UTICA, N.Y. --- Utica College Provost and Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs Todd Pfannestiel said students will be greeted by a number of changes in the coming weeks.

"When they come back we will have all of the guidelines in place about wearing masks in the classroom, that will be required. Likewise maintaining social distancing so you won't have students sitting directly next to each other. And at the same time be sure we control the flow in the hallways so we don't have large gatherings of students and staff at a single place." said Pfannestiel. 

Students will be welcomed back one week early to allow students to get oriented with the new changes. Each student will be tested when they arrive on campus using a rapid testing method. Students will see results within 15 minutes.

If there is a positive case on campus, students will be quarantined at the former Burrstone house across the street. Students will be able to work remotely on their schoolwork. 

Classes will resume on August 24th and go through thanksgiving break. After that, the rest of the semester will be conducted remotely including finals.
