How will this impact the rest of my schedule?

If you have a class scheduled for Boyer Hall (BOY), the Prezell R. Robinson Library (PRRL), the Seby Jones Fine Arts complex (SBFA), or the Taylor Wellness Center (WELLNESS), you can attend class from your dorm room, from one of the many study rooms or alcoves on campus, or from one of the designated computer labs. Faculty for these classes will hold office hours virtually.

What about my classes that aren’t in those buildings?

If you are scheduled for a class that is not designated to be virtual, it’s business as usual! You will still attend all your classes as your schedule indicates. Classes held in Cheshire, Penick, Tuttle, and Emery Gymnasium will still meet in person. Faculty teaching in those buildings will still hold in-person office hours. Tutoring and writing support will still be available in person as well.
