LIBERAL, Kan. – Another semester is underway at Seward County Community College. The first day of classes kicked off on Monday to start the fall semester for the 2021-22 academic year.
Due to an increase in positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, SCCC has safety protocols in place, including a mask requirement while inside campus facilities, limited class sizes and remote learning options.
“We don’t want to focus on COVID although we will do everything we can to keep our doors open and to keep everyone safe,” said Luke Dowell, SCCC vice president, academic affairs. “We want to focus on starting the semester and the success of the students. We are really excited about getting the year going.”
The safety protocols will be reassessed after September and could be loosened if COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations decrease.
To welcome new and returning students, SCCC Student Life is holding a week-long series of events and activities on campus, including a carnival on Tuesday, creating vision boards on Wednesday, brown bag bingo on Thursday and prize giveaways at the Saints Bookstore on Friday.
The campus is back on normal hours and open from 7:45 am to 10 pm Monday through Thursday and 7:45 am to 4:45 pm on Friday.
