Student Testing After Fall Break 

As a reminder, Saturday, Oct. 16 and Sunday, Oct. 17 are mandatory testing days for all students. Students must test on one of these two days if they have not already communicated that their travel plans won’t allow them to be on campus in time.

Please check HC Clear to see available times and schedule your test.

Inauguration and Family Weekend 

In accordance with the College’s COVID-19 visitor’s policy, all Family Weekend and Inauguration visitors 12 years of age or older must present evidence of being fully vaccinated OR present evidence of a negative COVID-19 test.

For Students, Faculty and Staff: To attend any indoor event during the weekend you will need a wristband. You can get your wristband at the Testing Center after testing on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. If you are in your 90-day COVID-recovered period, you’ll be able to obtain one also at the testing center without testing. 

Wristbands will be fastened to your wrist on-site. The wristbands are plastic, waterproof, and are designed to last a full week.

For visitors: When arriving on campus, families should first check-in on the first floor of the Hogan Campus Center. There your vaccination status or COVID-19 test will be verified so you can receive a wristband. Wristbands will be checked at the entrance of all indoor events.
