hope to re-open the dining hall to the community later in the semester.

8/20/21 - No Overnight Guests Until Further Notice

One additional factor in allowing an extra degree of freedom and discretion within student living spaces is that until further notice, overnight guests are prohibited. An overnight guest is anyone who currently does not live on campus, so this does apply to off-campus students. 

As noted above, the Athletics Department has discretion to schedule overnight visits for prospective student-athletes on a limited basis, as this relates to official College business. In the event they determine that an overnight is appropriate, the prospective student will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, which will ensure the safety of our current students.

Our hope is that this restriction will be a temporary measure, but at this point we do not have a defined end date. We will be re-evaluating this policy periodically.
