We were very pleased to welcome the students of Semester 46 to campus on Wednesday, January 27th. After two days of orientation and wilderness preparation, the students departed on their 14-day First Expedition to the canyons of southeastern Utah.
Prior to the semester start, all 49 students quarantined for two weeks and received a negative COVID-19 test result. Upon arrival to HMI students were immediately separated into expedition cohorts of 9-10 students each. Every student and wilderness instructor was COVID tested on day one–the results of which have all since come back negative. Students and instructors will receive a second COVID test upon returning to campus.
