As we planned for the academic year which is nearly at an end, we have had three primary goals. It is becoming apparent that we will not be able to achieve all of these outcomes. In an attempt to celebrate the Class of 2021 with an in-person commencement, we will begin the closure of residence spaces over the next three days for first, second, and third year students.
As of Monday morning, we have 25 active cases of COVID-19 on our campus with a number of these cases being new within the last 72 hours. Our goals remain: finish the semester in person and hold our in-person Commencement. However, quickly rising cases are putting those goals at risk.
Today we have 8 new, and 15 active cases of COVID-19 on campus. Our in-person Commencement is now at risk. Campus living for the remainder of the semester is now at risk. Protecting these goals requires that we stop the virus in its tracks now.
Congrats to Kathryn Huntress '22 social work, on being named a Newman Civic Fellow for her commitment to finding solutions for challenges facing communities locally, nationally, and internationally.
This week, all students can register to receive a COVID-19 vaccination at one of many locations around our region and the state of Maine. Use our guide to schedule your vaccine appointment, and help us reach our “community immunity” goal of 85% vaccinated against this deadly, debilitating virus.
Learn about the new re-entry protocols if you leave campus overnight or longer.
This week, we begin rolling out our new college brand to the world, ushering in a new way to communicate the role that Saint Joe’s has been fulfilling for over a century: as the place where community grows.
