Erie Campus - As we close out 2020, we are preparing for next semester

Posted: December 18, 2020

As we break for the Christmas holiday, we are already looking forward to welcoming you back to campus on Jan. 25. This is a quick note to wish you a Merry Christmas and to let you know we are excited to return for another semester of face-to-face instruction in the new year.

As we previously announced, we are starting classes two weeks later than usual to put some distance between the holidays – and any gatherings you might have – and the start of classes.

Classes at both the Erie and Ruskin campuses will begin Jan. 25. We have, of course, established contingency plans should the situation in Florida or Pennsylvania necessitate a change, but we have a solid plan to return to campus for a face-to-face experience as we did successfully last semester.

To achieve a safe opening and to stay open it what will be a very challenging environment, we will be taking the following steps:  

More details on these steps will be communicated in January. Please continue to monitor your email and for more information prior to returning to campus.

For now, rest, relax and enjoy your break and be ready to come back in January to do it all over again.
