Cultural Studies Class Makes Guatemalan Worry DollsCultural Studies class has been learning about global issues. They watched a documentary about poverty in Guatemala and made Guatemalan Worry Dolls. Guatemalan Worry Dolls originated in Mayan history. The legend is that if you are kept awake at night because of your worries and stresses, you can tell them to your Worry Doll and they will take your worries and stress away so you can get a good night's sleep.

Attention Early College Students and Families

On Tuesday, September 14th, 2021, Ohio Dominican University joined other colleges and universities locally and nationally in implementing a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all students, faculty and staff.  Our Early College students and Early College counselors are members of the ODU community and are included in this mandate that requires full vaccination proof by November 15th, 2021.  Students currently enrolled in classes may finish classes this semester regardless of vaccination status, but without proof of vaccination, they will be unable to continue next semester.  This includes students who take classes in person or online.  All proof of vaccination will be completed on ODU’s campus beginning September 20th, 2021.

[email protected] is committed to keeping everyone safe and healthy. To assist in this effort, we are working with local pharmacies to offer a mobile vaccine clinic at school during the school day.  As more details become available for students to take advantage of a convenient time and place to get vaccinated, we will communicate that information to you.  We hope making this available will encourage anyone who is not yet vaccinated to do so.  The vaccine clinic will be open to all [email protected] students.  We recognize that this mandate may change a student or family’s interest in continuing in the TCS Early College program at ODU, and we ask that you talk with Ms. Hatch as soon as possible about adjusting your academic plan for future semesters to ensure you are meeting graduation requirements without ODU if you choose not to get vaccinated.

Information on ODU’s decision to mandate vaccination, as well as answers to frequently asked questions can be found here:  ODU is offering limited medical and religious exemptions.  Applications must be filed directly with ODU no later than October 15th, 2021.  Information about exemptions can be found at the link above.  

Please let us know if you have any questions.  Stay safe.

Jane Hatch and Allie Konet
