Update for Current Students

March 30, 2020

Resident Students,

As we continue to navigate through this unprecedented time, I am touching base with you to provide you with a few updates. We continue to update www.lewisu.edu/covid-19 with information specific to student residents still on campus.

We understand that your circumstances might have changed since the last time we asked for you to request staying on campus for the remainder of the semester. Later today, our university alert service will send you a text message to ask you to verify your residential status. We would appreciate it if you could reply to the text message. This will help if an emergency situation occurs on campus.

Last week our LUPD Chief of Police Mike Zegadlo emailed information on social distancing as well as the Illinois Stay-at-Home Order. I want to remind you to please continue to follow these directives; these are put in place to protect you and fight against the spread of Covid-19. During this period, students are prohibited from having guests on campus, and all University Policies are in place and will be enforced by campus officials. You are reminded that through the end of the Spring 2020 semester, the residence halls are closed except to those with extenuating circumstances.

One other request we’re asking from you today is for your assistance with planning for our Dining Services. Please go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LZNN96B and fill out the survey about Sodexo dining services. Completing this survey is your best way to influence Sodexo menus and hours.
