Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. (Proverbs 30:5)
After carefully reviewing information from the state of Ohio, the CDC, and other colleges and universities, we are ready to announce the revised spring 2021 academic calendar. We wanted to make it available as soon as possible so students and families can make plans.
Out of an abundance of caution, we will start the spring semester two weeks later than normal (Tuesday, January 19), and in order to end the semester on time, we will eliminate the normal breaks, including spring break and Good Friday. While this is not our first choice, we believe it gives us the best opportunity to manage COVID-19 cases on campus and to reduce potential spread of infection when students travel.
Recognizing the great significance that Good Friday has for all of us, we plan to hold special events on campus to celebrate our Lord’s death and resurrection.
The online academic calendar will be updated later this morning to reflect these changes.
