Starting Wednesday, March 18 until Thursday, April 9, LVC will move all classes to remote learning because of COVID-19.

All in-person classes are canceled March 16 and 17 for faculty training. Students were asked to vacate residence halls by Sunday, March 15. All College-related domestic and international travel is prohibited until further notice unless approved by Provost Cowart or President Thayne, and LVC Live was postponed.

In addition, the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) has suspended conference and non-conference athletic contests, on- or off-campus, March 16–30. Athletes should leave campus with all other students and await notification on the next steps from the Athletic Department.

Study abroad programs and other LVC-sponsored international travel are under consideration for suspension or postponement. Internships for credit, clinicals, and student teaching assignments will continue if the host institution is open for business.

The College says it will communicate as far in advance as we can about Inquiry, Commencement, New Student Advising Days, and other end-of-semester events.
