Congratulations on your decision to join the Spring incoming class! We look forward to officially welcoming you and your family to our community soon. For students joining our residential program, this page will help outline important information to prepare for your arrival to campus. For students joining our online program, you will also find important information about supports and resource available to you.
Please note the following:
The details noted here represent our current plans as of mid-November. Due to shifting COVID-19 realities there may be some modifications that we are required to make as we get closer to our program start times. Please check-in with this page for updates and make sure you are checking your Landmark College email regularly. If you have any questions, please contact Student Affairs at 802-387-6714 or contact us at CampusLife@landmark.edu.
For students joining our residential program: New Student Orientation is scheduled to start on Monday, January 25. Our orientation programming will be delivered virtually the first week to support engagement while students are quarantining here on-campus or at home in preparation for arrival to campus. Strong engagement in Orientation programs helps to ensure students are familiar with key resources and staff prior to starting the academic program; these programs also provide a critical opportunity to connect with peers. As such, it is important to note that students are required to attend all aspects of Orientation.
On most days Orientation programs will begin at 9 a.m. Eastern and required sessions will end by 4 p.m. Eastern. Peer Orientation leaders will be offering a number of evening social events online. While these evening programs are largely optional, you are strongly encouraged to engage here and take advantage of the opportunity to connect with your peers and explore spring programs and clubs.
Once students complete their required on-campus quarantine and COVID testing, our Orientation team will also be offering a series of face to face programs and tours to help support connection to campus life. Programs will be offered during the week of February 1 and again during the week of February 8.
For students joining our online program: We have customized a New Student Orientation program for you to support connection with your academic team and larger community engagement. Your Orientation is scheduled to start on Monday, February 1.
In early January we will publish as series of optional Family Orientation workshops. These workshops will mostly take place in the evenings and provide an important opportunity for families to learn more about Orientation programming for students, ask questions about arrival to campus and quarantine procedures, and receive additional guidance on how to support their students from afar. While these workshops are option, families are strongly encouraged to attend these sessions.
ARRIVAL TO CAMPUS:
Update guidance on return to campus plans will be issued on or around December 7, 2020. All students will be required to register for an arrival time, please keep monitoring your Landmark College email for more information about the return to campus and how to register for an arrival time. Questions in the interim? Please contact Kelly O’Ryan, Dean of Students, at KellyORyan@landmark.edu.
Students who are traveling to Vermont with people from multiple households, via bus, rail or commercial airlines, or who cannot effectively complete a quarantine at home should expect to arrive on campus around January 22 – 23 to quarantine on campus.
Students who can travel to campus in a private vehicle without making a prolonged stop (avoid gatherings such as restaurants, limit gas stops, and if overnight travel is required to reduce social contacts), can quarantine at home for 14 days and plan to travel to campus between February 4 – 6.
All students will receive a COVID test upon arrival, complete a room quarantine until in receipt of a negative test result (typically 24 – 36 hour quarantine), and receive a follow-up test on Day 7. More information on our testing and quarantine procedures will be sent via email in early December. Please note that dates and requirements are subject to change based on updated guidance from the Vermont Department of Health.
NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION SCHEDULES:
New Student and Family Orientation schedules will be posted here by Monday, January 11; these schedules will also be sent out via email.
