As announced last week, the College has decided to continue in an online environment for the spring 2021 semester, with a few exceptions for courses that can only be offered in person. The safety and security of the College community is our first priority, and all of us need to be a part of the solution when it comes to stopping the spread of COVID-19.
Through these difficult times, we are striving to offer you all the support and resources you need to achieve success. I commend all of you for continuing to make the necessary adjustments for virtual learning.
Students, we remain committed to helping you move forward with your education, and we can assist you with the same supports that you would receive if you were on campus. We have been learning right along with you on how to offer you the best experience possible in our new normal. The College will help you accomplish your goals online so you don’t interrupt your educational journey. By working together, I know we can assist in meeting your goals.
Wear a Mask, Save Lives
We all have the power to contain the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. Let’s maintain our focus on keeping each other healthy and safe. Masks will protect others, and wearing one is required in Pennsylvania. Learn more about mask guidelines and see more updates for Pennsylvania.
A Message for Students About Online Learning
You can succeed in an online environment—don’t put your education and your future on hold. Listen to a message of encouragement from Jeffrey Markovitz, Ph.D., associate professor of English. Watch what other faculty members want to say to you regarding online learning.
