COVID-19 Impact

In light of the current health crisis, all athletic facilities remain closed until further notice.

There are several virtual physical education classes being offered during summer term 2020 as well as a few virtual FLIP classes available for the community.

The College has suspended the requirements of a successful swim test and all remaining physical education credits for those undergraduate students who are graduating at the conclusion of summer ('20), fall, winter, or spring terms of the 2020-21 academic year and have not yet met these requirements.
