Residential Students: Message from Residence Life

March 11, 2020

This afternoon, Dr. Mary J. C. Hendrix, Shepherd University President, announced that the University will be extending Spring Break through Sunday, March 29. This means that most students leaving for spring break will not return to the residence halls until Sunday, March 29, at the earliest. The University will send out communication at a later time if this return date changes. Please make sure to take all textbooks, notes, laptops, medications, and critical personal items with you when you leave for break. You do not need to remove everything from your room.

I understand that this announcement changes your plans and I appreciate your flexibility. These decisions are made with the goal of keeping all Shepherd community members as healthy as possible and to allow us to decrease the risk of a major interruption in academic progress for students. Based on this information, here are some things that you should know about the residence halls closing this Friday and about your eligibility to remain on campus:

Dr. Liz Sechler
Director of Residence Life
