Senior administrators at Erskine—led by our president, Dr. Robert Gustafson—continue working diligently to ensure that our campus is well prepared as the COVID-19 situation develops.

Senior staff members, along with representatives from our Aramark staff (who provide dining and facilities services to our campus), are working together to monitor and assess information from South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) so that we respond appropriately to emerging recommendations and directives.

Erskine is moving forward to finish the spring semester and see our seniors graduate. We are offering classes in an online format.

The Student Development team will continue to update students and their families, and Erskine faculty and staff members will also receive updates.

Message To Students - 4/20/2020

Erskine,

Hello everyone! I hope you are all able to get outside and enjoy this beautiful weather. I know we are practicing social distancing, but you can still sit outside on your porch in a rocking chair, take a walk with your dog, go running, or take your laptop outside to do your work. I encourage you to use this unique time to slow down, reflect on what’s important in life, and enjoy the blessings God has given you.

For this week’s update, I’d like to draw your attention to the attached pictures of the new townhouses under construction. Much work has been done during the past several weeks. The progress is exciting to see, and we are thrilled to be able to add this new option to student housing. We are looking forward to your return to campus in the fall to see the finished product!

I’d also like to let you know that Due West Family Medicine now has Telehealth capabilities. Our counselor, Cameron Hipp, can use Telehealth to hold counseling sessions with Erskine students. If you would like to speak with our counselor, please contact Due West Family Medicine at 864-379-2345 and ask for Cameron. She will be happy to schedule an appointment.

Please continue to check your Erskine email regularly as we try to keep you as informed and connected with Erskine as we can. We miss you!

Take care and stay safe!

Hello, Erskine.

I hope you and your family are well and that you were able to celebrate Easter together, even if it was in an unaccustomed way.

The move-out process is still on hold. Once we are able to resume the process, you will receive information from the residence life staff regarding sign-ups for removing your personal belongings from the residence halls.

We continue to communicate with the Department of Education regarding the details of the remittance. Thank you for your patience.

Please follow the Office of Campus Life through email and social media for virtual activities to help you stay connected.

Please check your Erskine email daily for important information and updates. You are in our thoughts and prayers and we look forward to the time we can all be together on campus again.

Stay safe.

Hello, Erskine Community.

I hope you are doing well as we all continue to adjust to these challenging times. Here are a few items of importance for you.

  • You can expect an email later this week from Erskine College Provost Dr. Tom Hellams concerning commencement, diplomas for seniors, caps and gowns for seniors, and transcripts.
  • Since the final eight convocation/chapel opportunities were canceled, all students will receive credit for those opportunities. Since eight is the required number of sessions, all students will receive full credit for convocation attendance and no convo fines will be charged.
  • Please watch for messages through social media from Sarah Smith in Campus Life, who is offering a variety of online activities to keep students engaged and connected.
  • Earlier today, Governor McMaster issued a directive that all South Carolinians should stay home unless it is necessary to be out for essentials. Therefore, we will place the remainder of the scheduled move-outs on hold for the time being. Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 7, will be the last day students will be able to return to campus during their scheduled times and move personal belongings out, until further notice. Once this order has been lifted, we will communicate with you to reschedule a time for you to retrieve your personal belongings.

As you know, the COVID-19 situation is changing daily. At times, our processes will need to change as well. Please check your Erskine email account regularly to stay informed. We miss having you on campus and we continue to pray for you and your families. Stay safe.

Blessings,

Dr. Santee

Dear Erskine students:

The senior leadership team at Erskine announced a necessary plan for shifting from classroom to online instruction on Thursday, March 12 due to COVID-19 and growing concerns for the safety of the college community. The initial plan for educational delivery was announced as continuing through at least Friday, April 3 with the hope of returning to the classroom on Monday, April 6. I write today to communicate that returning to classroom instruction this semester is no longer possible.

The senior team has now made the carefully considered decision to continue instruction through the end of the semester using several modes of delivery already chosen and implemented by our faculty members. This presents continuing challenges for you as students and the administration and faculty are grateful for your efforts.

I encourage you to check communication daily, observe due dates, submit assignments and tests, and work with the faculty in every way possible to complete the semester. It is your responsibility to fulfil every requirement. Let’s finish well.

I regret the necessity of informing seniors, family, and friends that commencement will not take place in Due West as previously scheduled on May 2. The senior team is continuing to monitor COVID-19 with the hope of scheduling commencement at a later date once the period of escalation and danger related to the pandemic has subsided. Please monitor communication over the days and weeks ahead for updated information.

Please click on the video below for update from President Gustafson

 

Sincerely,

Tom Hellams

Message To Students - 3/30/2020

Dear Erskine students,

By now you should have received an email from Erskine College Provost Dr. Tom Hellams informing you that we will continue online classes for the remainder of the semester.

In addition to remaining online for coursework during the remainder of this academic semester, we have also made the decision to delay commencement. As you know, commencement was scheduled for Saturday, May 2. We understand that this decision is very difficult and disappointing for our seniors and their families. However, because of the ongoing COVID-19 public health threat, we believe that assembling for a ceremony May 2 would not be safe for participants.

We are committed to providing an alternative event to honor you for your achievements and to celebrate your success. Thank you to all the seniors who have completed the survey asking for feedback regarding options for an alternative commencement celebration. As soon as we make a decision, we will inform you with plenty of advance notice for you and your family to make plans.

All residential students will receive an email from Coordinator for Residence Life and Housing Samuel Barrick within the next few hours giving specific directions regarding the procedure for you to retrieve your personal belongings from the residence halls. This will be a strategic process as we continue to follow official guidelines regarding limitations on group gatherings. In everyone’s best interest, all students must cooperate and comply with these instructions.  If you still have questions after receiving Mr. Barrick’s message, please contact the Office of Student Development, and we will be happy to help you.

Erskine College will provide remittances to students for room and board at a prorated level and is currently processing them as expeditiously as possible. Remittances for room and board will be prorated from March 16 to May 2, and students who are eligible will have their accounts adjusted when they have been processed.

Many members of our Erskine family have reached out to ask what they can do to help our students and the college continue our academic mission, including donating room and board remittances to Erskine as a tax-deductible philanthropic gift. If you are interested in giving your remittance to the Annual Fund, please email Paul Bell, paul.bell@erskine.edu.

This is certainly not the way any of us thought the spring semester would end, but God has been with us and will continue to be with us every step of the way.  Each of you will remain in our prayers. You are all a part of our Erskine family, and we look forward to being together again.

Blessings,

Dr. Santee

Good afternoon!

After the announcement earlier today, I know many of you are concerned about how you will return to campus to retrieve your belongings. I want to emphasize that the residence halls are still open. Some students are still living on campus while completing their coursework. We will allow students to pick up their belongings in an orderly way so that we can be sure to protect both those of you returning to campus and those who are still on campus.

Students who desire to check out of housing must contact their Resident Director to schedule a date and time to come to campus and check out. Check-outs will begin Wednesday, April 2. There will be three windows to check out each day: 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. until 3:00 pm, and 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm. Students who do not contact their RD ahead of time will not be allowed into the building and may be subject to an improper checkout fine.

Only a few students on each floor will be allowed in each time slot to maintain the guidelines set by the SCDHEC and the CDC. The breaks between the time slots will also allow staff time to sanitize the public spaces. Resident Directors will work with each student to find the time that works best. When contacting your RD, please indicate what days and times you would prefer.

When returning to campus for your belongings, keep in mind that Governor Henry McMaster has issued an executive order prohibiting gatherings of three or more people. Those found to be in violation of this order may be given a ticket for a misdemeanor by local law enforcement. Please do not bring more than two people with you to campus to assist you.

 

Please remember that what we have asked of you, especially since we moved to online classes, is that you communicate with us. All fobs for those who are not on campus are currently deactivated, but we will activate fob access for any student who has communicated when they can be expected on campus. Remember to make smart decisions by following appropriate social distancing and handwashing protocols. Also, please be patient and courteous with others as we all work through this together.

Forgotten how to get in touch with your Resident Director since you have been gone?

Shaq Hunter, RD for Carnegie and Edwards Halls – Hunter@erskine.edu

Grant Lawson, RD for Grier, Pressly, and McQuiston Halls – Lawson@erskine.edu

Kyle Keesling, RD for Bonner Hall – kkeesling@erskine.edu

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of us.

Director of Residence Life

Message To Students - 3/21/2020

Erskine students,

It’s time for the weekly update we’ve promised you regarding Erskine’s response to the COVID-19 situation. First, I want you all to know that we miss those of you who have left campus. We hope that all of you, at home or on campus, are doing well and have adjusted well to the online delivery of your coursework.

The decision was made March 12 for Erskine to move to the online delivery of coursework beginning Monday, March 16, and continuing through Friday, April 3, with the intention of returning to on-campus classes Monday, April 6. That decision has not been changed. We continue to monitor the situation daily and follow the recommendations of the CDC, DHEC, and the World Health Organization, as well as those of our state and federal government.

Some have asked whether Erskine will be continuing online classes for the remainder of the semester. We are committed to protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our students, faculty and staff, and we are also committed to keeping you informed. We will communicate a decision regarding the remainder of the semester as well as a decision regarding commencement, on or before March 30.

Please continue to follow all the recommended guidelines for health and safety.

Message To Students - 3/18/2020

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster has announced a new mandate that will impact Erskine College’s food service. He stated that, beginning March 18, all restaurants and businesses within the state of South Carolina must suspend all dine-in food services. Therefore, as of March 18, Aramark Food Service at Erskine College will be providing carryout meals instead of dine-in services. This means that no Erskine College students, faculty, or staff will be able to eat inside Moffatt Dining Hall until further notice.

Meals can be picked up at Moffatt during the following hours:

Monday through Friday
8:00 a.m. until 9:30 a.m.
11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
5:00 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.

Saturday and Sunday
8:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m.
12:00 p.m. until 1:00 p.m.
5:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.

Please understand that this is our only option for providing the Erskine community food for the foreseeable future. We appreciate your flexibility in understanding the College’s situation, in this case, determined by the government and the medical community.

Lastly, please remember the words of Governor McMaster this evening. He implored us to “be courteous, be smart.” As we adjust our daily lives to help prevent the spread of a virus that may impact others more than ourselves, be patient with each other, and remain diligent in the practicing the recommended social distancing techniques, which are important for everyone’s protection.

Message To Students - 3/17/2020

Erskine students,

If you will be staying on campus while Erskine classroom instruction is delivered online, there are some guidelines and policy adjustments you should be aware of.  Please be aware that you are expected to be diligent and responsible in following these guidelines, which are encouraged by the government, CDC, and medical community.

Take normal preventative measures, including:

  • Wash hands frequently
  • Cough or sneeze into elbow
  • Maintain healthy eating and sleeping habits
  • Use disinfectant wipes
  • Practice “Social Distancing”
  • If you are not feeling well, do not go to Moffatt and please be sure to call Due West Family Medicine at 864-379-2345 to schedule an appointment.  Do not stop in without calling in advance.

What does “Social Distancing” mean?  This virus is unique in that a person can have it without knowing it.  That’s why social distancing is so important, for your safety as well as the safety of others you could unknowingly spread it to.

  • Do not gather in large groups (limit groups to two or three people)
  • Avoid crowded environments both on and off campus
  • Maintain a distance of 6 feet from other people where ever you are
  • Avoid physical contact

Moffatt will be open for food service. Please consider limiting your exposure by staying on campus for meals instead of traveling to restaurants.  Please practice social distancing in Moffatt as well, by not sitting in large groups.

All offices are open for normal business hours, but as classes are not meeting in person, please avoid in-person visits to campus offices. Please attempt to resolve any issues through email or phone.

Once you have made a decision to stay or leave during this time, please stick to that choice. In order to keep the community healthy, we would like to prevent people coming and going from campus.

The following policies will be in effect, during this period of time:

  • Students will keep the residence halls secure. Doors must never be propped open.
  • A no-visitation policy will be in effect for student rooms in order to maintain social  distancing. Members of the campus community may have visitation in campus public spaces, such as the kitchen and main lobby of each residence hall. Visitors from off campus will not be allowed in the residence hall at any time in order to limit campus community exposure.
  • Erskine College is an alcohol-free campus, and students will not have alcohol of any kind in their rooms or in the residence halls.
  • The campus will continue to be monitored by Erskine College Police Department during this time.
  • The dining hall will remain open for meal service. If there are any changes in service hours, communication will be sent to students through email.
  • Students are completely responsible for their conduct in the residence halls.
  • There will not be a Resident Assistant on duty and there may not be one in the residence hall during this time. Resident Directors will be available and a Resident Director will still be on call at (864) 378-9091.
  • Access will be very limited to campus buildings, other than your specific residence hall, Watkins, the Library and Moffatt Dining Hall during this period of time. Fobs will be deactivated for anyone who has not communicated with the Office of Student Development regarding plans to remain on campus during this period of time.  Students who have not stayed on campus but need to return to their residence hall room for any reason, must contact the Office of Student Development by calling 864-379-8701 or by emailing nino@erskine.edu to make arrangements.
  • A student may be asked to leave the residence hall immediately and/or be fined if they are in violation of any of these policies.

Thank you for your cooperation. Please check your Erskine email frequently and contact us with your questions.

Update as of March 12, 2020. Erskine College has reached a decision in response to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation. We are taking these actions in light of a recent situation in which an Erskine student was evaluated by medical personnel in cooperation with DHEC. DHEC did not recommend testing the student for COVID-19 but sent the student home for a minimum of two weeks. In light of heightened concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19, we are taking prudent action with the intent of protecting the well-being and health of our students, faculty, and staff.  Therefore:

  • All on-campus classes will be suspended beginning tomorrow, March 13th and will resume on April 6th.
  • Effective Monday, March 16, all course instruction will be delivered completely online. No classes will meet on campus until at least April 6 as we continue to monitor this situation.
  • Faculty will contact students over the next few days regarding the shift to online delivery for their specific courses. Students are responsible for checking their Erskine email.
  • If you are unable to go home during this period, you are required to complete the online form to advise the Office of Student Development of your intention to stay on campus by 5 p.m. Sunday, March 15.
  • Moffatt Dining Hall will be open for limited meal service for students who stay on campus.
  • All activities, including athletics, convocation, chapel, and student-related events are suspended until further notice.

Please continue to check your Erskine email daily. All information regarding COVID-19 will be communicated through Erskine email and our COVID-19 webpage.

The health and safety of our Erskine community is of the utmost importance to us. Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we walk through this difficult time together.

A Message From Erskine Athletics - 3/11/2020

Meanwhile, should any of our students have serious concerns regarding athletic participation which are related to COVID-19, we will encourage them to make the best decisions for their health and safety.

Message to Students - 3/9/2020

Erskine Community,

In an effort to keep you informed of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation in the United States, we want to make you aware of a few things.

  • Erskine College has developed a task force which has been meeting for the past several weeks to prepare and plan for the campus response to the COVID-19 virus and its potential impact to the Erskine community.
  • You will receive an email update every Monday informing you of any new information related to the virus or any additional instructions, and additional messages will go out if there is anything urgent to report.
  • Erskine’s task force continues to work with the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control, to monitor information from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, and to stay in touch with local and county emergency management as well as the medical community, in order to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information possible.
  • Please continue to practice preventative measures—frequent handwashing, covering your cough or sneeze with your arm or with a tissue (and throwing the tissue away), and social distancing of at least six feet.
  • If you are not feeling well or are experiencing symptoms such as cough, fever, or shortness of breath, please call Due West Family Medicine for an appointment.  It is important that you call ahead. Do not walk in without calling first. The phone number for DWFM is 864-379-2345. Please be sure to identify yourself as an Erskine student.

Message to Students - 3/6/2020

As the college community returns from spring break, I want to remind our students and faculty that we are continuing to monitor the coronavirus situation carefully. We are working to keep current on information from the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, DHEC, as well as the state and local medical community including the Abbeville County Emergency Management Team. We are also working closely with Aramark staff who provide food and facility services to the campus.

Although the coronavirus risk in the United States remains low, this is a fluid situation, and we are prepared for the different ways it might play out in the weeks ahead. As you return to campus from the break, we want to remind you of the general health guidelines that are important during the regular flu season each year since these steps also apply to the coronavirus.

1. Keep your hands clean by washing with soap and water or hand sanitizers. You are encouraged to carry and utilize your own hand sanitizers throughout the day and to use the sanitizing stations located on the walls throughout campus.
2. You are encouraged to carry your own sanitizing wipes to wipe down desks and equipment prior to use.
3. Cover your mouth or nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
4. Don’t touch your face with unwashed hands. It’s the easiest way for germs to enter your body.
5. Eat healthy and balanced meals to strengthen your immune system. Also, get plenty of rest to strengthen your body.
6. Exercise boosts your immune system and speeds recovery from illness.
7. If you aren’t feeling well or have a fever, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone (without using fever-reducing medication).

IMPORTANT: As a reminder, Due West Family Medicine will see Erskine students at no charge. It is included in your fees. If you are not feeling well, have a cough or fever, or if you have traveled to any high-risk areas (Japan, China, Italy, South Korea, or Iran) in the past 6 weeks, please call DWFM to schedule an appointment. YOU MUST CALL AHEAD OF TIME AND SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT. DO NOT DROP IN. Make sure you identify yourself as an Erskine student. If you do not have symptoms, you do not need to call in advance.

Message to Students - 2/28/2020

As the college community begins our spring break, I want to assure our students and faculty that we are monitoring the coronavirus situation carefully.

Keep your hands clean by washing with soap and water or hand sanitizers. Several hand sanitizers are located on the walls throughout campus. RDs also have a supply of small bottles of hand sanitizer. See your RD if you’d like one.

Cover your mouth or nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.

Don’t touch your face with unwashed hands. It’s the easiest way for germs to enter your body.

Preventative Measures

We strongly urge the entire Erskine community to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 prevention measures, such as:

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

Additionally, recognizing the symptoms of COVID-19 is an important step in combating the spread of the illness. If you have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends you seek medical attention.
