It’s warming up, and nothing lifts our mood more than a little sunshine coupled with a lot of information. And we’re bringing you all kinds of bright and shiny info in this week’s edition of In the Know.

What’s new and next


Drop it like it’s … not a class you want to finish: The course withdrawal deadline is quickly approaching. Friday, March 26, is the last day to withdraw from both full-semester and 11-week classes. You can find the info you need to withdraw from a course on the Registrar’s web page. Just fill out the form and send it to

Have fun cooking and feed the homeless: If you love to cook and want to help others, the Office of Community Service will be making vegetable gnocchi for the Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless. Join the gnocchi-making session on March 30 from noon to 2 p.m. or March 31 from noon to 2 p.m. in the Interfaith Sanctuary. Advance sign-up is required.

Course listings are out! Here’s your reminder that course listings are now available on the website. One thing to keep in mind: The goal for Fall 2021 is to have as much in-person instruction as possible, with the exception of courses/programs that were originally designed to be delivered online. Some courses have been listed as hybrid to make sure there is an in-person component given current social-distancing requirements and therefore room-capacity limits. New CDC guidance for P-12 schools suggest 3 feet of social distance is adequate to guard against the spread of COVID. If those same guidelines are recommended for higher education, it would allow more in-person opportunities for those courses currently listed as hybrid. We will keep you posted on how this evolves.

Commencement announcement … waiting is the hardest part (well, and earning that degree): We met with a large focus group of members of the Class of 2021 and 2020 last week to talk to them about the College’s commencement planning. New York State hasn’t yet announced guidelines for commencement ceremonies, but we’re moving ahead as best we can with planning an in-person event(s) given the current state limits on gatherings. After we lock down a few more important details, we’ll get an announcement to you ASAP. We’re as eager as you are to have it settled. Although, we also recognize plans could easily change based on whatever decisions the state makes about the guidelines. And rest easy: We’ll be sure to get you cap-and-gown ordering information when we make the commencement announcement, too.

While we’re talking about graduating … Senior portrait sessions will be available with iSmile Studios on campus from April 21-24 with no booking fee. See this flier for more details.

Heritage and Social Justice Week is in full swing: Heritage and Social Justice week began on Friday, and the line-up in the days ahead has a mix of in-person and virtual events.
March 22: “A Place at the Table” film showing in the Interfaith Sanctuary, 7 p.m. Advance sign-up is needed.
March 23: ALICE (Asset Limited Income Constrained, Employed) Poverty Simulation, 2 to 3:30 p.m. (via Zoom). Sign up using this link.

March 25: “Is a Year of Service for You?,” hear from alums via social media about the impact a year can make @strose-osl or Saint Rose Community Service (on Instagram)
March 26: “Winter and Spring Break Trips 2022,” a winter or spring break service trip can be a life-changing experience. To hear more about trips planned for 2022, consider attending an info session on March 26 from noon to 1:30 p.m. Join Professors John Dion and Mark Michalisin around a fire pit outside the Interfaith Sanctuary for a lunch that they’ll prepare. Or you can attend the information session via Zoom at 3 p.m. that day. Either way you go, you’ll hear about past and future service trips to Washington, D.C., New Orleans, and Guatemala.

OK, we’ve said this before, but one more time for the people in the back: Advisement Day – aka handle-your-academic-business-so-you-can-graduate-on-schedule day – is March 23. Classes are canceled that day, and you will want to meet with your faculty advisor on or around Advisement Day to discuss courses for the next semester and obtain your alternate pin number. (Grad students: The pin is emailed to you, though you should still plan to meet with your advisor.) Even if you have a hold on your account you should still meet with your faculty advisor. Please be on the lookout for an email message from the Registrar’s Office with your assigned day/time to register for classes as well as a message from your faculty advisor about how to make an advising appointment. Please prepare a tentative class schedule in advance for their review and take advantage of your time with your advisor. Here’s a list of the top five questions you should ask:
1. Am I on track to graduate on time? If not, should I consider taking any summer classes?
2. Are there any course prerequisites that I should be aware of?
3. For undergraduate students, what other courses should I consider if some of my first choices are full?
4. For undergraduate students, do I have any general elective credits to complete?
5. What opportunities or experiences should I participate in to explore my career field or prepare for graduate school (assuming you’re not already a graduate student)?
Any questions or concerns about Advisement Day or the course registration process can be directed to the Office of Academic Advising at or by calling 518.454.5217 directly.



Want another way to stay in the know? Then start following Office of Student Life’s brand-new Instagram account @csrstudentlife You will find updates from all clubs and offices about events. Spotlight features of Golden Knights and staff you should get to know. Behind the scenes content of events and highlights of all clubs. Plus, raffles and giveaways each month. Follow and comment to be entered into raffles!

Guest policy changes for the residence halls: As of March 12, 2021, residents will now be allowed to entertain one guest per living unit. A living unit is defined as a triple occupancy room, double occupancy room, single occupancy room, one suite or one apartment. A guest, in this updated policy, is a resident of the same Residence Hall who intends to visit a residence hall room but is not a resident of that room. Overnight guests are not allowed at this time.

To be clear, residents are only allowed to have one (1) guest, who is from the same Residence Hall, in their living unit at a time. Meaning, if you live with a roommate(s), you must take turns hosting a guest. If you live in an Apartment or Suite-style residence hall, you are allowed to have 1 guest per apartment/suite from that same building. This means that if you live in Centennial, only 1 guest is allowed for the entire apartment at one time.
It is important to understand that while residents are now allowed to have 1 guest in their living unit at a time, roommates/suitemates/apartmentmates MUST agree to the guest. The ability to have a guest does not override others’ ability to feel comfortable with the guest in the living unit. Please work with your RA and AC if you need assistance coming up with a schedule that is mutually agreeable to all parties.

Anytime a guest is in the living unit, masks by all individuals present must be worn at all times unless you are eating.

Due to federal/state/local health guidelines in reference to the COVID-19 pandemic, this policy may evolve as the public health guidelines evolve throughout the 2020-2021 academic year.

Take the survey, please: As we mentioned in last week’s edition, we have partnered with the Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium (HEDS) to conduct a College-wide survey to understand how students, faculty, staff, and administrators perceive Saint Rose’s climate and level of support for diversity, equity, and inclusion. The survey also assesses whether and how often campus members have experienced bias, discrimination, or harassment. We ask you to take this survey to help our College become a more inclusive and equitable environment. We will use the results to inform and improve policies and practices at Saint Rose. We will not use the information to investigate specific individuals or incidents. If there is an incident of bias, discrimination, or harassment that you would like to report, please click here.

Use Navigate to schedule those appointments: Please remember that appointments with campus offices should be scheduled through the Navigate app. We’ve had some visitors to Saint Joseph Hall recently who did not schedule using the app, and that’s part of the COVID-19 protocols. Don’t have Navigate? (We’re lowering our glasses and giving you the look, you know). Learn how to get it and about all the amazing features it offers students on our website. And we’ll help you with the app if you’re having trouble. Just give us a shout at

Ask a Golden Knight Guide: The Golden Knight Guide program is a mentorship program to support first-year students. During “Ask a Golden Knight Guide,” students can jump on a Zoom session from 2 to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays, and the Zoom will be staffed by Student Development mentors who can offer guidance, help students explore College resources, and offer a chance for students to meet other students with the same questions.

Interested in being a mystery shopper in the dining hall? The mystery shopper eats, monitors, and documents food conditions in the dining hall throughout the semester. On a weekly basis, a mystery shopper will submit a report to the Associate Vice President for Financial Reporting and Comptroller documenting their experience and findings. To be eligible to be a mystery shopper, a student must be eligible for work study and have an active College meal plan. Reach out to if you’re interested.

Volunteer opportunity: Do you have a few hours to volunteer between now and August? Dr. Julienne Cuccio Slichko, assistant professor of literacy and special education, is looking for volunteers to help promote, organize, and work on The RIDE 4 Autism. Proceeds of this event are going to the Friday Knights program at Saint Rose for kids on the autism spectrum. The motorcycle ride/BBQ fundraiser takes place on Saturday, August 21. You don’t have to ride a motorcycle to participate, and you do not have to attend the event to volunteer. To volunteer, you can sign up online. Email Dr. Slichko at if you have questions. Why help? Last year, the ride raised $4,000 for Friday Knights.

Remembering those we’ve lost: The Office of Spiritual Life recognizes that many people in our community may have lost loved ones this year. A Wall of Remembering has been created in the Interfaith Sanctuary, and students are invited to add the names of those they’ve lost to the wall as a way to honor them.



Find a buddy for when you study: Speaking of how incredible the Navigate app is, you can use it to find a study buddy for your courses. The process is simple:
• Go to Study Buddies in the Navigate menu.
• Select the classes where you want to connect with a Study Buddy.
• If another student in the class has indicated they want a Study Buddy, too, their name will appear. If no one shows up, keep checking back.
• You can email whoever has said they’re looking for a Buddy right from the app and arrange a time to meet (either masked and socially distanced in person or online).
• Follow these tips for Study Buddy success: Choose the right platform for your needs (Zoom, etc.), set an agenda, rotate and share responsibilities, and set regular meetings throughout the semester.

Taylor P. Farnsworth Annual Scholarship: The family of Taylor Paige Farnsworth ’18 wish to honor her life by creating a scholarship in her name. The scholarship will be awarded to a Saint Rose student enrolled in the B.A. in Communications degree program, with first preference for a student concentrating in journalism. Students interested in receiving the Taylor P. Farnsworth Annual Scholarship should submit a one-page essay on the following topic to the chair of the Communication Department by April 1. What value does journalism have in society and how do you think you can contribute to the field of journalism? The scholarship may be applied to any academic-related expenses including tuition, fees, book, or other materials. Email your essay submission to

Show off your work! The 2021 Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held on Tuesday, April 13, from 5 to 6 p.m. on Zoom. The Symposium is an opportunity for undergraduates to present their research projects to faculty, peers, and other members of the Saint Rose community. This experience can be especially valuable to students who will be participating in other regional or national conferences or for those interested in pursuing a graduate degree. All participants must submit a project abstract, prepare a formal research poster, and attend the virtual Symposium. Participants are also encouraged to compete for the Library Undergraduate Research Symposium. Cash prizes will be awarded to the best research projects in two broad categories: Mathematics and Science and Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Students have until March 30 to submit their proposals. Find more information on submitting a project here.

Study stops: If you’re commuting to campus and need a place to take a class or study between on-campus classes, we’ve once again designated rooms throughout campus as Study Stops. Just be sure to follow social distancing measures and use headphones if you’re taking a class.



Student Events Board (SEB) honored with national award: We’re late to the party with this, but an overdue party is always better than no party at all. SEB was recently awarded the 2020 Programming Organization of the Year by the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities (APCA) – a national award. With a drive to increase student involvement and offer creative and fresh events, it should come as no surprise that SEB was previously the recipient of the 2019 Boyd Jones National Organization of the Year as well as the 2018 Northeast Regional Organization of the Year. Read what SEB President Jordan Veihdeffer ’21 has to say about the award and more in this story.



Reporting possible exposure: Please remember if you have been exposed to anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19 or you suspect you may have been exposed but are unsure, contact Health Services at 518.454.5244 or email to notify the College and discuss your particular situation so we can best advise you on how to proceed. Remember, this directive applies whether the positive case is affiliated with Saint Rose or not.

Easter break and travel: With April fast approaching, many are looking forward to the Easter break, which grants us a long weekend by way of a Friday (April 2) and Monday (April 5) holiday from classes. The CDC is still discouraging unnecessary travel in order to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. If you do plan to travel, please continue to follow the CDC travel guidelines for maximizing public health noted here. In addition, be mindful of the changes to the NYS travel guidelines that will take effect April 1.

New support groups: The Counseling and Psychological Services Center is pleased to announce the availability of group counseling this semester. Our center is offering four pandemic support groups and a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) support group via Zoom.

  • Pandemic: Mondays (2 p.m.), Tuesdays (4:30 p.m.), Wednesdays (11 a.m.), Fridays (2 p.m.)
  • BIPOC: Thursdays at 5 p.m.

Testing details: Each week we work to randomly test 25% of the on-campus population of students and employees for COVID-19. Please be sure to respond if you receive email noticed that you’ve been selected. The testing is conducted using a non-invasive technique involving a saliva sample. You do not need to contact Health Services for this. They will reach out on Thursdays to those who have been randomly selected via email. If you are having COVID-19 testing done, be sure to not drink or eat anything a half hour before your testing appointment. If you cannot make testing times, we ask that you email If your plans have changed and you are no longer attending in-person classes or coming to campus for any reason, we ask that you notify us by emailing

How does quarantine work?: We’ve heard some questions about the quarantine procedures, and what happens when students have to quarantine at one of our partner hotels. That information can be found on the restart website. To answer the most common question: If a student is told to quarantine because they violated the guest or COVID policies, this quarantine must be done off-campus. If a student is not able to go home to quarantine, the Office of Residence Life will work to make arrangements for the student to complete the quarantine in a local hotel and the cost will be billed to the student’s College account. Any student who is exposed, through no fault of their own, will be provided with quarantine housing on-campus or at a local hotel which will be covered by the College in accordance with NYS guidance. If you still have a question that isn’t answered on the restart website, please email so we can update that information to provide further details.

Help with substance abuse: The Counseling and Psychological Services Center says that with the pandemic, substance abuse is on the rise. Are you struggling but not sure if you’ve crossed the line when it comes to using substances like drugs or alcohol? Check out this guide from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. This flier from the Counseling and Psychological Services Center also explains signs of substance abuse and how to reach out to them help.
