COVID-19 Operating Status We look forward to seeing you! We are currently on track to conduct in-person classes for the fall 2021 semester.
For Spring 2021, individuals coming to campus must complete a daily self-screening. COVID-19 testing is available on-campus for asymptomatic students, faculty, and staff.

It’s great to realize I’m capable of more than I think.
As a first-gen student, my parents didn’t know what to expect from the college experience, so I had to learn about the higher ed environment and the different resources on campus. Every student has to find their way during their first year, and it’s challenging being in charge of your own routine for the first time.
I’ve learned how to take initiative to seek out resources–like the Center for Diversity and Inclusion and the Career Center–and make my own decisions. It’s made me more independent and aware of my choices.
