How can I Mask Up, Back Up, and Wash Up effectively on campus?  Wear your mask! Masks should cover your nose and mouth and should be worn indoors in public spaces and outdoors when you can not effectively be physically distant  from others. If you do not own a mask, you may purchase one in the Campus Store. Back Up: practice physical distancing by leaving 6 feet between you and others. Wash up: wash your hands often. 

What should I do if I was exposed to someone with COVID-19?  Report any potential exposure or symptoms to the Dean of Students Office and follow any instructions they provide to seek medical care or to quarantine. 

What should I do if I see another student who isn't wearing a mask? Remember, this is the year of community.  Please remind them nicely to wear their mask. We are all doing this for each other. Should you have questions, you may contact the Dean of Students Office

How will office hours be managed? All support services are still fully available to you; some are just offered in a different way. For example:  

  • All seating areas for Phil’s and Wingra have been spaced out for social distancing. Also, Stations that used to be self-serve are now either served by Dining Staff or are single packaged items.  
  • Health Services will see students for non-COVID concerns by appointment only. Personal counseling will be provided via telehealth. 
  • Current information on library services during COVID-19 is available on on the library website.

Dear Students -

It has been exciting to see our new and returning students move into the residence halls over the last few days!  Our student leaders and staff are working hard to get orientation kicked off today, with a great list of events to help our new students get ready for the first day of classes.  The energy is weaving through campus, and we are happy to feel it.

However, I have also noticed a few things happening that aren’t as exciting.  Not enough social distancing, mask wearing, and students not following policies found in our Student Handbook.  This is disappointing, as many students and staff have prepared throughout the summer to make sure these days, and those ahead of us, are safe for all of us here at Edgewood College. 

Eagles, I need your help.  Our community is counting on YOU.  In order for Edgewood College to have a successful year, success we are all working and hoping for, we all need to follow our guidelines 100%.  This means wearing your mask, always.  When you are with a group outside, if you are not social distancing, then you need a mask!  Remember, six feet apart, give your fellow Eagle some space.  For those living on campus, this means for now, your off-campus friends need to meet you and hang out in spaces outside of the residence hall building.  When eating in Wingra, give yourself some space and sit at the yellow dots.  

When it doubt, ask someone! 

For those of you returning to campus, things may look a bit different, so take some time to look over the Student Handbook for changes.  If you live on campus, be sure to attend those floor meetings and read over the housing policies.  Being informed will be a key part of your success!

I am as excited as you to get the year going.  Let’s all commit together to do our individual parts, so we can succeed and celebrate, this Year of Community.

As always, please reach out to deanofstudents@edgewood.edu or 608-663-2212 if you have further questions.
