How can I Mask Up, Back Up, and Wash Up effectively on campus?  Wear your mask! Masks should cover your nose and mouth and should be worn indoors in public spaces and outdoors when you can not effectively be physically distant  from others. If you do not own a mask, you may purchase one in the Campus Store. Back Up: practice physical distancing by leaving 6 feet between you and others. Wash up: wash your hands often. 

What should I do if I was exposed to someone with COVID-19?  Report any potential exposure or symptoms to the Dean of Students Office and follow any instructions they provide to seek medical care or to quarantine. 

What should I do if I see another student who isn't wearing a mask? Remember, this is the year of community.  Please remind them nicely to wear their mask. We are all doing this for each other. Should you have questions, you may contact the Dean of Students Office

How will office hours be managed? All support services are still fully available to you; some are just offered in a different way. For example:  

  • All seating areas for Phil’s and Wingra have been spaced out for social distancing. Also, Stations that used to be self-serve are now either served by Dining Staff or are single packaged items.  
  • Health Services will see students for non-COVID concerns by appointment only. Personal counseling will be provided via telehealth. 
  • Current information on library services during COVID-19 is available on on the library website.


Plans for Fall 2020

Title : Plans for Fall 2020
Posting Date / Time : May 5, 2020, 17:00 PM

Dear Students

I know many of you are getting ready for final projects and final exams. Hang in there, you’re almost to the end of the semester. You’ve got this!  

Even as we move through the last week of classes for this semester, please let me update you on plans for fall 2020. We remain committed to teaching and learning in classrooms, and on campus, when the fall 2020 semester begins.

Many of you have told me it is the feeling of belonging, and of being in community, that first led you to explore becoming a student here. As President Gevelinger said in reaching this decision, "Our students, faculty, and staff have shown themselves to be creative and resilient in the face of this disruption But ‘at the heart of ministry is relationship,’ and those relationships are best formed and nurtured when we are together.”

You can be sure that, as is true with every semester, the health and the safety of our students and our entire community is the highest priority. That will of course be the case in August. We expect to welcome incoming freshmen to the residence halls on Sunday, August 16, 2020. And we expect classes to get underway on Wednesday, August 19 - on campus.  

We continue to heed the recommendations of the CDC, and follow the direction of our elected officials. While there is much that feels out of our hands during these days, we are taking steps to do everything we can to allow for your safe return to living and learning on campus this fall.

As you are aware, we'll have a new president at that time. While Dr. Andrew Manion’s official start date is June 1, he is already at work leading a task force to develop specific plans and contingencies for the fall semester at Edgewood College. 

All my best for a strong finish to a challenging semester, and be well!

As always, please reach out to deanofstudents@edgewood.edu or 608-663-2212 if you have further questions. 


Heather Harbach, Ed.D. '17
Vice President for Student Development
