As we continue our spring semester planning, we are writing with some news about the Class of 2021 Commencement and Joint Commissioning ceremonies, scheduled for Saturday, May 1. We do not have all of the details yet but wanted to provide you with as much information as we can so you may plan accordingly.
First, it is our intention to hold both Commencement and Joint Commissioning ceremonies on the same day and in-person. All graduating seniors studying on campus, are commuting, or are studying remotely are invited to participate.
Effective Monday, March 8, the restriction by residential building will be lifted. Residential students will transition to “Phase 1” campus quarantine environment, restricted by published “student household.” All students will be required to remain on campus, but will be allowed to move about the campus more freely. Please note: students will only be allowed to enter the residential buildings and rooms in which members of their student household (defined below) reside. Students will be able to continue participating in outdoor activities as well as institutional programming with appropriate COVID-19 protocols.
Per Vermont Health Department COVID-19 guidelines, students still may not pick up their mail directly.
