Any of our plans may need to change based on government and medical guidelines, so we ask for your continued patience and flexibility. If future guidance requires a different action, the safety of our students, their families, our faculty and staff, will be the most important factor in our decisions. Please watch for additional information this summer regarding potential social distancing practices that may need to be in place for Commencement weekend.
