I hope you are doing well and continuing to enjoy the summer weather. I am pleased to report that there continue to be no cases of coronavirus or suspected cases on campus. However, we are making plans for this Fall expecting that the virus will continue to makes its way across the country. The implementation of necessary safety protocols across campus that impact faculty, staff, and students are are how we plan to mitigate the spread of infection.
Despite all of these restrictions which may be discouraging to some, we will have the same excellence of academics that NHTI is known for. And, there will be student life- our athletes’ games will be livestreamed on Facebook and outdoor events can be viewed with social distancing. We will have weekly virtual events where students will have the opportunity to make friends and still have fun!
There have been questions related to rescheduling our commencement. This year, we provided a virtual commencement; with the pandemic’s unknown nature, we are unable to schedule an on-site celebration at this time.
On Monday, July 20th from 10-11am we will be holding an Open Public Forum for students and potential students, parents, and interested members of the community to provide opportunities to ask questions about NHTI and how we will look this Fall. Please join us by going to the Zoom link:
