Hood College has modified the fall 2020 calendar, with the goal to reduce travel to and from campus, avoid large gatherings and thereby reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Hood has expanded student move-in over several days, reducing congestion and encouraging physical distancing in residence halls. All students will be able to sign up for a move-in time in late July. As much as possible, students should limit the number of family and friends who help them move in.
