After a long year and a half, we are so excited to welcome students back to our beautiful campus this fall. We know students have missed being on campus as it is such a major aspect of the college experience.

While we are looking forward to a more normal-looking college experience this semester, it is very important to acknowledge that the pandemic is not over. As COVID-19 cases and the Delta variant continue to spread, we must remain vigilant in taking the proper precautions. Last week, President Robert Robbins announced a mask requirement in accordance with CDC guidance. Face masks must be worn in all indoor spaces where it is not possible to adequately and continuously maintain social distance, regardless of vaccination status. If you are not yet vaccinated and plan to be on campus, please consider getting the vaccination. Learn more about where you can get a vaccine at

On another note, we are looking forward to a brand new, beautiful space for students on the main floor of our building! This new space, which should be complete by the start of the spring semester, will include a student lounge, workspace, three group project rooms, a kitchen, outdoor patio, and offices for advisors, support staff, and our alumni council. More information (and photos!) to come soon.

We also have many new amazing faculty and staff members joining us this year! Others have taken on new roles or received well-deserved promotions. Learn more about them below.
