In keeping with our intent to bring students back for the fall semester, our leadership team and COVID Task Force have developed a plan to begin in-person classes on August 10. Because many students attend classes across our tri-campus community, aligning our academic calendar with Notre Dame and Holy Cross is imperative. Therefore, we have decided to begin in-person classes on Monday, August 10, forego fall break, and complete the semester before Thanksgiving Break. We are deeply committed to ensuring the well-being of our campus community, and we will require that additional protective measures be put into place on campus to enhance the safety of all campus constituencies, and especially vulnerable populations.
Please understand, this plan may change. It depends on the status of the pandemic in our region, as well as on access to enough testing and diagnostics to meet our needs, among other complex factors. We look forward to working as a tri-college community to address these challenges.
Due to COVID-19, we have decided to suspend all on-campus visit activities for prospective and admitted students until Tuesday, July 7.
We are so sorry for the inconvenience this causes. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update this message if any other changes occur to our visit programming. In the meantime, set up a virtual meeting with your admission counselor by clicking here.
We hope to be fully operational soon and to welcome you and your families on campus for an amazing visit experience! In the meantime, check out our gorgeous campus through our virtual tour.
We encourage every prospective student to visit our beautiful campus. Whether you’re interested in arranging an individual visit or joining other curious students during our on-campus event programs, we have an option for you and your family. Come see for yourself if Saint Mary’s is the place you want to call home!
Here are some things you might include in your individual visit:
- take a guided tour
- meet with an admission counselor
- attend a class or meet individually with a professor
- talk with a coach or attend a sporting event
- eat at one of the on-campus locations
- connect with campus ministry or another department on campus
- spend the night in a residence hall (limited to high school seniors)
- shop at the bookstore
While we do our best to accommodate drop-in visitors, the Office of Admission can best meet your expectations if you register in advance. Please notify the office at least one week in advance to observe a class and two weeks in advance for an overnight stay.
To schedule your visit, please complete this form. One of our visit coordinators will be in touch to confirm the details. You may also call us at 800-551-7621 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
