Planning for Your Return to Campus #NMSUReady!

Update 6/1/2020 

Dear Aggies! 

As the month of May draws to a close, I cannot thank you enough for your flexibility and perseverance, especially over the past 6 weeks. As a student body, you were able to rapidly and successfully respond to changes in travel plans (quickly returning from overseas and self-isolating), adapt to online class delivery methods, and seek out ways to serve your community (utilizing your skills as first responders in the medical fields, designing and producing masks, and/or giving time volunteering at the Aggie Cupboard or community outreach centers). Simply put, the Aggie response has been amazing and awe-inspiring, and we are so proud of the Aggie Nation! 

This summer, NMSU’s main campus is operating fully online and our enrollment is actually up – a sign that as Aggies, you are dedicated to accomplishing your educational goals! We are also busy planning for your return to campus in the fall. #NMSUReady! We plan to be open and operational this fall, with dedicated faculty and staff preparing strategies and plans that will follow CDC recommendations and meet safety guidelines across academics, campus activities, and athletics. 

Rest assured, your safety is our top priority, so you can focus on your goal of learning from our internationally recognized professors and student development experts. NMSU has been consulting experts – and continues to do so – about enhanced cleaning, minimizing contact with staff, and improving the safety of services such as housing, dining, retail, advising, financial aid support, and more.  

As a part of our preparations for your arrival in August, we will be introducing information to help you learn how to navigate our new normal. You can expect to learn more about personal responsibility and how to use social distancing, courtesy face coverings, and other tools to keep yourself and your fellow Aggies safe and healthy. 

In the coming weeks, you will hear more from the provost about how professors have prepared their classes for a hybrid delivery that includes online and face-to-face learning in classrooms modified to accommodate social distancing. You will also hear soon from the president with more details about coming to NMSU this fall and how NMSU is ready for you. 

Until then, stay home and stay safe. We can’t wait to welcome you back to NMSU this fall! 

See you soon! 

Dr. Renay M. Scott, Vice President of Student Success
