Scots Strong:
Re-opening Gordon

With courage and care, Gordon College is committed to re-opening campus this fall.
If we’ve learned anything from a season of remote living and learning—particularly one in which the challenges have been compounded by crises—it’s that we need one another. Community matters. Gordon is committed to re-opening this fall because we believe in the importance of learning, growing, processing and engaging with one another in community. And we will do so with great caution and care for the well-being of the individuals in both our campus and local communities.

Important next steps for students—please take action now

1. Confirm your plans for the initial COVID-19 diagnostic test. Please complete this form as soon as possible to indicate whether you plan to complete your test prior to arriving on campus (the preferred option) or you plan to schedule a test on campus. Your response helps immensely with the many details of re-opening planning.

2. Share your academic preferences. We understand that some students may prefer primarily virtual instruction, and others may prefer to be in the classroom as much as possible. While we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate every request, we will make every effort. As of today, new and returning students can access a form under the “Academics” tab in my.gordon.edu, where they can share their intentions, preferences and justification. A team will be reviewing responses and following up with students as quickly as possible.

3. Sign up for move-in. In keeping with a measured and safe process for new and returning students to move into their rooms on campus, all students are required to sign up for a move-in time slot. For new students and families, this will apply to the traditional Gathering of Affirmation and Assurance program as well. Move-in sign-up forms ➔
