March 31: Message to CSB Students and Parents

Dear CSB Students and Parents,

You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact it has on every individual in our community. These are challenging times, and we are doing all that we can to support you in online learning and other ways to remain in community with one another. 

Please know that we appreciate the myriad ways you supported our effort to get students safely home. Online learning has been underway for more than a week and I know students are thriving academically despite this uncertain moment. I am so grateful to our faculty and staff for all of their work over the past three weeks.

We know that addressing financial considerations is a priority for many, and some of you have inquired about a refund to your account due to moving off campus. We are working on the important task of calculating financial adjustments to room and board. We ask for your patience as we work through these details and ensure that we'll provide more information soon. Please continue to check our website for updates:

I'm grateful for your continued support. These times are a testament to the strong connections and love unique to the College of Saint Benedict community.
