In response to feedback received following the December 15 EmmanuelForward COVID-19 update, changes have been made to the format for final exams. These changes, outlined below, accommodate students moving out of residence halls at the earliest possible time.
- All final exams scheduled for Monday, December 20th, will be conducted virtually. There will be no in-person exams on this day.
- Many final exams for Saturday, December 18th, have already moved to virtual formats. Faculty members have communicated with students if exams are online.
- There will be additional safety precautions in place for any exams happening in-person tomorrow. Faculty members will be checking for CoVerified “green screens” to ensure compliance with COVID-19 testing and symptom checking.
While the College will remain open until 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 21st, including food service in the Main Dining Room, we strongly encourage students to take advantage of the change to virtual exams and move out of the residence halls as schedule allows. Certainly, any student with established ticketed travel will not be asked to depart before campus closes on Tuesday morning.
Parents and families can assist students moving out of the residence halls. We ask that these family members remain masked while on campus. Students with questions about the move out process may contact Residence Life & Housing at email@example.com or the speak to the RA on duty.
We again thank the entire community for the continued diligence which has allowed us to complete the full semester of living and learning on campus. Additional information about the Spring 2022 semester will be sent in early January. We look forward to welcoming students back in the new year.
