campus from the air

Returning to Fredonia

Fredonia is excited to welcome back students, faculty, and staff for the Fall 2020 semester! The campus is preparing for classes beginning on Monday, August 24.

FREDstrong, definition: showing courage and resolve within the Fredonia community to support one another through challenging times.

Fredonia has long been known as a welcoming, friendly campus. Together, we can continue that atmosphere in an environment that is as SAFE as possible. Fredonia has prepared this plan to guide our collective actions so we can welcome back students and employees for Fall 2020!

While this plan has been approved by SUNY, it remains subject to change due to new information, guidance and/or direction from the state. A steering committee and three subcommittees - each made up of people from across campus - are producing detailed recommendations and guidance for the campus community. These pages will be updated as additional guidance becomes available. Please remember the situation is still fluid, and will inevitably change.

Let’s work together to be FREDstrong!
