    Important update regarding classes for the Spring Semester

    McDaniel College has made the difficult but necessary decision to move all instruction to an online learning format for the remainder of the Spring Semester. The Office of Residence Life will communicate via email the process for residential students to return to campus to gather the remainder of their belongings. All on-campus events through the end of the Spring semester are now canceled. Further information about Athletics will be distributed following decisions being made by the Centennial Conference. No final decision has yet been made about Commencement. McDaniel remains committed to our students-first mission.
