Fall 2021 | Raiders return to the full Ship experience

Mask up and vax up for a well deserved and rewarding fall semester 

A Rewarding In-person Academic Experience

An in-person academic experience eliminates social distancing in the classroom and includes research opportunities, study abroad, internships, job shadowing and career fairs. Student success and support services will help ensure students continue their journey from coursework to career. Additional information available May 15. Classes begin August 23.

A Robust & Vibrant Campus Community

A robust campus life experience includes Homecoming and tailgating, vibrant fraternity and sorority activities, thrilling esport competitions, captivating performances including Marching Band and the Performing Arts, face-to-face club meetings, engaging living and learning communities, delicious and discounted Downtown dining with Raider Bucks, and championship teams battling it out in accordance with PSAC guidelines.

All Student Support Services & Facilities OPEN

ALL facilities will be OPEN including: the state’s best residence halls (ranked #4), a wide array of dining venues (and an exciting new student-requested favorite!), student success support centers and services, ShipRec, the Library, Memorial Hall, the Downtown Centers for Excellence, Etter Health Center, the Luhrs Center, and many others.

Health & Well-being is the Key to Success

Health and well-being measures will continue to include face coverings, social distancing, case investigations, vaccinations and testing in accordance with PA Department of Health guidelines. Ship will provide custom designed personal protective equipment to all students, faculty, and staff. Sanitizing and temperature stations will be throughout campus, and facilities will continue to be cleaned according to Centers for Disease Control guidelines.

“What our campus community accomplished in the last year is nothing short of extraordinary, and we’re excited to keep pushing forward and provide students with opportunities that look more like campus prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

-Dr. Tom Ormond, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
