Bryn Mawr Extends Remote Learning Through End of Semester (March 20th)
BRYN MAWR, Pa. – The College has announced the extension of the current remote learning period through to the end of the semester. With that announcement, the rest of the Bryn Mawr spring athletics season is now officially canceled.
"It is with deep sadness that I write to share the decision that Bryn Mawr will extend remote learning and a modified calendar through the remainder of spring semester and not resume in-person classes," Bryn Mawr College President Kim Cassidy stated. "While this means we will not be able to hold Commencement ceremonies as planned, we are committed to making it possible for all students to complete the semester and for seniors to complete their final work."

Centennial Conference Cancels Remaining Spring Competitions (March 19th)
Due to the global COVID-19 epidemic, the Centennial Conference, in consultation with the Presidents Council, has made the difficult decision to cancel all spring athletics competitions and championships for the remainder of the academic year. The Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference has also canceled their championship regatta.
This decision follows the Centennial's previous announcement to suspend the spring sports season indefinitely along with the NCAA's cancellation of all winter and spring championships.
The majority of Centennial Conference institutions have announced a semester-long transition to online learning. Due to the constantly-evolving nature of COVID-19 and its public health impact, this challenging decision was made with the best interests of all of our constituents in mind. The health, safety and wellness of our student-athletes and campus communities remain our top priority.
In response to COVID-19 and its impact on the 2020 spring season, NCAA Division III has approved several measures, including an additional semester and season of eligibility for all student-athletes participating in spring sports, the removal of a minimum threshold of sponsored spring sports, and the flexibility for schools to assist students with travel, lodging and meals as a result of campus displacement.
