Midwestern Campus Frequently Asked Questions March 13, 2020

Will classes still be held?

Beginning Monday, March 16, classes and seminars for the duration of the spring semester are moving to online (Canvas) delivery. Additionally, we are expanding our student advising teams to assist with any questions, concerns, and guidance.

Are upcoming events on campus still taking place?

Beginning Monday, March 16, we are canceling all official campus events through the end of April. This includes but is not limited to lectures, seminars, and chapels through the end of April.

Can individuals remain on campus at this time?

Informal community interaction can continue as normal. However, we recommend gatherings of people be held outside, when possible.

Further, we are permitting students to remain in campus housing, including the dormitory. Given the nature of dormitory life, students living in the dorm may elect to go home. In the event a student elects to go home, we will credit room and board to their account at a pro-rated amount for the Fall semester. Please email housing@mbts.edu with questions and concerns.

Will the cafeteria and the Student Center be open?

The cafeteria will maintain regular meal-service. This includes warm meals, as served now, but they will be provided in to-go containers.

The common areas of the Mathena Student Center will remain open, with the exception of key carded facilities (rec and fitness facilities).

Will the library be open?

Given the difficulty with cleaning books, the library will be closed for individual access. The staff will be accessible via phone and email and will assist students in accessing resources.

Will Graduation ceremonies still take place?

Graduation will occur as scheduled unless we provide further guidance. This will be the next scheduled seminary event.
