Pacers are Prepared
It’s been quite a year for us all. With the help of all of our students, faculty and staff, WPU finished the year strong. Now, the warm weather is here, commencement has been celebrated, and we are getting ready for a summer semester.
During this summer, we are excited to have hundreds of students enrolled in online classes and we will be hard at work preparing to welcome our new and returning Pacers to campus this fall! We will continue to monitor Federal, State and local regulations and incorporate any changes into our planning—to ensure the health and safety of our WPU community. This is our first priority.
- Our current plans for the fall semester include the following:
- In-person instruction, open residential housing
- WPU offices and buildings return to normal operations
- Facilities with increased capacity (library, gym, dining, etc.)
- A more normal schedule of activities and events.
While the news and COVID-19 information continue to show very promising signs and the rollout of the vaccine increases, we must continue to remain vigilant. We strongly encourage you to get the vaccine if you have not already done so. This will assure we can resume as close to normal activities in the Fall. Our ability to “open up” the campus experience will be directly correlated to the number of community members who are vaccinated – so please find your spot and get your shot (https://myspot.nc.gov/).
