This Week at the BSM

A message from Dean Belcik:

Dear Students,

As you know, after spring break the university will be replacing in-person classes with online instruction for a period of at least two weeks (March 23rd- April 5th). This is an effort to help control the spread of COVID-19 through "Social Distancing."

The University has cancelled all on- and off-campus events involving OCU students between March 16th and April 5th. These measures are intended to reduce the potential spread of the virus by suspending public gatherings.

ONCE YOU LEAVE CAMPUS FOR SPRING BREAK, YOU SHOULD NOT RETURN TO CAMPUS UNTIL YOU ARE NOTIFIED THAT THE CAMPUS HAS REOPENED.

Please see the University's coronavirus page for the most up-to-date and accurate information.

Administration and staff will be on campus and can be contacted by phone or email, NOT IN PERSON, during regular business hours, 8-5 M-F.

The Bass Center will be locked.

STUDENTS WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THE FACILITY. THIS INCLUDES REHEARSAL ROOMS, PRACTICE ROOMS, AND LOCKERS.

Please make sure you have all of your personal belongings — books, music, and instrument(s) — out of the building by 5 pm on Friday, March 13th.

By Wednesday, March 18th, you should receive information about classes from your faculty including the technology resources you will need. Please be prepared to download technology as instructed by your faculty members — many will be using Zoom.

Your advisor will be contacting you via email and phone to complete your advising sessions.

We are still working through the details of how recitals will work and what the rescheduling process will look like. ALL RECITALS SCHEDULED MARCH 23RD–APRIL 5TH ARE POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Please know that after spring break, classes are in session. Each and every class assignment needs to be completed just as you would if the course were meeting in person.

This is an unprecedented time. We will get through this together!

Sincerely,


Mark G. Belcik
