Spring 2021 Opening

Visitors to Campus

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

While we understand that parents and family members want to visit, at least until a vaccine is widely available, we prefer that parents and family members stay home. Doing so protects our students and campus community as well as parents and families.

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

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

What are the spectator policies for HWS athletics events?

While we understand that parents and families want to support their student-athlete, at this time, we do not permit spectators at any home HWS athletics event. Our teams and visiting teams have strict testing regimens, masking protocols and travel policies in order to compete and protect our campus community. We encourage families to follow our teams at www.HWSAthletics.com.
