Officials from the school said they’re happy to start off the year as any other normal year would.

“We are really fortunate to have been able to weather this storm of the second wave of COVID, and are really grateful and fortunate to be able to offer in-person classes to our students, and have our students on campus–our ‘Senators in Session’,” said Kate Garlick, Dean of Students for the college.
