Moundbuilder Check-In begins on Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 3 and 4, as incoming first-year students will move into the residence halls at Southwestern College. As students return, Builder Camp and Builder Fest will kick off the 2021-2022 school year. Southwestern will begin the academic year with an aggressive health plan in place. The college will offer exciting incentives to students who are vaccinated for COVID-19 at check-in and additionally will offer vaccination clinics on-campus frequently. Like last year, the college will also make ongoing COVID-19 testing available to the campus community, conducting contact tracing as needed.
