President Hilary Link, Other Allegheny Officials Update Meadville City Council on College’s Plan for Return of Students

President Hilary Link and other Allegheny College officials recently provided Meadville City Council with an overview of the College’s plans for the safe return of students in August. The Meadville Tribune covered the council meeting and published this article, Allegheny College updates city on return of students.

“Covering everything from COVID-19 testing for all students when they arrive to a redesigned semester structure, the outline covered nearly every aspect of college life — including new agreements that students and families would be asked to sign regarding their adherence to coronavirus mitigation efforts,” noted the article by the Tribune’s Mike Crowley.

“We started out with several guiding principles, the most important of which was twofold,” President Hilary Link told council, “to protect the health and safety of our campus community — faculty, staff, students — and simultaneously to protect to the extent possible our local community of Meadville and Crawford County.”
