In this time of pandemic, community safety is our shared responsibility. With this in mind we have shifted from a large group orientation program to a hybrid online and in-person onboarding for new students.
Move-in will be staggered to allow for physical distancing and all new students are assigned to an orientation group. Your orientation group will abide by the guidelines outlined on the Being Community website. Physical distancing does not mean isolation and students will connect with their small groups of peers in person and move through orientation together. Each group will have a peer guide leader who will support you and will connect with you and you orientation group throughout the month of September.
