Bear wearing a mask

Event Director Program

Ursinus College empowers students to take responsibility for their environment including when socializing.  It is up to each and every individual to make good choices regarding their own personal hygiene and socializing as those choices can and will impact the health and safety of our entire campus community. 

Due to CoVid-19, there will be no registered events during Fall 2020.

Ursinus College has determined that registered social events on campus in the residence halls will not be possible to be hosted safely, given the CDC guidelines and space constraints of campus.

For the health and safety of the entire community, students are expected to:

  • Wear a mask at all times when not in own room or with Family Unit
  • Remain 6 feet from others who are outside of their Family Unit at all times
  • Avoid large group gatherings, especially indoors.  Congregating in groups in indoor communal areas of campus is prohibited in any space that cannot accommodate at least six feet of physical distancing.
  • Students hosting unregistered events will be in violation of the Student Code of Conduct and subject to the student conduct process.

 2020-2021 Ursinus College Student Guidelines
for Living with COVID

“Family units” are defined as students who are grouped together to live communally based on their residence hall assignments. Within your family unit, you can socialize more freely, practice less physical distancing and remove masks. This is analogous to how you might behave while living at home with your family during the pandemic and provides the opportunity to engage with residential acquaintances in a less restrictive manner.

As always, underage students found possessing or consuming alcohol will be documented and subject to the student conduct process.

If 21 years or older: Students who are at least 21 years old can consume alcohol in their own room and with their family unit only. Large group gatherings are not permitted. 

Per the Student Code of Conduct, purposeful binge drinking through drinking games and binge drinking paraphernalia are not permitted at any time. Given what we know about CoVid-19, students found participating in drinking games or using binge drinking paraphernalia will be viewed as especially egregious now given the ease of contamination via this manner of alcohol consumption.

Here the WHY behind the decision for no events this fall
