Camp Blue

The University has announced a number of measures to protect the health and safety of our community from the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We continue to be committed to protecting the health and safety of our campus, our community and beyond. 

The 2020 Camp Blue program has been cancelled to mitigate safety concerns in lieu of COVID-19. Once the fall arrival plan has been finalized and approved by the university and Public Health officials, details and other pertinent information regarding move-in and welcome weekend programming will be communicated to students and parents.
