Goldey-Beacom announces spring schedule
Wilmington – Goldey-Beacom College (GBC) today announced an update to the spring 2021 semester. Official move-in for undergraduate students will take place January 8-10, 2021.
Undergraduate classes will begin the week of January 11, 2021. Day classes will operate fully in the classroom while evening classes will be in hybrid format, meeting 50 percent in the classroom and 50 percent online. Additionally, some classes have been earmarked as fully online. Graduate classes will offer both hybrid and online formats.
GBC spring athletic teams (baseball, softball, tennis, golf and track & field) are slated to proceed with their season while fall and winter teams will have regular practice but no intercollegiate competition. The College will follow appropriate testing protocols consistent with NCAA and CDC guidance.
Goldey-Beacom’s reopening comes on the heels of a $30M campus construction and renovation project. “Our students deserve a memorable college experience. That means opening our residence halls, especially the newest one – Franta Hall, as well as the newly renovated dining facilities for residents, staff and faculty,” said Dr. Colleen Perry Keith in a statement. “We have carefully made our reopening decisions with the understanding and knowledge that all appropriate COVID19 controls are in place and will be utilized by everyone on campus.”
While the College has made the decision to reopen for the spring semester, it is understood that state or federal governance can overrule these decisions if the pandemic worsens in the coming weeks and months.
