Return of the Sharks: Student Guidelines

20 Safety Practices for Campus Life, Student Activities & Conveniences Athletics - Check for details. Bookstore & Retail The campus bookstore is committed to protecting the health and wellness of our students, faculty, staff, as well as its employees. In preparation for students returning to campus this fall, we will provide additional options for students to obtain course materials in a convenient and safer way. 1. Ship to Home 2. On-campus delivery* 3. Curbside pick up* 4. In-store pick up *Pending implementation – all available options will be posted online We are also implementing the same CDC-recommended precautions for visitors as NSU is doing campus-wide to keep everyone safer, including enhanced cleaning, mandatory face coverings, and physical distancing. Campus Life, Events, & Programs Student Engagement is imperative in creating a sense of community and belonging, and for nurturing our incoming and returning students. Campus Life and Student Engagement is finding creative but safer ways to provide you with fun and engaging choices during this unprecedented time. Some traditional large group events and celebrations such as Welcome Week events may have to be modified or held in multiple locations. CDC and Florida guidelines on large gatherings continue to change so plans are still fluid but we anticipate including some new approaches in the mix of campus events such as a hybrid of shared online and ground-based events, a “do-it-yourself” event where multiple participants gather supplies and then engage in activities “together” but spaced out and/or using digital platforms to form a community and group entertainment experience. Off-Campus Events such as community service activities, entertainment trips, Fins Football, etc., have been affected by the State of Florida’s cessation of group function transportation at this time. Fins Football at the Hard Rock Stadium has been cancelled for this fall but, NSU will arrange on-campus watch party experiences at the Flight Deck for high-profile Dolphins games this season subject to physical distancing requirements. Student Room Reservations will be more limited this year and must be managed to maintain physical distancing but the Office of Campus Life and Student Engagement will assist you in reserving appropriate spaces for your meetings and small group events. Again, combining the use of digital platforms to connect can also support your successful meetings and activities. As of June 26, 2020 21 | Return of the Sharks: Student Guidelines Dining & Meal Plans SharkDining is modifying the dining program, food offerings, service models, and spaces to promote a safer, healthy, and delicious experience this fall. Some new arrangements include: • Online/app ordering (using GET APP) for delivery and pick-up across many of our campus dining locations; • SharkDining will offer full meal restaurant-style options at each location with measures to avoid crowding; • Expanded Grab-N-Go and shelf-stable meals will be available; you will be able to order all your favorites online using your SharkCard with convenient on- campus delivery and pick-up options, including delivery to your residence hall room. • Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures at all locations; • Plexiglass separation between cashier and customer; • Contactless payment options with SharkCard and cashless operations; • Inside and outdoor eating areas providing for appropriate physical distancing; • Modified catering programs offering a new drop off and contactless delivery service; • Use E-commerce Shop on campus ( ) for all your convenience items and on-campus delivery. Intramural & Club Sports Under current guidelines, intramural sports will need to transition to individual, non-contact activities that will lend themselves to wearing face coverings and physical distancing guidelines, both of which are requirements for all NSU facilities and spaces. Exact activities and dates will become available prior to the start of the fall semester. Club Sport activities will be assessed per sport and will need to be able to conform to all requirements of physical distancing and face coverings. Club Sport executive board members will be contacted to discuss all available options. Student Housing & Residence Life Because of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of Residential Life and Housing has to modify the residential experience for the protection, safety, and health of the residential community. These provisions will include compliance with NSU requirements for maintaining physical distancing and use of face coverings as well as: • limitations or conditions for use of common areas in residence halls • limitations or conditions for residence hall gatherings • limited or restricted ability to have off-campus visitors enter your residence unit Additionally, should any residential student need to self- isolate or self-quarantine, you must comply with all federal, state, local, and NSU directives including observing proper CDC guidelines for isolation or quarantine; participating in all contact tracing efforts conducted by public health officials; and could include relocating you to a separate building or unit for the purpose of proper quarantine/isolation, to receive medical care, or for other health or safety reasons. We know that, for many of our students, this is your home away from home. You’ve experienced home life under pandemic conditions and we are here to support you as an NSU on-campus resident, also living under today’s pandemic conditions. University leadership is committed to supporting a safer and healthy living environment. Residential students are the key to maintaining a healthy community through personal efforts to reduce the transmission of the coronavirus.
