Message from the President

Dear Campus Community,

Like we did in the fall, we will have a slightly modified calendar for spring semester. We will start a few weeks later than usual to help avoid the coldest weeks of the year when using outside spaces is hard and to give us added time for planning and preparation. We will forego the traditional spring break (to limit the exposure of students traveling off campus). We will, however, have three (non-consecutive) break days throughout the semester. Those dates are being finalized. For more on our spring plans:

Social Life

I will continue to share updates via email and will provide details as soon as decisions are made. This year has been hard, but I am proud of the work we are doing together. Our focus will continue to be on having the campus open, working to manage COVID, and providing our students a life-changing liberal arts education.

Adam Weinberg
