COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Updates

Returning to Campus

We currently plan for all academic, athletic, and student-related events to take place as scheduled. We will send out notifications of any cancellations or delays as soon as we confirm the change in the schedule.

We will continue to monitor all guidance and information provided by the CDC and our local public health experts. If the situation changes, we will take the appropriate steps to change, as well, in order to make sure the health, safety, and welfare of the Ram Family continues to be our top priority.
