Think Fall!

To students and faculty:

We are happy to announce that Western Connecticut State University is planning for a Fall semester that returns us to normal in-person instruction, a full athletics schedule, performing arts in our theatres, and the chance to gather and interact in real life.

Recent developments suggest that the national rollout of vaccinations can be accomplished before the start of next semester and progress in the state of Connecticut is very encouraging. We will, of course, follow the guidance of the Connecticut Department of Public Health and the CSCU system office to ensure safety, and pivot as needed, but at the moment, we are planning for an August opening that will allow us to celebrate the Fall and return to a full university experience.

Until then, stay vigilant in your health and safety practices.  We cannot wait to welcome you to campus.
