The community, students, and families will be updated as we have more information and details in the coming weeks. List of topics addressing academics, athletics, study abroad, etc.
Undergraduate and graduate students not residing on campus in the spring semester will need to apply for campus usage. It is important to reiterate that such access would require strict compliance with all health and safety guidelines, including regular testing. Information and instructions on how to apply will be communicated to students in the coming weeks.
Arcadia has focused our study abroad opportunities this academic year on programs in the UK, Ireland, and Spain. Anyone interested in study abroad opportunities for spring 2021 should contact the Office of Study Away. The Office of International Programs will share details on Preview and Global Field Study courses soon.
Athletics will continue to follow regulations and guidelines from the NCAA and related sports organizations, as well as state and regional public health organizations. The current limited access to the Kuch Center, athletics fields, gym, and workout spaces for fitness and general recreational use for undergraduate students will continue. Athletics will communicate directly with student-athletes and their families once formal decisions are made regarding intercollegiate athletics for winter and spring sports and the possibility of fall sports during the spring semester. We expect to provide an update on winter sports in November.
Success in the gradual resumption of campus operations is dependent on our access to testing, our contact tracing effectiveness, and our commitment as a community in remaining ARCADIA STRONG against COVID-19 and the flu. To safely expand our campus access and usage, our campus community will commit to a campus compact to protect and respect our community by embracing physical distancing practices, wearing masks, and limiting group gatherings. WEAR A MASK - WASH HANDS - SAFELY DISTANCE - LIMIT GATHERINGS.
