Roaring Return FAQs

Student Involvement addresses some frequently asked questions relating to the Roaring Return.

Will there be in-person student events?

Yes. University-sanctioned meetings and events (includes student organizations, fraternities and sororities), will have a maximum capacity that is based on the room occupancy or a maximum of 50 participants (whichever is less). Recreational gatherings (informal events and gatherings that were not sanctioned by the University) will be limited to 10 people. No non-Lindenwood guests will be able to attend any meetings or events. All events must adhere to physical distancing guidelines of 6 feet apart and all attendees are required to wear a face covering. For all University sanctioned events, an attendance sheet must be completed with legible name and student ID number/employee ID number and submitted to TJ Moore tmoore1@lindenwood.edu. The University will comply with regulations established by state and local government entities when determining if and how to hold on-campus events, thus policies are subject to change.

Can we host events or gatherings off campus?

With your safety in mind, unfortunately, no off-campus, university-sanctioned events will be approved for the fall semester.

Will we have to wear a face covering at events and meetings?

Yes. All attendees are required to wear a face covering and maintain physical distancing of 6 feet.

Can we have student organization meetings?

Yes, but they must adhere to the University guidelines on physical distancing, face covering, and maximum occupancy.

Can I come into Student Involvement for a meeting or to visit?

To protect our campus community, we are strongly recommending that all meetings with a Student Involvement staff member will be held via Microsoft Teams.

Will we have LSG elections?

Yes. Elections for the LSG Executive Board will be held online during the first week of classes. Applications will be available on Involve U from July 20 – August 10, 2020. Please direct all questions about LSG Elections to Angie Royal at aroyal@lindenwood.edu.

Will I be able to join a fraternity or sorority this fall?

Yes. The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life will ensure that all interested students have the opportunity to join an organization this fall. All recruitment events will occur virtually or in a hybrid format that adheres to the University guidelines on physical distancing, face covering, and maximum occupancy. Registration for Panhellenic Recruitment and IFC Rush will both open on July 15, 2020. Panhellenic Recruitment is scheduled for September 8 – 12, 2020, and IFC Rush is scheduled for September 14 – 19, 2020. For all recruitment questions, and for students who are interested in participating in membership intake for Alpha Psi Lambda National, Inc., Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. or any of the city-wide NPHC chapters, please contact Carynn Smith at csmith2@lindenwood.edu.

Will we have access to our fraternity and sorority chapter rooms?

Yes. You may not have more than 10 people in the chapter room at a time. You must keep a current visitation log and adhere to physical distancing of 6 feet and wear a face covering.

Can we perform community service?

With your safety in mind, we prefer that only individual virtual or on-campus service be completed this fall.
