Important Update for Student Organization Leaders - Monday, September 14, 2020

September 14, 2020

Dear Student Leaders: Thank you for the extraordinary effort you are all putting forward to promote student involvement while maintaining safe and healthy efforts.

We continue to monitor COVID-19 rates on campus after the Labor Day holiday. Yesterday's released data show cases overall being down, and we need to ensure that we are generally seeing a downward trend through the end of this week. We know that many of you are eager to resume in-person events and gatherings this week, but we have made the difficult decision to extend the suspension of student organizations' in-person events and gatherings while we continue to monitor rates after the Labor Day holiday. The tents that we mentioned previously will continue to be available for informal gatherings of groups of ten or less students.

We continue to appreciate your understanding and willingness to put forward the health and safety of the entire campus community as our shared priority. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue using virtual modes of communication to engage, activate and advance student involvement. Thank you very much for coming Together As Buckeyes to fight COVID-19.
