Campus update for July 14, 2020

July 14, 2020

Dear students,

The Augustana Strong Task Force report you got on Friday had a lot of information to digest.

Some important parts to note:

The academic calendar has changed. You now have the option not to return to campus after Thanksgiving.

Classes will be held on Labor Day (Sept. 7); a day previously scheduled for fall break (Oct. 19); and the day before Thanksgiving (Nov. 25).

The week after Thanksgiving (Nov. 30-Dec. 4) will be a study week for students in semester-long courses.

Second seven-week courses will meet virtually the week after Thanksgiving.

Finals (Dec. 7-11) can be done from a distance.

Also, here is the detailed information about fall semester from Residential Life and Dining Services.

Please use this form for follow-up questions.

Today's updates:

• Watch for a message from Residential Life this week about move-in.

• If you are near campus and happen to see a lot of police in the area tomorrow, don't worry. The Rock Island County Sheriff's Department will be training.

• TLA houses that have been turned over to Facilities Services will be rented as off-campus senior housing for the coming school year, available immediately.

A five-bedroom duplex for $400 per tenant is available; it could be a three-person duplex at $500 per month. A single bedroom in a duplex that already has two female residents also is available at $400. Contact Trisha Hines-Morrison.
