Will Merrimack College be on-campus in the fall or will you be a virtual campus?

  • At this time, our campus community is exploring all options available to us that will allow for the most successful fall semester for students while ensuring safety of everyone on campus. Our team is emphasizing flexibility in the form of re-designed and even hybrid events that will allow for remote participation by both our partners and student community. While we are hoping to be on campus this fall, a final decision will be made in late summer.
