Weekly COVID-19 Surveillance Testing
Apr 5 @ 1:00pm

Wells College COVID-19 Surveillance Testing

(Required for all students/employees who physically come to campus)

Mondays: 1:00–5:00 p.m.
Tuesdays: 1:00–5:00 p.m.
Stratton Hall, 3rd Floor Atrium

Regular campus-wide COVID-19 surveillance testing allows us to quickly limit potential spread and promote a healthy campus. As part of the Wells Together Community Care Pledge, all students and employees who physically come to campus for any reason have committed to get COVID-19 tested weekly and this will be strictly enforced.

Any COVID-19 testing temporary waivers or extenuating circumstances must be requested and pre-approved by the COVID-19 Coordinator by contacting jrowe@wells.edu.

Remember:

  • Daily screening will be checked.
  • Registration is required. (Check your email inbox for the link.)
  • Time-specific appointments allowed first (to decrease wait times)
  • Reciving the COVID-19 vaccine does not trigger a COVID-19 positive test result, and is not proven yet to completely prevent transmission -- so you still need to do your weekly COVID-19 test.

Please contact the COVID-19 coordinator, Jonathan Rowe, at jrowe@wells.edu if you have any questions or need any assistance.

Nicole Minton '09
"Can You Hear Me? How to Find, Keep and Preserve Your Authentic Voice"

In this presentation, Nicole Minton '09 will discuss the importance of remaining true to yourself in every facet of your life. We all must navigate many spaces in society such as work, school, relationships, etc. that may push or pull us into many directions, leaving us to question who we are. Some circumstances are beyond our control—but the one thing we do have control of is who we want to be. Together, we will explore tokenism, imposter syndrome and ultimately how to find, keep and preserve your authentic voice.

"Sommer Smash"
Apr 9 @ 6:00pm

Hello All,

With the goal of providing more opportunities for students to safely gather and share time together, the Collegiate Cabinet and Division of Student Affairs are co-sponsoring an event we are calling the "Sommer Smash," this Friday, April 9 at the Sommer Center.

"What exactly is Sommer Smash? Is it a dance? A social?!" We're glad you asked.

Sommer Smash is a social event for students to sit down, relax, compete in fun trivia, and hang out while listening to music in the Upper portion of Sommer Center. Seating areas will be arranged to allow for social distancing and the room capacity under COVID will be observed.

For those students who are 21 and up, there will be a special VIP section with a bar and a set drink list. There will also be a snack area at the event and prizes for trivia. Downstairs, the Well will remain open as it is normally.

Drink Tickets: Students 21 and over will receive a limit of 3 drink tickets for the evening. You are not permitted to share tickets since the limit is three per student. Drink options include a drink dedicated to this year's graduating class named The Oddwina.
Drink selections:
Angry Orchard Hard Cider
Chardonnay
The Oddwina - blueberry juice with vodka, edible glitter, lemon sour juice

"How is this going to work!?" Another excellent question.

The event is in the Sommer Center this Friday, April 9, with two times available for RSVP: the first from 6 - 7:45pm and the second from 8-9:45pm. Pre-registration is required by going to this website: Sommer Smash Registration All attendees will be required to be COVID tested on Friday, prior to the event. Times and locations for testing will be sent after successful registration.

For each time slot there will be ONLY 26 seats available for the bar area. Students will have IDs checked upon entry and will receive a bracelet and will be able to proceed into the bar area. 30 spots will be available for those who are not eligible or do not wish to go into the bar area.

We want to keep bringing you events like this, and the only way to do that is to make sure everyone acts responsibly. During this event, please ensure that you are abiding by our Student Conduct Policies. Below are some policies that we would like to highlight at this event as a reminder of our alcohol policies: Student Handbook

Public intoxication: Public intoxication or drunken behavior which results in the destruction of property, or conduct that is disorderly, disruptive and/or disrespectful to any member of the campus community.

If you have any questions regarding violations, policies, student conduct questions, please reach out to the Director of Residence Life and Student Conduct: vtackman@wells.edu

Arthur J. Bellinzoni, Ph.D. is an Aurora resident and professor emeritus of religion at Wells College. He has published several books on Christianity and is always informative and thought-provoking.

Regular campus-wide COVID-19 surveillance testing allows us to quickly limit potential spread and promote a healthy campus. As part of the Wells Together Community Care Pledge, all students and employees who physically come to campus for any reason have committed to get COVID-19 tested weekly and this will be strictly enforced.

Any COVID-19 testing temporary waivers or extenuating circumstances must be requested and pre-approved by the COVID-19 Coordinator by contacting jrowe@wells.edu.

Remember:

  • Daily screening will be checked.
  • Registration is required. (Check your email inbox for the link.)
  • Time-specific appointments allowed first (to decrease wait times)
  • Reciving the COVID-19 vaccine does not trigger a COVID-19 positive test result, and is not proven yet to completely prevent transmission -- so you still need to do your weekly COVID-19 test.

Please contact the COVID-19 coordinator, Jonathan Rowe, at jrowe@wells.edu if you have any questions or need any assistance.
