Message from Student Affairs about Earthquake

The mid-Atlantic region, along with much of the East Coast, experienced an earthquake this afternoon. We're thankful to report that despite some shaking, all of our students are safe and the campus came through the earthquake with little apparent damage. College Buildings and Grounds staff, aided by Public Safety, has completed an initial inspection of the interior and exterior of our campus buildings. Should there be any signs of damage identified, the College will bring in a structural engineer to determine if the damage is more than cosmetic and what repairs are needed.

All first-year and early return students are safe and all programs continue unaffected. We are monitoring weather reports and will announce any changes to the weekend schedule within the next 24 hours.

From all of us at the College, we hope that you and your family remain safe and well.


Mela Dutka
Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students
