Randolph College shares Campus Reopening Plan for spring semester, which starts Feb. 1

Back to School

LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — After keeping classes fully online for the entirety of the fall semester, Randolph College is ready to bring students back to campus for the spring semester, which is not set to start until February.

“Based on the current expectations of the progress of the COVID-19 pandemic and the information we currently have, Randolph College is planning to resume its on-campus, residential operations in spring 2021,” the college’s coronavirus website says.

However, in order to make sure the Randolph College community continues to healthy and safe amid the coronavirus pandemic, school officials say the spring semester will proceed under the policies, procedures, and guidelines detailed in the Campus Reopening Plan.

The college encourages all students, faculty, and staff members to read this reopening plan — which encompasses campus repopulation, monitoring health conditions to detect any infections, containment efforts to prevent the spread of the disease when detected, and shutdown considerations if deemed necessary by severe conditions and/or public health guidance — as well as the Frequently Asked Questions page.

Randolph College also shared some significant dates for the spring semester:

  • Thursday, Jan. 28: Move-in day for first-year students
  • Saturday, Jan. 30 and Sunday, Jan. 31: Move-in day for returning students
  • Monday, Feb. 1: First day of classes

However, before students can return to campus, they are required to sign and return the Housing and Code of Conduct Contract and the Student Health and Safety Pledge.

Those documents can either be emailed to deanofstudents@randolphcollege.edu or mailed to the following address:

Dean of Students
Randolph College
2500 Rivermont Avenue
Lynchburg, VA 24503
