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.


Spring Semester Update - A Sign of Things to Come

Title : Spring Semester Update - A Sign of Things to Come
Posting Date / Time : Mar 25, 2021, 15:30 PM
Dear Students and Colleagues – 

On this date, exactly one year ago, Wisconsin Emergency Order #12, the “Safer at Home Order,” went into effect. One year later, here we are. We have learned a lot about ourselves, our teaching and learning styles, and I hope you’ll agree we’ve gained insight into what is truly important in our lives; our family, our friends, and our communities.

We are all aware of course that the pandemic is not over, and we continue to take the necessary steps to avoid contracting and spreading COVID-19. But look at what we have accomplished. We’ve managed the cases in our community, and continue to do so, and avoided significant disruptions to the conduct of this academic year. We are just past midterms for the spring semester, which means we’re heading into the home stretch. I ask you to think for a moment about what you were thinking one year ago on this date. And then fast forward to today and consider all that you have done – and all that your fellow students and colleagues have done – to get us to this spot. I hope that brings a smile to your face. It has not been easy, but getting to March 25, 2021 points to better days ahead.

At the end of last year, the College made the painful decision to cancel Commencement ceremonies. Commencement is the most significant ceremony we have, and that decision was not reached lightly. There were simply too many unknowns. Today, while there are still uncertainties ahead of us, we are committed to an in-person Commencement to celebrate our graduates. Late yesterday I announced the decision that this year’s Commencement will be in-person, outdoors, and on campus. We will continue to adhere to the protocols as defined by our public health officials. That’s a big reason why we’ll be outdoors, and a big reason why we’re staging a total of three ceremonies. Even with the uncertainties of the weeks ahead, we can (and will) control what we as a community can control. There will be limits of course related to how many of us can gather, etc., but we’ll create a day to honor our graduates (including those who were unable to celebrate last May), welcome at least some of their family members to celebrate with us, and we’ll do it right here. And it will be awesome.   

Be well and be safe. Wear your mask, and keep your circles tight. 

Let’s hold each other up as we all turn toward finishing the semester strong, and turn toward the better days ahead.

Cor ad cor loquitur.

-Andrew P. Manion, Ph.D.
