Activities & Events During COVID-19 

 

Student Involvement & Leadership

Per the Governor’s Office, there will be no student events and gatherings for the first two weeks of the spring 2021 semester to ensure students are able to get tested prior to any meetings, gatherings, and events. 

We will be offering virtual ways to connect with other students, so please follow @suu_spb on Instagram for more details. For more information about student events, please contact Heather Garcia at heathergarcia1@suu.edu 

Clubs

Club events and meetings are still happening. It is expected that all students who attend in-person events wear a mask and maintain proper social distancing where possible. Please follow the guidelines listed above for contact tracing for all club meetings.

Campus Tours & Red Riots

Campus Tours are available for booking. We are keeping groups small with a personalized tour guide (based on availability) and campus tours will be limited to single households during the governor’s State of Emergency.

Red Riot events look a little different this year. The Admissions Team is following State and CDC guidelines for showcasing SUU’s beautiful campus to ensure all parties are safe while visiting. We are closely monitoring proper procedures, positive cases in our communities, and will continue following all recommendations as they change. Although this requires us to change some aspects of our events, it is important for us to work through all obstacles to ensure you will be safe while also enjoying your time on campus. If there are any significant changes or the chance that we will have to cancel a Red Riot, you will be notified through email prior to each event. We hope to see you here for the ultimate student-life experience

Athletics

All spring athletic teams are scheduled to compete during the spring semester. More specific scheduling details will be made available as they are finalized. Things in the world of athletics are changing on a daily basis, please follow @SUUThunderbirds on Twitter and check www.suutbirds.com regularly for updates.

Alumni

While following all safety guidelines to protect those involved, it is the intent of the SUU Alumni & Community Relations Office to host our annual events in person or provide a virtual alternative. To encourage physical distancing and to make our events available for our alumni around the globe, many of our events will be livestreamed. In addition, we have added Learning Lives Forever virtual events for all to enjoy from the safety of their own homes. Visit the Learning Lives Forever website to see past virtual events and postings for the future. 

Following the executive order mandated by Utah’s Governor, it is expected that all alumni, students and community who attend our in-person events wear a mask and maintain proper physical distancing where possible. To ensure a safe environment at these events, there may be an attendance capacity at some in-person events, limited and/or spaced out seating, and other precautions that align with Utah's COVID-19 guidelines. For more information about Alumni & Community Relations events, please contact Kenten Pope at kentenpope@suu.edu.

Performing & Visual Arts

SUU’s College of Performing and Visual Arts is working to assure a safe, healthy, and arts-filled academic year. Concern for everyone’s safety and well-being is paramount – whether one is in a classroom, studio, exhibit space, onstage, backstage, or in the audience. We also believe that the arts play a crucial role at SUU in providing emotional comfort as well as an opportunity to celebrate our shared experiences as human beings.

As we provide this service alongside striving to keep our campus and local community safe, performances and artistic events will be offered to the public in a variety of presentational formats. Many experiences will be available to enjoy virtually, live-streamed, outdoors, or in reduced capacity venues. Our faculty and staff are highly creative individuals and are working to provide exciting opportunities for our students, campus, and community.

We invite you to visit CPVA’s website and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest events information.

SUMA

Southern Utah Museum of Art is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. with additional safety measures in place.

  • Stay home if you or someone in your household is sick
