I promise ... to wear my mask

A student shows off her mask on campus Sunday as she takes the Student Oath on Paine Mountain. President Mark C. Anarumo has asked Norwich’s community — students, faculty and staff — to keep campus healthy and the semester going, by minding their health, washing their hands, keeping their physical distance and wearing their face masks.

“We must not be complacent, we must not be careless. … There’s a lot at stake here,” he said in a welcome video last week.

Students spent Sunday, which capped the last weekend before Monday’s start of classes, participating in activities including the Dog River Run and the oath ceremony. The annual run, which came in the morning, involved smaller groups than in past years to allow participants to keep 6-foot physical distancing, as outlined by the Vermont Health Department and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
