Dr. Kimberly Sluis shares COVID preparation ahead of first-year students moving in

It’s that time of year again where students across the nation return to their homes away from homes to start their college academic year. While for many colleges and universities, first-year student move in might be met with some apprehension this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic; however, for North Central College, students and parents alike were very enthusiastic and excited to be back on campus.

ABC 7 Chicago came to North Central to see its first-year and transfer students on their first day on campus. The media outlet spoke with Dr. Kimberly Sluis, vice president for student affairs and strategic initiatives, on how the College has prepared campus for the return of its students. This media segment aired during both the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. broadcasts on Tuesday, Aug. 18.

“"The protocols in place address the kinds of things Chapel Hill is seeing even to the monitoring on our own campus. What's happening in the community. What's happening at the state level and looking at whether a change of course is necessary," said Sluis.
