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 number of participants as deemed safe by the Pandemic Preparedness Task Force. 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 in-person student organization meetings and events, attendance must be taken using the Checkpoint app or in Involve U. For more information, please visit the "Attendance" page in the Student Organization Information Canvas shell. 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?
Off-campus, university-sanctioned events will be considered on a case-by-case basis for the spring semester. After submitting the event in Involve U, a meeting may be scheduled to gather additional information to determine if the event can safely be hosted.
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?
Yes, however, 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 in April. Applications will be available on Involve U in March. Please direct all questions about LSG Elections to Angie Royal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will I be able to join a fraternity or sorority this year?
Yes. The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life will ensure that all interested students have the opportunity to join an organization this year. 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. 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 Christian Thompson at email@example.com.
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. Off-campus community service will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Angie Royal at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss off-campus community service your organization would like to participate in.
