Welcome to 2021 Cleary Cougars! We have worked diligently to provide more flexibility in our course schedules and formats, extra safety protocols for residential housing, enhanced dining services, more student life activities, much more for the 2020-2021 academic year.

  • Wear facial coverings indoors.
  • Wear facial coverings when social distancing is not possible.
  • Frequently wash and sanitize your hands.
  • Maintain a safe distance as much as possible.
