All campus visitors are required to follow all masking guidelines as we continue to develop guidance and plan events for the coming year, we may issue special guidelines for visitors for certain events or settings.
We are restricting outside visitors from attending indoor events such as lectures and art performances. For example, tickets will be required for Eisner Center events and will be limited to ensure proper social distancing. Parents will be welcomed at athletic events, arts performances and other indoor campus events, but we are going to limit local community members. If events are indoors, all members in attendance at such events are required to be masked regardless of vaccination status, and in some cases, we may make the decision to restrict the attendance to members of the Denison community.
Prospective Student Visitors
Prospective students will not be permitted to attend classes without the consent of the faculty members teaching the classes, which will be coordinated by the Office of Admission. Faculty members can choose not to have prospective students in their classes at any time. Admission will contact faculty members on a case-by-case basis to discuss their comfort level and any other requirements for allowing prospective students in their classrooms, as appropriate. At a base level, to attend classes, all prospective students must be fully vaccinated and must provide proof of vaccination to the Office of Admission before attending classes on campus.
Big Red Weekend Information
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our priority at Denison has been preserving the safety of our community while providing students with as normal a college experience as possible. With a strong interest in continuing to host events this fall, the University has introduced several COVID mitigation strategies. Vaccines continue to be our best defense against COVID-19, and in preventing serious illness and hospitalizations, and for this reason, we are requiring all visitors to campus to be fully vaccinated. We ask those alumni, family members, and friends who are unvaccinated to please not visit campus at this time. As an additional measure, we will require all guests and members of the Denison community to wear masks indoors at all times unless eating or drinking. Masks will not be required outdoors. All of us at Denison thank you for your support as we work to keep our community safe.
Fall Reunion 2021 Canceled
