Spring Break is scheduled from Saturday, March 5, through Sunday, March 13, and is fast approaching. Norwich campus leaders have been working collaboratively to provide you pertinent Spring Break information which is outlined below:
Residence Halls and barracks will close at noon on Saturday, March 5. Cadets are to comply with the departure checklist. The last meal served in the Wise Campus Center dining hall will be dinner on Friday, March 4. All students must be off campus during the Spring Break period unless they receive prior approval to remain on campus through the process outlined below.
We anticipate that a small number of students will need to remain on campus through the Spring Break. Consolidated housing in Alumni, Crawford, Dalrymple, and South Halls as well as daily meal service will be available at no additional cost.
Students who are unable to stay off campus, including in-season student-athletes planning to stay on campus during the Break, must submit a request for preapproval to stay on campus before Monday, Feb. 28 using the online Spring Break Stay Request Form.
NOTE: For safety and liability reasons, we must account for all students that remain housed on campus. Students found living in a residence hall or barracks without approval will be asked to leave and will face disciplinary action.
Public health data continue to trend favorably on campus. Consistent with medical guidance, the additional easing of restrictions as listed below is effective immediately.
Rates of spread have declined throughout two weeks of incrementally easing campus restrictions. Tremendous credit is owed to our students, faculty and staff. I again share my profound gratitude for the remarkable ways our campus has responded to the pandemic during the spring 2022 semester.
On Feb. 2 and again on Feb. 8, some campus facilities were designated “mask optional.” We have watched carefully for any adverse public health trends in these areas and throughout the campus. There has been no increased viral spread while social connectivity and mental health have improved significantly. Accordingly, all previously designated areas will remain “mask optional” and additional masking policies will be amended as specified below.
President Mark Anarumo updates the Norwich community on COVID-19, the easing of restrictions, and continued testing to ensure the community’s health and safety. Anarumo also commends the outstanding performance of our winter sports teams and individual student-athletes who are wrapping up their seasons.
