Early Departure Steps and Tips
Bard College is open for those who need to remain for personal or academic reasons, and understands and supports the decision by those who can do so to return home. The College will also adapt to circumstances as they change. Students who cannot travel, or return to families, or have constraints and needs that are best served by staying on campus, will have a home in Annandale for the duration of the crisis and until the end of the semester. However, those who remain on campus must agree to follow guidelines and instructions issued by the College as well as public health recommendations. This may include types of self-isolation/quarantine procedures. Students who elect to remain must inform the College. They must also inform the College if they decide to leave at any point.

Life in the Residences
The Residential Experience at Bard is lead by our Peer Counselors(PCs) who live alongside students and serve as leaders as well as resources for their residents. From there we have many different opportunities for students to engage in their residence halls, meet new people, and make life-long connections.
