Fall 2020 Opening

Visitors to Campus

What are the policies for a parent visiting a student during the fall semester?

Parents and family members are welcome to visit HWS and Geneva this fall but we ask that when they do, that they not enter residence halls and that they do a self-wellness screening before stepping on campus. Visitors from states on the New York quarantine list at the time of visit would need to follow quarantine guidelines.


Will students’ friends from other colleges or universities be allowed to visit campus this fall?

No. We are asking that students have no visitors from other schools.


Will Homecoming and Family Weekend happen this fall?

This year’s Homecoming and Family Weekend will be virtual, offering nearly a week of interactive experiences that will bring the flavor and energy of campus to you. All family members and alums are encouraged to join the fun from wherever you call home.

There is no cost to enjoy any of our Homecoming and Family Weekend programs. If you’re viewing this website, you have almost everything you need to participate. We strongly encourage you to download Zoom on your computer or mobile device because most of our events will use this platform.
