Freddy Blue Devil and students with FREDstrong masks

#FREDstrong Promise

The Big Blue Family is getting back together!  We have all missed learning, teaching, working and living on campus and in the community.

Still, the reason for our unprecedented departure from campus last spring remains a concern that everyone has to take seriously. The university is developing plans and protocols to lower the risk of COVID-19 spread, which are based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, the Governor’s office, and SUNY.

Ultimately though, it’s up to each of us - every member of the Big Blue family - to be #FREDstrong and promise to do what we can to keep each other safe. Fredonia’s Mission Statement talks about the goal of preparing students to be “skilled, connected, creative, and responsible global citizens and professionals.” So make a “#FREDstrong Promise” to each other and each of those pillars:

  • Skilled: promise to strive for academic success, focused on engaging with your professors and classmates in every learning environment provided
  • Connected: promise to stay connected to the people you care about in your extracurricular activities (clubs, organizations, athletics, etc.), but promise to do so in socially-distanced groups or virtually, following Campus Life policies and expectations
  • Creative: promise to search for new and creative ways to solve problems, communicate with each other, and continue to engage in the Fredonia experience and do so safely
  • Responsible: promise to take responsibility for your own health and to consider the health of those around you by:
    • monitoring your health by conducting daily screenings
    • wearing a mask in all buildings on campus
    • practicing social distancing in all academic and life situations (yes, even nights and weekends!)
    • Following the procedures the university puts in place to lower the risk for everyone.

If we are all #FREDstrong, we can keep our Big Blue Family engaged, energized and -  most importantly - safe!  

Make the promise!
