Campus Life

Hood aims to facilitate a positive student experience by encouraging exploration, engagement and leadership through programming and involvement opportunities. 

Code of Conduct

The Hood College Student Code of Conduct has been amended to ensure compliance with COVID-19 protocols and policies, and may be further amended at any time to respond to evolving internal and external factors. These changes to the Code of Conduct presume that students will take responsibility for their behavior and hold their peers accountable for being good citizens. They address behaviors that could negatively impact other community members by increasing their risk of COVID-19 transmission while on campus. All students, prior to arrival on campus, are expected to read and thoroughly familiarize themselves with all COVID-19 polices and procedures.

Student Engagement & Activities

While campus events and activities will take a different format this year, our student engagement staff is excited to roll out new ways to keep students engaged, from virtual events to physically distanced events on the Quad. We are committed to providing programming that encourages a fun and inclusive environment.

Athletics

After careful consideration of internal and external circumstances and with the health and well-being of each campus and community in mind, the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Presidents made the difficult decision to suspend all intercollegiate athletics competition through the fall semester in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The MAC Presidents are well aware of the important role athletics plays in the lives of student-athletes and are committed to exploring creative approaches and alternatives that will provide future competitive experiences for fall sport student-athletes in the spring semester as circumstances allow. More information about this decision can be found here.
