Dear Corpus Christi-St. Mark’s undergraduate students,
As we announced in December, the Colleges will resume in-person undergraduate classes starting Monday, January 24. We are looking forward to safely welcoming you back to campus next week.
As always, we will continue to monitor updates from Dr. Bonnie Henry, the Provincial Health Officer, and her team. Public Health Leadership has worked with post-secondary institutions to provide guidance, support and assistance and have advised that it is safe for post-secondary students to return to in-person classes.
During this time of transition, you might have some mixed emotions – excitement to see friends and classmates in person once again, comfort in finding community on campus, and thoughts about staying safe and healthy.
We will continue to support your wellbeing this term. Throughout the Fall 2021 semester, there were no cases of COVID-19 transmission found in the Corpus Christi-St. Mark’s learning settings. Our safety plans, which included layers of protection for students, faculty, and staff, worked. During the Winter 2022 term, we will continue to have safety measures in place, such as requiring masks indoors and monitoring course enrolment so no classroom space will be at full capacity.
Our staff are working hard to prepare for your return to campus and ensure that you have the strong support and community which led many of you to choose Corpus Christi-St. Mark’s College. Keep an eye out in the student newsletters for information about events and opportunities both on campus and online, including:
Through your membership in the Alma Mater Society (AMS) of UBC, you can continue to access a variety of health and wellness resources and join student clubs and organizations.
Thank you all for your continued dedication towards creating and maintaining an excellent academic and student experience that complies with COVID-19 regulations and protects the community. Your presence makes Corpus Christi-St. Mark’s College a joyful place to be, and we can’t wait to see you soon.
